Lay it On Me!!

Hello everyone! I have a fun post today! It's a 3-layer polish called Lay It On Me. Are you excited yet? In the photo above I have: Lima, 3rd Dimension, Singapore, Vegas


Lima - Baby blue, then bright, light pink, and then lavender. If I didn't go doing a third coat you would have seen some nice pink streaks on at least the ring finger, but I did, so I covered it up. You can see little bits of purple best on the middle finger.


3rd Dimension - Neon purple, then black and then bright teal. This comes out as a very mixed mix(?) of the first two layers. It gives a deep black purple that dries matte thanks to the neon! However, it makes me think that if that is what I wanted, I could just mix neon purple and black together! But if you look close you can see the streaky properties. I wish that there were distinct bits of teal throughout. That would look amazing.


Singapore - This screamed "America" to me, and turned me on to it, but it's named Singapore! Ha! I do like all the names of these, by the way. This is red with glitter, then an off-white, and then blue with glitter. It mostly comes out red, but you can see some white on the ring finger. It would have had more if I didn't do the second coat.


Vegas - Neon city! Neon pink, blue and purple. You can see the purple streaks best with this one, on the ring finger. Click the pic for the enlarged size to really see it well! Plus I love the look of the pink with the blue added to it. Not as neon as the bottle looks, but still bright and punchy. I looove this one.

So these are pretty cool! I think that the trick to getting the most streak though, is to get the brush in as far as possible, which would mean screwing it down every dip. Sounds like a pain, but the streaky-est (that sounds like a bad thing!) nails were the ones that were painted first, since those got a fresh dippin' from all the way at the bottom. Also, I bet that you would get more mix of colors after using it for a while, because if you see the top color the most, and then you use all that color, then you are going to be left with the other two. There is no way around it. Maybe if I have lots of time to fiddle around, I'll do a ton of manis with one of them and see if I can use it down to get the other colors. Experiment time!!

I found these at Meijer, but I believe they are available at drugstores. Also you can get the Claire's version (Mixables) at Claire's. I know for sure I have seen their version of 3rd Dimension and it looks the same.

On an unrelated note, my blog will be quiet for a while since I have friends flying in today and tomorrow for Lollapalooza this weekend. (yes!) So I will not have time for posts. :c(
But I have more (lots!) to come and will be up and running next week!!
