Green Week Day One: Zoya Holly and some friends

I swatched Holly as soon as I got it, and then Hauly over at Haul of Fame mentioned that she was tempted to layer Barielle Buddha-ful over an emerald green, but she didn't think it would work. Um, yeah, she was completely correct! Pictures of that particular failicure are at the bottom of this post. After removing the non-beautiful Buddha-ful Holly from my nails, I started again with one coat of Orly Ridge-filler, two coats of Holly and one coat of Color Club Covered in Diamonds. Much better! I took pictures before putting on two coats of Nubar Diamont, because Covered in Diamonds has lumpy flakies in a clear base.

  1. Love this! Yeah, the Buddah-ful doesn't look to great over the green, it just kind of makes it cloudy haha!

  2. Cloudy is a nice way to put it, lol! But the Color Club is gorgeous. :)

  3. Yay! This looks good with Covered in Diamonds, I wish I could say the same for the Buddah-ful combo.
    Thanks for trying it though, it was optimistic! ;)

  4. I'm always up for trying a layering combo, and I'm not afraid to be a bad example for others, so I always post my mistakes. :D Thanks for the inspiration, and I'm glad you got your comment mojo back!
