How to extend the life of your Nfu Oh 61
I think I've shown this one before but it's China Glaze's Hologram from the Tronica collection, 2 coats. I actually added a third coat the next morning since it wasn't quite enough.
I did a terrible job freehanding some black tips and then I stamped a little spider on the ring finger using Wet and Wild's Black Creme plus konad plate m1.
While I was wearing Hologram for the first day (I almost always do my stamping on the second day...weird or no?) I kept thinking that this is probably the perfect basecoat for Nfu Oh 61. So I decided to try it out:
Only the pinky nail is Nfu Oh 61 (1 coat) over Hologram. There is also a topcoat on my nails here. So everyone who said that the Tronica's aren't holo can kiss my ass lol ;) And wow did this ever extend the life of Nfu Oh 61! The first time I used Nfu Oh 61 I had chips the very next morning and it was pretty much toast by day 2. I will be using Hologram under it from now on for sure!
