Last night I was pondering what to do about my awesome Smokin' Hot mani, which was slightly beaten up (more than I care for), and cleverly decided to look at my CND Effects collection.
I settled on Emerald Shimmer, added a coat, and voila!
It's SO nice. I absolutely love the result. I was worried that the shimmer might look streaky, but it applied so perfectly.
I also applied a coat of regular top coat over, and it took too long to dry, so I ended up with some dents and sheet marks. Sorry about that! In any case, I am definitely going to be playing with my CND Effects more in the near future. They rock my world. :)
