I've been wearing this combo since very late on Wednesday night. That is four days, Nation!!
The success in duration is largely in part to my nails being super short, I'm sure of it.
Here I started with a coat of StrangeBeautiful polish from the Dickensian volume. It's a very dark gray and looks black on, actually. It has tiny silver sparkles. It was opaque in one coat, however, gave me all sorts of application grief with a wonky curved brush and thick, gloppy formula.
Nonetheless, the StrangeBeautiful did its job in providing me with good underwear for Hits Borealis! I used one coat of Borealis and then two coats of Butter London top coat after.
Borealis has a somewhat large and fluffy brush, but didn't give me much trouble while applying. I got too much glittah on my ring finger, but I don't think it's really noticeable.
I LOVE this mani. I'm so glad to have had it on for four days! I'm going for a fifth, tomorrow, too, which might end up being a record or something. I suppose I really should keep my nails super short all the time so I can have better wear! :)
