Did anyone notice the change I made to my blog over the weekend? It's small, but a big deal. I've got my own domain! I'm now officially TopCoatIt.com. Yeehaw! Update your bookmarks people!
Oh man, I love this layering combination! I've had Cauldron Drippings for a few months now and haven't ever really found the opportunity to use it. I couldn't think of the perfect polish to use it over; until now.
I give you NYX Ink. I would call this a cobalt, blue jelly. It's gorgeous! The only other time I had used this polish was when I made my first franken, Starry Starry Sky. Ink was my predominant color in that creation. A negative of Ink? It stained my nails. An extra coat of base coat probably would've solved that. The worst staining was where the polish went outside my base coat. I had to bust out the whitening toothpaste and nail brush. A good scrub and almost all of the blue was gone and my nails were minty fresh. :)
The first time I saw a swatch of Cauldron Drippings I was in love! I'm not a crazy glitter lady, but I couldn't resist this one. The orange got me. Orange glitter isn't something that can be layered over just any polish. I try not to pick the obvious choice for polish colors in situations like this, so it took me a while to decide how to use it.
I was tempted to do this as a full mani, but was glad I didn't do it once I realized how much Ink stains. When I use it again, I'll double or triple up on my base coat.
