Feature Friday - Cherry-Tipped Marshmallows

And then there were 18!  Thank you so much for being here!!!

Since I've been taking this stroll down Colorama memory lane, I decided to show the mani I talked about using Marshmallow Glaze with Cherry Tips.  I did this one two different ways to show you guys.  Let me know which you like better!  And if I didn't tell you when I swatched Marshmallow Glaze, let me tell you now.  It goes on like a freakin' dream!  Great, even coverage and I actually like their brush.  It's a little wider than I usually go for, but it works well!

I started with a base coat of SH Double Duty.  For the first mani, I then painted on two coats of Colorama's Marshmallow Glaze and followed it up with a coat of SV.  Then I taped off my tips and painted on Colorama's Cherry Tips.  Finished this off with a coat of SV.  Painting the tips last allows the red to really pop.


Then, I did the mani again.  But this time, I painted my tips red immediately following the base coat and topped them with SV.  And then I painted two coats of Marshmallow Glaze over the whole nail, including the tips.  This results in a muted tip that almost looks like a frosted pink.  This is a little more conservative with less pop.  It kind of unifies the whole mani.  What do you think?  Which do you like better?


Have a fantabulous weekend everyone!
