Beaded French Tips
That's exactly what happened with this mani. I wanted to use some bullion beads for diagonal french tips but oh boy!!! Were they hard to stick down in a straight line!!
Sinful Colors Dream On, which I used for the base colour, is an electric purple with hot pink undertones which dries matte because it's a neon and that was how I intended to keep it to contrast with the glossy OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender tips!!!...But oh no... I had to add 2 coats of top coat to keep the beads in place (whose colour also smudged!):
Here is 3 coats of Dream On while it was still satin matte. BTW, I have used Dream On on my nails before and once on my cousin's nails. On both occasions, if left matte with no top coat, it chips within 24 hours :-(
