Savvy Fairy Twinkle is such a pretty color (pink with a flash gold shimmer). For some reason, I had the hardest time with trying to find a good color ‘nad to go with it. I wanted to do a bronze or a gold, but that did not show up well at all. So I tried hot pink, and that was a flop too. Finally I gave up on the blending and went with the contrast.

I started to use a new base coat (well sort of base coat) called Gelous which you can get at Sally Beauty Supply. It works really good and my manis have been lasting for at least a few days. Anyway, the reason why I mention Gelous is that I use one coat over my polish then use Seche Vite Top Coat to seal it off. The next day I would ‘nad over it and put a coat of Nailtek II Intensive Therapy over it. I’ve noticed a subtle floating effect that the ‘nad has since I’ve been doing that. I think that is because of Gelous’ finish. That or I’m just losing my mind. Anyway, I wouldn’t run out to get Gelous just to get the floaty look, but if you need an awesome base coat, this is a great one. I’ve tried Nailtek II Foundation and Sally Hansen Nail Quencher and this is by far the best.
Thanks for looking!
