|Straight nail vinyls|
Here we go with part one! My polish to swatch is Douceur. It's a milky pink jelly-crème with fuchsia and dark pink mini glitter, as well as some holo micro shimmer. The picture below shows the Picture Polish brush, it's small and flat. I definitely prefer the flat brushes... yall already know that!

For a base coat I used my standard ridge-filling basecoat. Below shown is one thin coat. It does dry just very so slightly matte.
Below shown is 2 thin coats.
I added a third thin coat for my final swatch. If you used a pale pink base you could get away with 2, or if your second coat was a bit thicker but I used 3 thin coats. As I previously said it does dry slightly matte so I did add a clear topcoat.
Here is a closer look at the "straights" set of vinyls I was sent. As you can see there are 3 different sizes/widths.

How pretty is Fairy Floss?

I decided on a design and placed my vinyls. I started with the skinniest ones on my ring finger for an accent nail.

Add the second color, here is Malt Teaser. Just one medium-ish coat, too thick and it will run everywhere.

Here is the final product! I was quite pleased with how they turned out, they even create an optical illusion depending on whether you are looking at the pink or the brown! Try it!
Now for a bajillion more pics!
This is kind of a side note but I wanted to include it! I wore this design for a full 2 days. On the third day before I took it off I thought I would see what it looked like with matte topcoat! Lovely! Also note the minimal tip wear after 2 1/2 days :)
