I'm back with 'Look 2' of my previous manicure and this time I went for an ice-cream/sorbet shade called Sundance from one of my favourite brands, IBD Just Gel Polish.
To create this manicure (after soaking off Look 1 - IBD Chic To Chic) I applied Sundance to five fingernails and kept Siberian Minx on my other five nails.
It took 4 coats to get a nice opaque finish without any visible streaks. Alas, this is one of the pitfalls of alot of pastel shades, but for this shade the extra coats were worth it. That said, I don't think I would envisage ever using this shade for a full manicure as three coats is generally my limit as extra coats increase the initial service time and the subseqent soak off time.
To tie in the existing accent nails, I removed the temporary stamping and re-stamped the Siberian Minx nails with Kaleidoscope by El Corazon Stamping Polish in the shade Apple Flower. Apple Flower is a delicious pale peach which matches IBD Sundance perfectly!
I used one of my many overlooked but much loved stamping plates Apipila Super Plate B to finish the look. I opted for a tile'esque flower image and covered with Love Angeline Topped With Love a super glossy fast drying regular polish topcoat so I could change the stamping again for Look 3.
I love how this manicure turned out and really enjoyed wearing it! It was very easy to wear but eye-catching enough to get a fair few admiring comments. In fact, a dear client of mine has asked for this to be her next gel polish manicure!
