Cult Nails Iconic plus a crazy layering experiment....Tons of pics!

Good morning! Wow, it's been a week since I last posted. I'm not sure how that happened! LOL! I kept doing my nails last week, and taking pics. but never got them posted here, so I have about a week's worth of blogging to catch up on.

The first one I'm going to show you is another polish by Cult Nails called Iconic. This is the second CN polish I've used, and I LOVE it! Iconic is a deep red with flakies! Application was wonderful and I used two coats.

I'm not sure what was wrong with me the day I decided to wear this, but I ended up doing lots of different layers, and came up with some crazy combos. The first couple are mild. LOL!

I topped Iconic off with Colorama Shimmer Girl, which is one awesome flakie.

Then I decided to matte it using Essie Matte About You.

Here's where it starts to get a bit crazy. For some reason I decided to add Black Shatter to it all. Wasn't very thrilled with it.

Since I wasn't too crazy about it, I decided to add yet another coat of the Colorama Shimmer Girl polish.

And then finally, I added yet one more coat of Essie Matte About You to finish my crazy mani. off!

If you made it all the way through this, I think you deserve a cupcake! Ha, Ha! ;-)

Thanks for looking, and I hope you all have a wonderful Mon!
