L'Oreal Gold Dust - Update

Hi, all.  Just a quick update.  

After a day of wear with no base or top, I had mostly only minor tip wear, mainly on my right hand - I'm right handed so that makes sense.  The left corner of the right thumb was pretty well worn off.  The only chipping was a tiny little one on the middle finger of my right hand.  The original sparkle had also gotten quite dull after all the hand washing, lotion and oil applying.

I did repairs then put on a third coat.  The third coat brightened everything back up again so the color looked fresh once more.  Then I decided to go ahead and top coat.  The Sally Hansen Insta-Dri was already out so I put one coat of that on and boy, did the sparkle come right back out.

That sparkle just played havoc with the camera flash.

Obviously, this polish is a top coat eater so if you want it perfectly smooth, it will probably take several coats.  I used just one because I wanted the polish protected from fading but still have a slightly rough texture.  And though it's hard to tell from this picture, the top coat actually deepened the colors.  Again, the purple is a bit more blue leaning in real life than it appears here.   

Never thought I'd like these high texture polishes but I've been converted into a fan.  I also have Zoya Liberty languishing in my stash.  I might just pull her out for next week's nails.  

That's it for now.  Thanks for reading and stay tuned.
