Hey, everyone! A couple weeks ago I showed you swatches of Philly Loves Lacquer‘s new Summer Down The Shore collection, which releases this sunday, June 1st! I wanted to remind you guys of the launch as well as play around with some of the shades, so I decided to do this fun look! I also took this as an opportunity to do a quick test of Philly Love’s Lacquers new base & top coats!
I began with a base of four of the holos, from pinkie to index I used Philly Loves Lacquer Love Those Wildwood Days, Philly Loves Lacquer Absecon, Philly Loves Lacquer Wildwoods By The Sea and Philly Loves Lacquer Island Beach. I then stamped using Konad White and a design from the MoYou London Sailor 05 Plate.
As mentioned above, I also took this chance to try out some new products, the Philly Loves Lacquer I-95 Quick Dry Top Coat and the Philly Loves Lacquer Penndot Sticky Base Coat. As a blogger, I don’t always get a chance to wear a mani more than a few days (if that), but I resolved to wear this at least until my next piece of nail mail came in. That ended up being only 3 days, but hey- better than one, right?
The base coat applied easily, as did the top coat. The consistency of it is closer to Out The Door than it is to Seche, meaning it’s on the thinner side, which I like (I use Gelous anytime I need a thicker top coat, such as for chunky glitters). I stamped after only ten minutes and did not experience any smudging, which was great! I did have the stamping on one nail smear but the others all were fine, so that may have been something I did.
Day 1: No chips
Day 2: My thumb on my right hand did chip, however the nail underneath it is slightly cracked and bends and it seems anything I wear chips there within a day, so that wasn’t surprising. Not even tip wear on any of the other fingers.
Day 3: No chips or any tip wear!
So, although I didn’t have the time to test it out quite as long as I wanted for this particular mani, overall it worked out really well for me and I plan to use it in the future, too!
What do you think of this mani? Are you planning to pick up any of the new shades at the launch? Let me know in the comments!
