I was up late as usual and decided to do my nails with the blue Hot topic polish I recently picked up. I wanted to get a pic taken though before I start my day in case this mani gets chipped or messed up. All my light bulbs are energy efficient and the lighting is low. I suppose I should buy a few brighter lights. Oh well... Anyways, I used Essie first base coat, two coats of Hot Topic Blue, (no name on bottle) and Seche Vite top coat. I really could have used only one coat this is very opaque only my inner me went for two. I like this color but I really hate the Hot Topic nail brush it was hard to hold and the polish drips off it like an eye dropper.
