I wanted to try my new CND Raspberry Sparkle again and thought that it would pair well with S.C. Slate. A gray with a subtle silver shimmer. It does look good, but it also looks a lot like an opaque version of Greys Anatomy or Not Like the Movies. Raspberry Sparkle has a pinkish shimmer that also flashes green in certain light. The CND Effects line is a lot of fun to try and after a couple uses of Raspberry Sparkle, I went back and bought the Jade and Crimson Sparkle too. I can't wait to try those out!
After a couple days, I decided to refresh my mani with some stamping using Bundle Monster plates 311 and 317. My ring finger is the one that tore while removing polish. My cuticles also got wrecked from the chlorine. It was from just 2 days of swimming in a pool.
