If you don’t have it, made do with what you’ve got!

Now I’ve been fully regretting not getting my hands on the China Glaze It’s A Trap-eze polish…

The thing is, I really don’t need more… (though you will see that I didn’t do very well in upholding that idea for others…) but this polish really great on me.

So what is a girl to do, when it is sold out?

Try and recreate her own. I should really stress the try, as it turned out nothing like it! lol but you can read about that more down at the end…

(On a side note, I couldn’t figure out why my pictures would turn out this weird hazy/blurry on the Hybrid. Then it clicked. Maybe I should clean the lens. Yeah…it was a very “Duh!”moment for me. I should now have things under control…)

(that is what I meant by weird hazy blur…ah…I should have thought of that sooner…)

Anyway, here is what I learned from this.

First off, get rid of the holo glitter. I LOVE holo glitter, but this wasn’t the place for it.
Second, do a double decker sandwich. Meaning, Innocence, 2 coats of Supernova, and then 2 coats of Innocence to finish it off. Now that I think about it, I probably could forgo the initial Innocence application.

THAT should give me a closer look to Its a Trap-eze, though not so in colouring.

EDIT:
Okay it was bugging me so much I redid it on a nail chip. THIS is what I had in mind. But you really do need like three coats of Supernova.
Faking another polish :P

I might consider just mixing up a small batch of a franken. Maybe that will decrease the number of layers I would need? Another experiment for another day :)

Well to move on to something else…
I have the nail chip swatches, bottle shots, and mini info on the Hard Candy polishes. I just need actual manicures of them and I will be set.
