Mash-Up: Toucan Touch This 24 Carrots Bold!

Yeah I know...I'm pushin it with that "Mash-Up" title, LOL!

Today I have a bright combo I wore a couple weeks ago.

KBShimmer "Toucan Touch This" and "24 Carrot Bold".

I applied 3 coats of "24 Carrot Bold" and 4 coats of "Toucan Touch This" to the middle 2 nails. I applied 2 coats of top coat to the entire manicure, the it was perfectly smooth. This manicure lasted 4 days, with very small chips to my right thumb nail only. :)

"24 Carrot Bold" Matte is a red-orange polish that is a stunning summer color.  This orange polish has a gold micro flake that shines in the light.  This color is super pigmented, so 2 coats is usual, but because I painted my layers thinner, I used 3 coats.

"Toucan Touch This" has a chartreuse green base, with gold, green, teal, blue, and orange hex glitters, some holographic. Micro teal, orange and blue bars are accented by micro orange glitters. I love how tropical this polish is.

It reminds me of birds and Brazil, even though I have never been to Brazil, but I have seen birds, LOL! Bright greens with oranges, blues and golds, gorgeous! I did thin coats, because I did not want the glitter to look clumpy, so 4 coats was perfect for "unclumped" opacity. :)

I loved how bright this manicure was.  Sometimes I'm in the mood for a crazy, LOUD manicure and this was the perfect manicure for my mood.  Of course this manicure attracted a lot of attention...it looks like I have a toucan on my hands, LOL :)

I have this in my "to be swatched' pile. You've inspired me to move my swatching around a little! I really love how this looks on you.
