OPI I Lily Love You + LA Colors Bubblegum

This is not my first attempt in nail painting. I started this little vain hobby of mine early in the year but did not take any photos of my nails, except showing them to my friends and family.

LA Colors Bubblegum is sheer pearly pink, you have to put 3-4 coats to see the color but don't expect full opacity. In my opinion, it will be great for bridesmaids, young teens, formal events... and might even suitable for french manicure. OPI I Lily Love You is pink base with crazy glitters in all sizes and shapes. I love the irregularities!

However when layered with Bubblegum my nails became cotton candy pink, though with fun flakes & glitters, it's just not the kind of shade I favor. It's like Barbie with her standard manicure :-\ I can do with dusty pink, pastel pink, neon pink, fuschia, bright pink but cotton candy pink aka barbie pink is "meh" in my palette.
