Orly Royal Navy

Hi Kids!
It's been a week since my last post, and all I have to show you is the base for my next 'nadicure. Yesterday was my day off, and I needlessly spent 5 hours in court for a minor traffic violation. The issuing officer wrongly checked the "court appearance" box on the ticket, and I sat there and sat there, and sat there, until I was the very last soul in the room. The judge and clerk felt so sorry that they dropped my traffic fine. Ironically all I had to pay was court costs. Considering that I have but one day off, it was little in compensation for the 5 hours I wasted there. I would have gladly paid my fine and court costs- twice over- just to be out of there in a timely manner.

Anyway, I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to do my fill and apply my base color- which was a toss-up between Maybelline Vanishing Venus and Orly Royal Navy. I don't usually wear a stainable color on newly applied acrylic until it cures for at least 24 hours. I was so taken with the fake nail swatch of Royal Navy, I decided to go for it anyway. I don't wear a basecoat, but in this case, I applied an OPI that Amber uses as a precaution against the possibility of staining. Wow! It's been so long, I forgot how much smoother color applies over a basecoat! I just may add using a basecoat to my routine.

Finally!- Orly Royal Navy... a seriously gorgeous, jacked-up, bright blue with a conservative amount of turquoise sparkle. This was 2 coats- no top coat. It was a bit runny  first touch on the nail, but thickened quickly after a couple of strokes. It dried to a satin finish and to the touch fairly quickly.
Royal Navy reminds me of concentrated printer ink- so awesome! After work tonight, I will be adding another coat and some 'nading.

I've seen this color & think I need to pick it up =)  Too bad they probably would not have tolerated you bringing nail supplies & making good use of your time in the back of the courtroom XD
