Blue and shimmery white skittlette

Hi everyone!

Quick manicure and quick post today and the title says it all: a blue and shimmery white skittlette.

indoors, no flash

On all my nails except my pinky you see three thin coats of Liquid Sky Lacquer Emily's Sky Is Always Blue, a lovely dusty blue with a subtle scattered holo. First coat went on very sheer but that all changed with the second coat. I'm not sure if I really needed a third coat but I thought I could see a little VNL so three coats it was. It dried to a semi matte finish so I added a coat of Seche Vite to help it dry and add some gloss. My pinky was covered in three coats of Zoya Genesis and I stamped my middle and ring finger with Born Pretty plate BP-08 and Hit The Bottle Moonshine, a beautiful shimmery off white. Another coat of Seche Vite and... nope, not ready yet. I felt that my pinky lacked some shimmer so I rummaged through my stash for something to add to it. The something extra came in the form of OPI Happy Anniversary, a sheer pearlescent off white that added just enough shimmer for me to be satisfied (don't ask me why I didn't just use Moonshine, I just thought of that now that I'm typing this...). No Seche Vite on top of Happy Anniversary as I quite like the finish as it is.

The polishes that were used:
Zoya Genesis, Liquid Sky Lacquer Emily's Sky Is Always Blue, Hit The Bottle Moonshine, OPI Happy Anniversary

I like the combination of the dusty blue and the off white and as usual the Hit The Bottle stamping polish was a dream to work with so this manicure was done in just over 15 minutes... told you it was quick :)
What do you think?

Zoya Genesis was bought from Pretty Polish.
Liquid Sky Lacquer Emily's Sky Is Always Blue and Hit The Bottle Moonshine were bought from Hypnotic Polish.
