Sea Urchin

Barielle Sea Urchin is a fantastic densely packed green, blue and gold glitter polish. It was a bit of a pickle (get it? going with the green theme here) to apply and even at three coats wasn't completely opaque. It was hard to get nice edges and clean up was next to impossible, which is why application is important on this one. Like most dense glitters, especially those that are meant to be opaque but have large glitters, placement is key. I've found thicker layers and painting the nail with the brush parallel to the nail is the best, that way you don't take most of the glitter with you when you paint the nail.

Only one pic on this one. It chipped within the first few hours. It was fun though, I don't normally wear a lot of greens but it was so pretty - the name is very appropriate. Made me think of mermaid tails.
