Black on Blue Double Lightning

When I went shopping this weekend I found a Pure Ice layering polish I have been looking for, but I also found this amazing blue called French Kiss from Pure Ice. It covers in 2 coats, which is saying something for Pure Ice! Of course I had to try it out right away.
Here we go! 2 coats of PI French Kiss with zero topcoat! Shiny!!

Can you see why I fell in love with this one? My hands/cuticles are a little rougher than usual, because we were helping with a family member building their home.
 I used scotch tape and Kraft scissors with a pattern called "flash" to make a single lightning bolt on each nail with Wet N Wild Black.

This IS with SV topcoat, because I didn't want any issues with the tape on the black. I thought this was so cool-looking that I almost left the mani like this, LOL!
Then I used the same method to cover the lightning on one side and make another bolt right next to the black with a franken top coat that I made...I have been dying to try this franken!

Maybe a little more subtle than I had planned, but I loved how this mani turned out. 2 coats of SV over the top for extreme glossiness!
P.S. Wow, I just looked at these close up and noticed the air bubbles in the SV top coat...better get my thinner out!

It's fantastic, I dig it! The taped lightning worked out great and that blue is to die for

Great mani, and isn't that blue just awesome? Pure Ice definitely has some gems in the collection.

I have never seen a Pure Ice polish as opaque or richly pigmented as this one...I keep going back and looking at the plain color, lol. D.efinitely a favorite already
