I almost didn't post this. But you know what? Sometimes I fail and that's ok.
My base color (After School Boy Blazer by Essie) was way too dark. This was only 1 coat. I should have realized it but I held onto the hope that the red (Red Carpet by Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear) would show through. Wrong! It didn't. So here is what I did: I applied 1 coat of blue. Used a dotting tool to make some red blotches. Then I added the white flowers (Blanc by Essie).
