Like most BL, this has an amazing formula, and the glitter is opaque in 2 coats. Even without topcoat, it was smooth, but a little matte.
I used tiny striping tape to create this effect with BL Scouse. I got my inspiration from this look by Miss Ladyfinger.
Scouse needed two coats to be opaque, but with the tape, I couldn't wait for a layer to dry and then apply another layer, so I just put one very thick layer on. You can actually see the difference in thickness in the pix above, but a thick topcoat like Seche Vite can help blend the layers together and create the illusion of one layer.
Makes me think of wild, stripey socks from the 80's.
