Amy's Nail Boutique Liberty

I have started to add a top coat to my manicure on the 7th day that I wear it, just before I take it off the next day to do a new manicure.  I do my nails on Sundays, so the 7th day is Saturday, and because it is not a work day for me, I don't have to worry about whether the top coat is work-appropriate or not.  So, after wearing Hits Speciallita No Olympo Ares, a red holo, I tried Amy's Nail Boutique's Liberty as an accent nail on each ring finger.  Liberty has red, white and blue matte bar and hex glitter, and it has matte stars, too.  I was trying it out to see if I would like the look for July 4th.  I had wanted Nostalgic Lacquer's Pride, but that was limited edition and is not sold anymore.  Liberty has satisfied my desire for a patriotic top coat, though.

Here are some pictures:

You can't really see the red matte glitter, but it's there.

I wanted to show how thick this many layers of polish gets.  I had base coat, one thin and one thick coat of Ares, six layers of top coat (I add one each day), one coat of Liberty, a coat of Gelous, and a coat or two of Seche Vite.

You can see that the glitter lies pretty flat and smooth.

Thank you for reading my blog!


  1. What a cute polish! I love how you layered it over Ares, I've been wanting that gorgeous red!

    1. Thanks! It is a very pretty red. It has to be for me to love it so much even with how much work it takes me to apply it and clean it up!
