SoFlaJo Blue Martini over Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips in Teal with It

I didn't want to take off my Teal with It nail polish strips (reviewed here), even though I had messed them up by using Orly Smudge Fixer on them.  They still looked pretty from far away.  So, I topped the strips with SoFlaJo's Blue Martini, a glitter top coat that I reviewed here.  Definitely click through to see how pretty it looks over a black creme.  I love the shimmer in it, and I love the holo and the blue glitter and the diamond glitter!  There is short bar glitter in Blue Martini, and although I usually don't like large bar glitter, I did like the short bar glitter in Blue Martini.

The Teal with It strips had quite a bit of wear before I topped them with Blue Martini, so you'll see lots of wear in the pictures, especially where I may have tried to clean up around my cuticles only to remove the polish from Teal with It which then seemed to reveal sticker backing.  In the pictures below, I added a coat of Gelous and then a coat of Seche Vite, and the mani was very smooth, and you couldn't feel the glitter.  The strips lasted the full week that I usually take to redo my manis.

You can see the shimmer from Teal with It combined with the very similar colored shimmer from Blue Martini.

    1. Hi Britney!!! Thank you so much for commenting! It makes me so happy when I get comments. I get an e-mail each time someone comments, and I reply to all comments, although often a day or two later, depending on work and stuff. Oftentimes I'll be having a tough day, and I get a blog comment, and it just makes my day. :-)
