Nails of the Week #71: Dots and Things

I wanted to try some new polishes so I just grabbed a mixture from my collection and put it together. I'll admit I'm not a fan of this look, it's sloppy and just doesn't look right. Also the topper that I'm using, I have it in several shades and I have yet to have a good experience with them. No wonder those particular polishes were found heavily discounted at Marshall's, they just aren't good. Anyways, let's still look at what I used.

For the base coat I used Essie in Good as Gold which is this nice molten gold. It's gorgeous but the color was very difficult to work with. There was a lot of streaking which is common for metallic polishes and additional coats just made it worse. I just couldn't get a smooth application of it. That's what prompted me to throw the topper, with the flat hexagonal pieces. I used Formula X in Crash which is the sky blue one and Formula X in Mind Blowing for the yellow ones. This just looks bad and it won't be something I do again..ever.
