Tricks Of Smoke And Ashes
My base color is China Glaze Smoke And Ashes (Capitol Colours Collection), a blackened polish with lots of emerald and blue glass fleck shimmer. Smoke And Ashes is very pigmented, I only used one coat and it was completely opaque. No need for a second coat with this one.
On top of Smoke And Ashes I added one coat of Happy Hands Tricks Are Things A Whore Does For Money... Or Candy, a clear base filled with small silver hexes, medium silver holographic hexes, gold squares and gold stars.
The glitters spread very easily, no dabbing needed. The gold stars weren't really "jumping ot of the bottle", but I got five of them on my nails. I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top topcoat, and the only glitters I could still feel were the stars.
Happy Hands polishes are sold on Etsy , at their own shop and at Harlow & Co.
Tricks... seems to be discontinued.
