Evolution of a Mani

Hi everyone! How's Thursday treating you? The weather is pretty blah here today, but I'm wearing a new dress, so I'm in a good mood;] Also, I have on Essie Ruby Slippers and it's making me happy everytime I look at it. I need to show you all this mani asap. But for today, I have a mani I wore last week. It started off as me wanting to franken a light taupey purple [which I named Puzzlement] and then I thought "Woah, this kinda reminds me of the base color for Sally Hansen Mystic Lilac. So I wanted an amped up version of ML so I put flakies! Then more flakies! Then a glitter! Then a shimmer! So it's an involved mani, but I loved it a lot. I wore it for quite a while actually! It was strange for me haha. Here it is:

2 coats of Puzzlement [so named bc of it's tendency to change color in different lighting]... 1 coat of HITS Jazz... 1 coat of Finger Paints Motley... 1 coat of Lynnderella Connect the Dots... 1 final coat of Pure Ice Heart Breaker!!

Whew! For those keeping count, that's 6 layers of polish, plus base coat and top coat. But it dried pretty fast, so no complaints:]

What do you think? Fugly or pretty? Or pretty-ugly? haha
