This client wanted a more opaque colour using Strawberry Smoothie Shellac. For this slightly deeper colour, I used a base later of Rose Bud, topped with Strawberry Smoothie. This hid the whites of the free edge, and looked slightly deeper.
These nails were for a member of a wedding party wearing a deep navy dress, which looked really pretty, rather than having a matching deep colour nail, and perfect for the summer.
Have you tried layering Shellac? What colour combinations do you like?
