If You Like It Then You Shoulda Put a Fish On It

Not sure if I like it all that much but I put a fish on it anyway.

Was shattered, tired and knackered all at the same time, yet unable to sleep and thought that layering various bluey polishes at two in the morning might produce something nice and soothing. 

First coat was La Femme Blue Cream (swatched here) which is a nice enough pale blue. Good pigmentation, shame about the formula but it is dirt cheap.

Second coat was Laura Paige 64 Limited Edition, a shimmering blue with iridescent sparkles. Looks lovely in the bottle but is impossibly sheer when worn on it's own. It would be badass over black. Not so good over the Blue Cream, though, the iridescent sparkle didn't show up :(

Third coat was Sinful Colors Pearl Habour, a glittery polish with blue interference glitter that I'm a bit loved up with. Shows up well IRL but didn't want to co-operate for the camera.

Then I put a fish on it. Not sure why.

It's OK and all that, but there's something about it that I'm just not sure about. Did mattify it to see if there was any improvement but it just ended up looking like that old lino you get in 80s hospitals, all pale blue with little twinkles that seem out of place.

Plugs of the day were glittery blue thingies, very cheap but very cheerful. Prefer these to the polish job.
