OPI Big Apple Red + Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in Set The Stage

Hey all :) I painted my nails yesterday after sooooooooo long!
Ok a couple of weeks at least because my nails were very brittle after I removed my previous nail colour and I wanted to condition them even though they were in a very cui state D: ('cui' means bad condition in Singlish lol!)
My toenails are in even worse shape hence still letting them recover to their former glory haha!
I trimmed my nails down to the bare minimum because my nails were breaking and all.
Usually do that only when my nails started to crack about once every 2-3 months and I knew I couldn't prolong the length of the nails anymore.
So had to go 'naked' literally with my nails for 2 weeks and that's like very rare for me because I love my polishes!
Couldn't tahan ('tahan' means endure in Singlish) it yesterday and decided to paint them even though they are very short right now.
Went with a simple and bright red colour - OPI Big Apple Red NL N25Β - because red is my favourite colour!
Layered Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in Set The Stage because I wanted to layer some glitter over the red colour.
This glitter polish is one of the few Sally Hansen polishes I own and is a polish with large and small gold glitter in a clear base.
Very pretty although more glitter would have been better!
Had to literally 'fish' out the glitter to pack onto my nails else the glitter wouldn't show up.

2 coats of red and..... alot of glitter which I had trouble taking it out of the bottle lol
This OPI polish is one of my favourite reds and goes on smoothly.
I had no trouble putting it onto my nails and could have made do with 1 coat but I'm the sort who likes to put on a minimum of 2 coats just to be safe haha!
OCD la, cannot help it.
Base coat from Poshe, top coat from Seche Vite.
Ok that's all folks, till the next manicure adventure!
