Mix on a palette or in a dish, no more than 30% additive / glitter mix ratio with Brisa Lite Smoothing Gel xx

That blue is stunning! Am I right that it's Midnight tide additive mixed into clear Brisa Lite Smoothing Gel?
Yep! Lush isn't it! 😍 xx

What always puts me off about this is that I don't know how much gel to put on my palette and I don't want to waste any! How do you know?? Xx

The set I did above was 2 "blobs" using my CND Spatula, then 30% additive. If you were doing a full set (2 layers each hand) I'd probably do 3 "blobs".

No, it would either go under a Shellac service for added strength, or you can use as above mixed with additives (using BL base coat and finishing with BL Top Coat) xx

So would you still use bl top coat over the nails with the cream puff background?
And why would you choose to mix the additives with the bl smoothing gel as opposed to say clearly pink or top coat? Is there any difference? X

I used Shellac Top Coat over the nail with the Cream Puff base.

I'm not sure that you can "mix" the same ratio with Shellac as you can Brisa Lite Smoothing, so I wouldn't use that method. It is Smoothing "Gel" so mixing up to 30% additive with it is fine and gives good coverage xx
