Products I used:
Revlon ColorStay Base Coat 
Covergirl Outlast stay brilliant Show Stopper

I really like how it came out and really like sugar cane. I also liked show stopper because it a nice sliver which is opaque in two coats.

without flash inside lighting

Products I used:
Loreal One Stop Base Coat

I really like this combo with these two blue nail polishes. I really love Hot Spot its a pretty navy blue with blue shimmers which you can't see in the photos. It has a really good formula too.
