Color Secrets Romeo & Juliet with Appliques

I have another Color Secret polish to share....Romeo & Juliet.  

Romeo & Juliet is a dark, rose metallic polish. 

I applied two coat.  The formula is very good but you need to be careful with your brushstrokes...seeing that it is a metallic.

Check out the shimmer when it catches the sun!

I was also sent some nail appliques and thought it would be fun to do something different.

I thought these would look wonderful with Romeo & Juliet.  However, I didn't want to do full nail application....this is where things went wrong.

These appliques were different than ones that I had used in the past.  They are a tad thicker and have added glitter.

I thought that I would just trim them down and do a half nail application...didn't work.  As soon as I cut the applique the glitter started to fall off because I ruined the seal.

Because the appliques are thicker they stood up on the nail creating a shelf.

I tried to correct things with the addition of a top coat but I just made it worse.

If you are going to play around with these appliques don't do what I did!  Leave them alone!  They would work wonderfully as an accent nail or a full mani for a special occasion!

You can purchase Romeo & Juliet for $2.99 and the Appliques for $5.99 at Color Secrets.


  1. Pretty polish color! The nail appliques look nice but too bad they didn't work this way.
