Robyn's coats got larger and started to flop over, whereas mine got smaller each coat.
I'm just going to cut to the chase and address some questions and comments that people will probably have. This also includes a removal video:
Exactly 2 years ago today I did the 53 coats of polish. So we thought this would be fun. It was also an excuse to get together and drink on a Friday night.
"What a waste"
1)Because we used so many we generally used polish that was inexpensive, free, on it's last legs or that we just didn't like. The last time I did 53 coats the total retail value of polish used came to around $7 USD, and that time I even used stuff like Chanel and Lippmann. Trust me this did not break the bank.
2)Let's be real. Like it or not when you are a polish collector waste kind of goes hand and hand with it. The chances you will use up all the polish in your bottles is slim to none. So why not have some crazy fun ever once in a while. Especially with polishes that are almost done or never get love because you just don't wear them often.
3)Last time I checked these weren't your polishes or your money. There's so many things in the polish community that can be considered wasteful or irresponsible, but it's not my stuff so who am I to judge.
How long did it take?
5 hours on and off.
Did it dry?
How long did it take to remove?
About 30 seconds. Removed most of it with a dry tissue, and any excess with remover.
Let's all use our earth logic. 100/101 coats of a polish that will probably never fully dry. This is clearly my fancy night out manicure of choice.
Will you try this again?
Probably not. Getting to 53 coats was easy. Then around 65 the fumes start to hit you. By 85 you start feeling iffy. By the end you don't ever want to see polish again and you look like this:
Do you Regret it?
