Before finalizing the painting, I decided to scrub off those lunulas and redo them with a different medium. (I can be a little OCD at times, but I'm much happier with how the nails look now.) Once all the nails were set, it was time for the gloss.
Air Dry Gloss Vanish looks and smells a lot like glue. I haven't tested its adhesive properties, so the jury is still out on whether or not it actually is glue. Whatever it is, after just a few coats of it, I have beautifully shiny nails, moist-looking lips, and even a little moisture in the nose. This is truly the last painting step. Time for interim reviews!
