1. Fair skin/cool toned (I think?)
2. I’ve only tried one but I love it! Urban Decay’s Primer Potion
3. I’ve tried a few, and right now I’m liking Out The Door’s top coat. Seche Vite got too thick way too fast, and i wasn’t too keen on the shrinkage.
4. I use Beauty Secrets Acetone polish remover. It’s cheap and works pretty well. The smell isn’t too bad either.
