Pride Must Suffer Pain is a turquoise (warm) to purple (cool) thermal with a faint red glow, holographic scattering and aqua/green shifting flakes. Femme Fatale has kept the based a little more sheer than usual so that the flakes layer up nicely upon several coats.
This colour is from a collection inspired by The Little Mermaid, by Hans Christian Andersen (1836)
“Well, now, you are grown up,” said the old dowager, her grandmother; “so you must let me adorn you like your other sisters;” and she placed a wreath of white lilies in her hair, and every flower leaf was half a pearl. Then the old lady ordered eight great oysters to attach themselves to the tail of the princess to show her high rank.
“But they hurt me so,” said the little mermaid.
“Pride must suffer pain,” replied the old lady
Apply quality base coat such as Girly Bits Stick with me, Smooth Move or a peel off glitter base coat such as Dance Legend Glitter Base if you’re using a glitter. Make sure you apply the polish in thin, even coats across the nail allowing each layer to dry properly before applying the next. Remember to wrap the free edge (or tip) of the nail to encourage a reduction of shrinkage and longer wear without chipping.
Some Femme Fatale sheer polishes are best suited for layering over a base colour – however most will be opaque in 2-3 coats. Once you have completed your application, seal with a quality glossy top coat such as Girly Bits Glitter Glaze or What A Rush for that water-smooth shine.
