I really liked the color of this Pixel Byte My Lip color, but it bubbled like all get out.  I put two coats on, ran into some trouble so buffed it out, put another coat on and there were *still* these little bubbles everywhere.  A little aggravated, I added some triangle/diamond shapes near the top using the Migi pens (note: not so great for corners/lines, but does well to fill shapes carefully).  It saved it a little, and honestly you can’t really see the bubbling under the right light or from a distance… but it’s there.

    Hate bubbling! I have one Pixel polish but haven’t even tried it yet. This is pretty, though – even with the bubbles.

    These are really great!! Hope I didn’t do anything to offend you-I have that effect on people sometimes. I’m sorry if I did.

    Ya know maybe it is the Pixel, I think I’ve only used these deep colored ones as accents and not on a full nail…. I dunno, I’ll have to try it again — but thanks for the love!

    And Fingers, we could not be mo’ better if you tried, trufax! You have zero to apologize for, I’m the jerk that fell off the internets :-D
