Another week, another batch of unworns.
Night Prowl may very well be opaque enough on its own, but I was too lazy to find out, so I just did it over a coat of BCC. Pretty!
OPI Russian Navy with NYX Manhattan
Realized I already did this exact manicure, more than a year ago (and got a better picture of it then). The NYX is beautiful but very sheer, and I just don't have patience for it. Has been gifted to my cousin!
I decided to pick this up after S's review, when it was $0.60 at Rite Aid. It's every bit as good as she said! This is two coats, and though it looks quite black here, in the right light, it's clearly a rich wine. Formula was great, very shiny on its own though I did my usual top coat, and barely any cuticle clean-up needed. Now I want more!
NYC Plaza Plumberry with Sally Hansen South Sea Pearl
Another guest-post-inspired mani! I ordered some striping tape and it finally got here, so I decided to play with it over PP. One coat of South Sea Pearl looked gorgeous––I love duochromes! And taping is fun. Will definitely do more.
Reece is sheer, so I thought layering it over Rosy Outlook would be ideal. Unfortunately, it applies unevenly as a topper, and the single coat I did took forever to dry, even with top coat, hence the tip shrinkage/wrinkling. I've put it into the giveaway pile!
I was originally planning to do some taping and/or saran wrap on top of this, but ended up getting lazy and just sticking with two coats of it alone (plus top coat, I mean). Very pretty vamp, especially in the sun! Mm, shimmer.
And just for fun, some random pictures from recently:
