I’ve been diversifying a bit with the topics of my posts, but I still have a handful of nail polish swatches to show you, so I gotta get on it! I should be receiving my package from Nail Polish Canada any day now, so I’ll be on a swatchapalooza then! I can’t wait!!
Without further ado (because really…I think I ramble too much), please let me present to you the polish ‘Blackout’ from Icing’s nail polish line (Icing being Claire’s little sister I think):
I layered two coats of Blackout over OPI’s Diva of Geneva , as this polish is fairly thin and really needs some underwear first. You could get enough coverage after three coats, but not the same depth. I saw a post once where they layered this over China Glaze Ruby Slippers, and is was awesome. However, I was wearing a specific outfit with pink and wanted it layered over pink to coordinate. You can’t really tell but I would know. And I’m anal like that.
Cheap-y polish, $5.49 or something at Icing (sad that $5.49 seems like a steal now, after the price I’ve paid for some polishes!), and applies well with no real issues aside from the sheerness – which is sort of a given as this polish is pretty much a jelly. The holo shimmer in this is actually fairly apparent without any particular lighting (though it was tough to capture in photos), which is a plus. This isn’t a polish I wear often, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate it or or that it’ll go up for swap; sometimes there are *those* polishes that you really like but you just need the right occasion – this is one of those. Just the way it is, folks
I hope everyone is getting into the holiday spirit and enjoying all that the season brings! Don’t let all the hulabaloo get to you – remember what it’s all about – the rum ‘n eggnog! LOL ~kidding!~ Really though, I hope no one is stressing themselves out, it’s not worth it and it taints the beauty of this time of year!
