I Love Duo Chromes

Today I am very excited to show you a polish from the Victorious 4pc nail polish kit I purchased in the last couple weeks. (Click here to see the haul post.) These polishes came without names so I named the polish featured in this post as "Oil Slick" which I think you will find is quite appropriate. I layered 1 coat of Oil Slick over 2 coats of Wet'n'Wild's Everybody Hates Chris. Maybe next time I will try two coats and see what happens.

This is the first time I have shown a duo chrome on my blog and what a beauty she is. I couldn't decide which photo's to post so you get to see them all. Every photo shows something beautiful about this polish.

Love this one.

... and this one ...

This photo was a complete accident & it looks like crap, I know, but the green flash on the nail is glowing!

... can't forget this one!

...aaaaand this one, too.

Wow, right? The last two photo's are my swatches of Ebony Hates Chris, just for good measure. I'm trying to post swatches of every polish I own (432 bottles and counting!) so I had to include them, even though they don't compare to Oil Slick.

I feel like these photo's turned out really nicely; the lighting, etc. I'm in no way a professional photographer but it seems as though you can fake it by having nice lighting. (The background in my photo's is just my bedroom wall which is an off white and the way the lighting was done it made it look like a backdrop of some sort ... Or maybe that's just me?)

I am very impressed with how strong the purple to green flash shows up, especially on camera. I could stare at my nails all day long. Duo chromes get major love from me, especially if they are darker, vampy ones. *stares wistfully at nails*

Quick note: my poll (over on the left now) is ending soon. Please go vote before it ends! Thank you.
