I was so excited to tell you all about the polishes (below the pictures) that I nearly forgot to write an intro, haha. Uhhh, let's just look at the nails, okay? I'm too excited to share this with you to chat anymore ... ;)
China Glaze in Ruby Deer, 2 coats - no top coat
Barielle Elle's Spell, 2 coats over top of Ruby Deer
OPI Heart of Gold, 2 coats over Elle's Spell & Ruby Deer
Ruby Deer, could you be any more perfect? Two coats needed for flawless red goodness. Application was smooth and dreamy. High shine finish with no topcoat.
Elle's Spell, wow. This is my favourite (and only) red flakie polish and looked great over Ruby Deer. I didn't want to waste it by trying to build it up to opacity on its own. No complaints in regards to application, it was great.
Heart of Gold, where have you been all my life? I didn't pick up As Gold As It Gets from Essie's new Luxeeffects collection but I'm not sure I need it when I own the beauty that is Heart of Gold. (Okay, who am I kidding, a mini-flakie? Yes, I need you. Please don't be offended by my "you're not needed comment" ;) Haha.) Anyway, Heart of Gold is a beautiful gold shimmer polish in a pale, sheer gold base. It is meant as a layering polish and layer, I did! Wow.
All in all, this has awesome full-mani potential. Sadly, I only did the 4 nails you see pictured and was very nearly heart broken to have to remove it. Oh well, I'm sure I will do this again, it was that good. Mr.Polish considers it "magnificent" and that's sayin' something, folks!
What polishes have you layered recently?
