Half and Half

I thought I'd do a quick post about the nail polish I'm wearing today.
I quickly did this last night so I didn't really have time to worry about my cuticles or clean up. Please ignore those two issues.

First, I used Nicole by OPI in Light a Candle as a base, then I added L.A. Colors Serenity to the top half of the nail. To conceal the line where the two meet I used L.A. Color's Art Deco in Gold Glitter for the horizontal stripe.
See the bottom of this post for a small review of each polish.



L.A. Colors Serenity- This is a nice taupe color with a hint of pink. It has tiny gold shimmers in it, but I failed to capture it in my pictures. This color is opaque with just one coat.

Nicole by OPI Light a Candle- A metallic lavender purple. It is incredibly opaque with just one coat and it dries super fast. It does leave a little bit of a streaky finish, but it's too pretty to pass up, so I don't mind.


Art Deco Gold Glitter- A glittery gold nail art polish that is a bit closer to yellow than a true gold. I went over the stripe twice to get it opaque.

I'm very happy with this manicure, and can I say that it looks much better in person? The pictures do not do it any justice. In person, the minor mistakes are not nearly as obvious.

Maybe I'll take my pictures in the daytime from now on. I'll probably end up re-taking these pictures in the morning.
