So I get to wear whatever polish I want. Because it is, after all, a birthday and because I'll be watching Kooza today (and so I'm not completely behind on the times), I decided to wear OPI Mad as a Hatter over my previous manicure, Butter London's Billy No Mates.
And then this happened:
It just looked really good alternating like that. :)
MAAH (if you didn't know) is a limited edition OPI from the Alice in Wonderland promotion series. It's a clear polish diffused with multicolored glitter--primarily silver and purple, with green, orange, and gold mixed in, I think. It's not ridiculously shiny. I own more glitters that are far more sparkly than this one, but I enjoy it. I think part of the reason why it looks that way is because the glint given off by the polish is entirely silver... not multi-colored.
One blurry, one side-clear: that was about as non-insane as my camera went when it was MAAH.
It's opaque in three thin coats, two if the way you coat is slightly thicker. I also got better glitter distribution the flatter I laid the brush against the nail. Application is... okay, as far as I'm concerned. I'm not too wild about the OPI pro-wide brush, but my nails are insanely tiny.
I like how from far off, it looks like I've used some kind of silver-purple against Billy No Mates (a polish I like the more I use it... funny, cause I hated its guts before but I quite like it now). : )
Admittedly, it also reminds me of the paper topic that I'm writing about right now, which is due tomorrow...
Oh, one last thing: two coats of topcoat for good gloss. Otherwise, your polish remains gritty.
