Wheel K4: Blue Violet Shimmers

1. Orly Delilacful (2 coats) [oh hi, brushstrokes]
2. Essence Blossoms Forget Me Not (2) [barely a shimmer]
3. Essie Smooth Sailing (3) [love the little pops of pink and turquoise in the shimmer]
4. Sephora by OPI Underwater Fantasy (4)
5. China Glaze Rainstorm (4) [probably would look better with a base color underneath]
6. OPI Glow-Ink the Dark (4) [also would benefit from underwear—I didn't get any photos of this glowing in the dark; if I recall correctly, it glows green]
7. Orly Veriwinkle (4) [more brushstrokes; that's what the fashion was at the time, I guess]
8. Revlon Not So Blueberry (3) [pretty shimmer]
9. Revlon Not So Blueberry (3) [re-release version; slightly darker than first release, but still has pretty shimmer]
10. OPI Sahara Sapphire (2) [it wasn't just Orly with the brushstrokes back then]
11. Wet 'n' Wild Rock Solid Blue Amethyst (3) [slight duochrome effect]
12. BB Couture for Men Dinner Jacket (2)
13. Revlon Streetwear Splash (2)
14. Revlon Streetwear Conniving (2)
15. Quirius Paris Night (1)
16. Studio M Lust (3) [bottle somehow fooled me into thinking it was darker]
17. Joe Fresh Grape (2)
18. NK Midnight Blue (3)
19. Sally Hansen HD Hi-Definition Laser (3) [hint of duochrome]
20. Orly Royal Velvet (2) [so rich looking; this one has a hint of duochrome, too]

  7. I've been going back and forth on getting Orly Royal Velvet every time I'm in the beauty supply shop. When the nail wheel image first popped up, my eyes went directly to #20 and I said "I MUST HAVE THAT!" Well... I guess that settles it, then! lol!


Thank you for reading and commenting! I greatly appreciate knowing I'm not just talking to myself here. :) I'm moderating most comments now due to the spate of spammers who claim to be looking for sexy times.
