Sometimes it’s worth posting base color + topper separately; often it’s not. This is that second kind.
Base coat (which is nice on its own, I mean, I wore it), is Sally Hansen Celeb City:
photograph! It’s no Push’n’Shove,* but it’s a perfectly nice metallic.
Pretty color, nice and even in two coats. It’s shiny but maayyybe the glitters are too coarse to call it a foil? Nah, foil. (I think I’m going to do a post on all these
made-up domain specific words.)
Later, topped with Sinful Colors Queen of Beauty:
|Do I need to say which is which? No, I do not. Because the
indoor photos are always the ones where I’m in last-stage jaundice.
My camera haaaates this. It took a while to get two even borderline decent photos, I mean, for heaven’s sake. Go look at KittyPNB’s swatches if you care, she has an actual camera. 😛
But basically, it looks like little disco balls. Just straight-up silver glitter. This is 4 [!] coats. I doubt it would be opaque without Celeb City undies, but it was pretty at every stage.
As a side note… who comes up with these names? Some of them are nicely descriptive (Champagne Toast), some are just eh (like, Celeb City, once I see the polish I can make some connection), some of them are straight-up meaningless (Cassie, Hot Wired), and some of them are just weird and misleading (Pull Over is an orange-ish yellow). It’s like paint samples, which are also named by people tripping so hard they can taste colors.

So now we know what color surreality, quintessent..i…ality? .. and elegance are.
