3 coats and a top coat
Genevieve is labeled as a deep rich cool leather grey color, although it actually looks more like a deep blue grey color in my opinion. And the photos will show it. The first coat will be a little alarming as it coats on very sheer. However, with patience and a couple of more coats, the formula actually works in a way where it becomes very opaque after the third coat. So use thin layers to build up your color.

Aubrey is a medium mauve cream. I think Aubrey and Madeline would pair nicely together in a simple nail art. Aubrey also coated well in two coats so I could easily wear this polish quickly. A great medium tone for this autumn season.

I only purchased a couple of polishes from Zoya’s Naturel Deux Collection. Just the ones that I knew I’d most likely wear. And Madeline was a lovely shade that went well with my skin tone. It’s described as a muted rose cream. It went on smoothly and covered in only two coats. I’m a definite fan of Madeline. Not only that, it’s also my daughter’s name!
Happy Halloween everyone! To celebrate, I painted Coraline. I was almost going to dress up as her for Halloween since I already have a cheese-whiz yellow rain coat, but I’m missing the yellow rainboots and a blue wig. Maybe next year
I used ILNP Black Orchid, a beautiful plum holographic as my base and complimented it with piCture pOlish Honey Dew, a bright mint green. Orange really doesn’t suit my skin tone, so I try to find alternatives to painting Halloween themed looks without using orange too much.
With Halloween just around the corner I decided to paint Jack Skellington from Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas last weekend. Finally had some time this weekend to pull the photos off my camera to post.
He glows in the dark using Julep Casper layered over a coat of white nail polish. The glow looks better the longer you let it charge under the light. It’s been kind of funny going to bed these last few nights and seeing the skeleton and the moon glow on my nails. Unfortunately I didn’t capture a really good photo of the glow before I chipped these. Maybe next time, I will have a black light ready! In the meantime, you’ll just have to imagine a yellow-y light green glow.
