NOTD: Layering NfuOh over My Milkyway over Royal Velvet


Well, initially I had planned to post this at the weekend but then my internet connection at home broke down for some unknown reason and I had to postpone this. My internet still isn't working but I hope the company can solve the problem soon. Yet I found the opportunity to go online so I can finally show you this mani I wore last weekend!

As you may have noticed I bought a whole lot of new polishes and most of them are still waiting to be worn. So I wanted to do some layering to reduce the pile of untrieds in my stash :) And I have to warn you that this is a picture heavy post because the finish looked different every time the light and angle changes. You can click all the pictures to enlarge them.

I started with two coats Orly Royal Velvet from their Precious Spring collection 2011. It is a deep navy blue/purple duochrome with a very nice shimmer! I also like this color worn solo a lot! Sorry for the messy application but I took photos of this before cleanup. I just had to show you this polish on its own.

I then added one coat of Catrice My Milkyway from their recent Out of Space limited edition. The cap says "color changing topcoat". In fact it is a milky white base with iridescent blue/pink shimmer particles. Indeed it changes the base color a lot and I wouldn't use it as a topcoat since it is pretty opaque even with one thin coat. But see for yourself how it adds some more sparkles to the base polish.

So to finalize my layering I added two coats of NfuOh Shiny Opal No.51. This one has a sheer purple jelly base with tons of multichrome flakies of various sizes in it. Depending on the angle those flakies flash blue, green, orange or red. I just love these polishes! So now here's the final result of my layering attempt. Pretty, huh?! The last photo was taken with a flash while all the others were indoors in natural light.

That is all for today. Now I will finally build up the Helmer I bought already two weeks ago and then my stash will finally move into its new home :D
Have a great day!
