Have you ever bought nail polish that looked gorgeous in the bottle but looks totally different when applied to your nails?
This Russian Navy annoys me whenever I look at it. Lol.
While rummaging tru a box filled with discounted OPIs, it saw this extremely beautiful mystical purple nail polish which I loved! Without looking at it's name, I immediately grabbed and paid for the nail polish.
Mana tau (Malaysian slang for 'who knew'. Lol.) the nail polish was some kinda weird navy blue which I didn't like one bit. The gorgeous red and purple micro shimmer did not show up one bit!
Boy, was I annoyed!
Here's a picture of a thin layer of polish swatched on a piece of paper and held against the sun.
The poor polish laid unused for a year till I decided to use it and give it a twist to suit my liking.
I layered my polish.
Ever tried that?
I painted a layer of MAC Nocturnelle, which is basically a cream black, as the base and applied a thin layer of OPI Russian Navy on top.
It turned out to be a really pretty nail colour which appeared black, navy blue and purple under different lights! I was really happy with it! =D
I also applied Ulta3's Silver Glitter for gradient tips, just to add some pizzaz. Hehe.
Have you ever purchased a nail polish which you didn't like at all?
