Now onto the nail polishes...
I was playing around with the sheerer OPI polishes in my collection, Breathe Life and Happy Anniversary. Both require about 4-5 coats (and lots of drying time) to achieve what it looks like in the bottle. I was trying to cut down on the coats while maintaining the overall appearance.
Here are some quick swatches of two coats of each polish just to show how sheer they are. Breathe life is on the left, Happy Anniversary is on the right. They have a similar look to them when lightly swatched. Breathe Life is pearly with a blue green glow, Happy Anniversary is a shimmery silver microglitter.
I ended up with one coat of Happy Anniversary over one coat of Breathe Life to cut down on the coats and drying time. Breathe Life compliments Happy Anniversary really well, it succesfully brought out the pretty microglitter.
Readers, what are your thoughts on sheer polishes? Do you normally just put up with the extra coats and drying time?
