For Readers who are just getting to know me...Up until a year and a few months ago, the only colors I'd wear on my nails were; blacks, charcoal, deep russets, and deep purples. I have my Peers in the Blogsphere to thank for my foray into the world of color- not only where nails are concerned, but in my closet as well!
Black is no longer the *only* color I feel comfortable wearing.
Case in point was my mani over the weekend- Orly First Kiss. Who would have thought I'd ever wear a color like this- and love it? Much like OPI Coney Island Cotton Candy, to which Orly First Kiss is an almost dead on dupe for, this type of color is the perfect foil to all the make-up and Glam I wear. Since understated/safe are not part of my repertoire, I'm going to call this type of color a "neutralizer"...because that's what it does for me- mood included.
If I had to make a choice between the two, I'd pick Orly First Kiss. It went on a bit less streaky, and being sheerer than the OPI, it has an ethereal quality that I'm totally drawn to. I adore this color on me- especially with my all time favorite iridescent, ultra fine, glitter overlay, Love My Nails Dazzling. The glitter particles in this polish are really different from anything in my stash. They stay sparkley and dimensional at all angles...and it was only $.93 at my Walmart. Gotta love that!
Anyway, I *really* don't want to remove this mani. I'm torn between stamping skulls, roses and barbed wire on this or removing.
Something very cool...
