I'm finally back at home after a grueling finals week. After some vigorous packing, moving all my things out, a 3 hour drive back home, and a good night's sleep- I'm up for some major posting. I also have so many polishes to show you! I had a lot of polish packages sent home, just in case they didn't come to my dorm before I moved out. I have a giveaway I won, a swap package, and a Ozotics I purchased waiting to be swatched. That's 18 polishes in all, not including the ones I purchased in store, and I still have the 10 polishes I recently won from another giveaway on its way to me. It's going to be a great month! :)
And here's finally the long awaited galaxy nails post. Here's the un-cropped pic from the teaser.
If you guessed Nfu Oh, you were right! Here's what I did, I applied two coats of Sinful Colors Black on Black as my base. Then I applied 2 thin coats of Sinful Colors Hottie. Hottie is a glitter polish with a clear blue base. Actually when I purchased it, my bf said it's like your Nfu Oh, at which I vehemently shook my head and said, "No way! Nfu Oh is a flakie! This is glitter." He probably thought I was crazy, but that gave me the idea of pairing them together. First here's a pic with just Hottie over black.
I think Hottie has been compared a lot to OPI Last Friday Night, but I'm not sure if they are dupes. This had a lot of blue/green and orange/gold glitter. There's a lot of glitter, so actually one thick coat should be enough. I just used a thin second coat to get some of the edges I missed. You should make sure the black has been covered sufficiently. Next, I added a coat of Nfu Oh #53. The dark blue glitter in the polish really added depth and a pretty blue flash. The flakies also added red and pink into the mass of colors. Finally, I finished off with two coats of Seche Vite for extra shiny smoothness. One coat is fine- it won't be bumpy, but the second coat gives it a glassy finish.
And since I talked a lot, I will now picture spam you. I honestly couldn't pick pics, so I apologize if you feel they're all the same. -_-
