QRS Swatches of The Arabian Nights


Above & Below: The Arabian Nights, a dark charcoal based multi-colored glitter. And of course with a matte top coat, because I can't seem to stop doing that! Doesn't it remind you of a formica counter top with the matte coat?
For all of you glitter lovers, this one's for you! It has a dark charcoal base color, that appears almost black once applied. It is filled with small multi-colored glitter that in certain lighting is holographic (not the polish, the glitter), changing from silver to red to blue as your fingers move. This is 2 coats and if I were to wear it for any length of time, I'd be satisfied with 2 coats, although I sloppily missed a spot on the end of my middle and index fingers in these pictures. I like that this polish has a base color that actually transfers to the nail, rather than a very sheer base color that takes many coats to achieve opaqueness.I imagine it would work well as a one coat top coat over another dark shade, also. The next one I'll share with you today is Red Veil.

  4. Love it, love it. Reminds me of NYX Polish Asphalt. These polishes are spectacular! When matted it does look like an old Formica counter in a beatnicks house. I'm cracking up.
