Below: Rendez-Blue on it's own, 3 coats. Pretty yes, but nothing special.
Below: Forgive me, I couldn't stop taking pictures of this beauty!
Below: Midnight Affair is very nice all by itself, 2 coats.
Yesterday I showed you Revlon Dark Pleasures in Talk Dirty and while I still had them out, I thought I'd show you a few more. Midnight Affair is a beautiful deep navy blue with shimmer and it only took 2 coats to be completely opaque. I really think this is a nice navy shimmer polish. I was going to clean it off and show you Rendez-Blue, a pale robin egg blue duo chrome that flashes pink and violet, but I recall the last time I wore it that it takes at least 4 coats before it looks decent, so I tried 2 coats over the Midnight affair and it completely transformed it into a shimmery violet-gold-absolutely beautiful-can't take my eyes of of it-stunning polish! When I put the first streak of color on, I could not believe the look. These pictures pale in comparison to just how lovely it really is. It makes me wonder how it would transform so many other shades of polish, or if I just got lucky with this combination.
I keep hearing the lyrics in my head to the old Frankie Valli song, 'Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You' every time I think about this polish combination:
♪♪♪ Pardon the way that I stare. There's nothing else to compare. The sight of you leaves me weak. There are no words left to speak. But if you feel like I feel, please let me know that it's real. You're just too good to be true. Can't take my eyes off you ♪♪♪
It's not like it's my husband or George Clooney, or a big diamond, or even one of Nixxy's MWCILTRMND. It's only a nail polish...but still, I think I'm in love (isn't that part of a song lyric too?).
