Above & Below: With Abandon shown outdoors in the above pictures, no flash. It was just starting to rain, so that's what those drops are. Below pictures are indoors, with a flash.
The next one I'm showing you is called With Abandon. It's a deep brown shimmery glass-flecked shade with the slightest hint of olive. I don't know if this meets the true definition of a glass-flecked polish, but to me it's part glass--part glitter. I'm having one heck of a time categorizing the finishes in this collection and I'm only on the second one! The base color of this is a very dark green-gray. If you look on the inside of the bottle neck, you can often (not always, but often) see a watery looking color that doesn't really look anything like the full bottle color. This can give you a good idea of what the base color is. Also, when you remove a polish, the color on the cotton ball may seem different than the color on your nail. In this case, it was a dark olive-gray shade, just like the separated paint on the inside of the bottle neck. That's what leads me to believe what a base color normally is. The finished color on With Abandon is quite stunning to me. Again, this one looks different indoors than it does outdoors. It is a vary dark shade, but it doesn't look black, by any means. I used three coats on this one and again, it dried fairly quick. The shimmer pieces or glass-flecked pieces, or magical, mystical particles...whatever you wish to call them, are an amber shade. 4 more to go, and so far I'm very taken with this collection.
If you'd like to see the entire collection in the bottles, scroll down a bit to yesterday's post. These should be available at Victoria Nail Supply by the end of this coming week. I'll be trying out one of the 2 shimmer/metallic shades next.
