I know you're thinking to yourself - that doesn't look pink. But the camera is playing tricks on your eyes. May I introduce Orly Passion Fruit, which is a bright neon coral jelly. It actually looks more pink in the bottle than the nail - once you get it on, it leans a little more orange.
Passion Fruit applied very nicely and dried fast. I didn't have any issues with streaking, dragging or cuticle pooling. I initially was going to do 2 coats, but realized I still had VNL so I went ahead and added a third coat. As I mentioned, Passion Fruit dries with a jelly type finish so I topped it with SV for some shine.
I decided today was the day I wanted to try out my Color Club Copy Coats scented topcoats. I used the pink one - named Mimic - because I have read elsewhere that these topcoats; although only slightly tinted, can cause mimimal color shifts in your base color. I have to say that I really enjoyed the scent of Mimic. I can't comment on what perfume it smells like, because I'm not a perfume connoisseur, but the company information says it contains blackberry, damask rose and sandalwood. I was sniffing my nails all evening. And I love the bottles - little squat square bottles with colored scented goodness in them!
This morning I applied a fauxnad over the base color using plate M72 and a Sally Hansen gold chrome pen. I love these for stamping - great pigmented color!
What do you think of this fauxnad? I've been really uninspired lately but I'm really liking this one!
