NOTD: Essie Spun in Luxe

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

Now that the little meltdown I told you about yesterday when Lunar New Year hit had a chance to calm down, let things go back to normal, shall we? :)

The fifth colour I have to show you from Essie Cashmere Matte 2015 collection is Spun in Luxe, a matte black with blue shimmers.

This is just one coat of Spun in Luxe, without a top coat. I appreciate the opacity and pigmentation of the matte black base.

Those amazing shimmers you see in the bottle, however, only slightly transfer to the nails, not the same intensity unfortunately.

Mind you, at the right angle, the blue shimmers are beautiful and I still pretty enjoy Spun in Luxe, but that sheen is not as strong as that in Comfy in Cashmere and Coat Couture, my two favorite shades in the collection.

Since it is a matte black, my favorite way to wear Spun in Luxe is, you guess it, as a base for a glass fleck/ flakie or duochrome polish. See an example below :)

The collection is out now, so track it down to grab a bottle (or a few). You will not regret it!

Shout out to OPI Girl Color, another "mysterious" OPI shades I found at Dollarama.

Applied on top of Spun in Luxe, Girl Color shows off its strong blue and green shimmers. A good pairing right? I layered it on a little thicker on the middle finger to enhance the milky pinky beige base too.

And if you wonder why Girl Color is mysterious, follow the link above to read more. It is the rebottled version of Nicole by OPI Kim-pletely in Love from the Kardashian Kolors collection (Holiday 2011).

Have a good Thursday guys. We have more snow coming lol..
