Nail of the Day:
Rimmel Last Finish Pro in Black Satin and
OPI Rainbow Connection
Today I bring to you a fun little combination I came up with the other night. I recently purchased my first bottle of completely black nail polish. WOAH. Really? Yes. Really.
I've never been much of a black and neutral nail polish kinda girl. In my book, the brighter and more obnoxious, the better. At least when it comes to my nails. So it's no surprise that when I attempted to paint my nails plain black the other night, my fiancé glanced at them with a look of surprise and a hint of disgust.
He never sees me with non-bright nails! I just had to add some color.
And so, this combination was born.
On top of the Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in Black Satin, I painted two layers of OPI Rainbow Connection from the Muppets Collection that came out in late 2011.
Side-note: I am IN LOVE with the Muppets, as they bring a huge sense of nostalgia to my life. So this collection of polishes was my dream come true and I received seven (yes, seven) of them from my stepmom for Christmas last year!
The Rimmel polish has a very smooth application. The brush is one of those flattened type of brushes, which I like. The polish did require two coats to get a nice, opaque finish but I find that this is true of most polishes.
Rainbow Connection is such a cool polish to me. It is literally full of rainbow colored hex-shaped glitter pieces in a variety of sizes immersed in a clear polish. It is fairly easy to apply and getting the glitter to spread and look evenly distributed is a little bit easier than some other polishes I have tried.
The combination of these two polishes reminds me a little of space and I've gotten a few random compliments on them around town.
I'm looking forward to trying this combination with some of the other Muppets Collection polishes I own. In the collection, there are quite a few glitter polishes similar to Rainbow Connection in a few different colors; namely Fresh Frog of Bel-Air, Divine Swine, Gone Gonzo, and Gettin' Miss Piggy with It. I'm sure there will be future posts of these combinations as I own the preceding four polishes. :D
Are you a fan of combinations of polishes like this? Have you tried something similar?
Let me know!
