Orly Androgynie

Happy Halloween! I didn't have a chance to do any real Halloween themed manicures this year, but here is a quick and easy manicure that suites the mood of the holiday well. 
 Androgynie has a lot going on, its a black jelly base packed with gold flecks and micro glitter, then there are multi-colored and multi-sized hex glitters.


I suggest using a strong magnet to attract the mixing balls and move it all along the bottle to stir up the polish first ( I got this tip from Spellbound Nails ) Once you get it thoroughly mixed, it will apply with ease, no fighting to get glitters on your brush and you can achieve the look I got using this method.

Nicole by OPI For Gold Times Sake

For Gold Times Sake is a golden brown shade that is packed with all different colored micro glitters, its gorgeous and very unique to me.
 




here you can catch a glimpse of the micro glitters on my index finger, its more prominent in person, but it was hard for me to capture in a picture.

China Glaze Rendezvous With You and comparison

China Glaze Rendezvous with is a deep shimmery eggplant foil that I absolutely love!

While I was wearing this I was reminded of China Glaze Bogie, which is also a favorite of mine, so I decided to compare them.
 


Rendezvous with you is on the index and ring finger and Bogie is on the middle and pinkie finger, they are very much alike, but Bogie doesn't have the foil effect that Rendezvous with you does but they are both the same color family.

this picture taken in the shade shows the differences more than the direct sun one.
