Electric Midnight Blue
This month's Nail Challenge Collaborative challenge is Our Favorite Color. My fave color for as long as I can remember has been Midnight Blue. It's kinda hard to capture in polish, as it can easily go too dark and end up black. But I was able to pick 4 polishes that closely resembled what I love about the deep, dark, mysterious Midnight Blue.
I started with Seche Hypnotic, an electric/metallic midnight blue.
It has some brightness where the light hits, and some areas of shadows. It's a one-coater, too. I decided to add another of my faves, flakies, to it with Liquidus Lapis.
Can you see the flakies? Yeah, me, neither. Not really. Whomp, whomp.
Bottle shot: Seche Hypnotic and Liquidus Lapis.
So disappointing when a flakie doesn't deliver! I'll try it over something else before I declare it a total fail. After all, there are so many in the bottle. Surely they have to show up sometime on the nail, right?
