Good evening! Wow, it's almost midnight here. I'm tired, and I've had a couple of glasses of wine, so I hope this makes sense. LOL! ;-)
I started out with essence What Do U Think? It is a med. Peachy orange color. There are actually two versions of this color. One is a cream, and the other has gold shimmer in it. The cream is a bit darker. I have both. I decided I wanted to wear the one with the shimmer in it. Well....I had them sitting side by side, and I ended up using them both. By accident. I started out with the polish that has the shimmer in it, but when I went to do my second coat, I guess I grabbed the wrong one. I noticed AFTER I had painted three nails that it looked darker,and I couldn't see the shimmer. LOL! So, I just decided to go with the cream. I didn't feel like taking the polish off and starting again. So, the version I'm going to show you is the darker peach/orange color. I ended up using three coats. It was a little thick, but it evened out okay.
I liked it just fine, but I had wanted shimmer today. So, I added a coat of Maybelline Colorama Shimmer Girl on top. Shimmer Girl is a wonderful flakie. It has bright orange,light orange and teal flakes in it. I love this polish. I found it in an old beauty supply shop for only a dollar. After I added SG on top, I decided to matte it with Essie's Matte About You. When I was done, the colors reminded me of goldfish. :-)
First up, the finished project.
Before I added the Matte top coat.
Essence What Do You Think? By itself. This one is said to be a dupe for Chanel Orange Fizz. I can't say for sure, as I don't have Orange Fizz, but quite a few people On MUA have said it's pretty close.
Thanks for looking! I'm off to get some much needed sleep! :-)
