Recently, as I searched Google for random swatches for Asian polishes, I stumbled on a blog that goes by the name of At First Wink. After browsing a number of Michelle's many magnificent swatches, I came across her swatch of Etude House RD106. I thought it was sooo pretty, and then it struck me that I have it too!
I scoured my stash of untrieds, and put on the polish immediately after finding it. I was pleased to see that it's just as pretty as her swatch shows! The only downside is that it took me 4 coats to get the opacity where I wanted it. Fortunately, it dried extremely quickly, and the subtle silver glitter adds the prettiest touch.
Since I wanted to add my touch of pizzazz to the look, I decided to go over the polish with a coat of Sephora Real 18K Gold Top Coat. I figured the delicate gold flakes wouldn't overwhelm the simplicity of the entire mani.
This gold top coat was suuuper expensive when it first came out, but I caught mine on sale yay! That's something about me, I will always, always wait for things to go on sale (sneakers being my exception). My shopping-savvy aunts taught me well! (:
Etude House RD106 + Sephora Real 18K Gold Top Coat
My bottle of Etude House RD106 was full at first, but after this mani I feel like I used up so much of it with 4 coats!! It makes me scared to use it... but it's so pretty that I will. I'll probably rock it by itself next time, too.
Anyyyyhoooo... have any of you guys discovered cool, new blogs lately? Link me!! :D
