One of the best layering experiments ever :O

I picked up Ruby Kisses Bold and the Beautiful a while ago hoping it might satisfy my lemming for OPI Sapphire in the Snow.


It's not quiet the same color, Bold and the Beautiful is a bit more red based than Sapphire in the Snow, but it's still a gorgeous purple cream. It also has an amazing shine to it, I didn't use a top coat in any of these photos so you could see for yourself. Please excuse the messy (lack of) clean up, I was in a rush to get ready for work.


Because, as you know, I suck at wearing just one nail polish, I decided to layer a Love & Beauty polish I hadn't tried yet which is just labelled as blue/multi.


Blue/multi is a sheer cornflower blue polish with a pink/copper duochrome. In the bottle it reminds me a bit of China Glaze Blue w/o You, but it's not nearly as awesome. This is a polish that really comes alive when layered over something else. Well, see for yourself:


What my photos don't show is the way this flashes red, which looks a lot like a deeper, vampier version of China Glaze Cowboy Up. Drool worthy brain image right there, huh?

  1. Oh man. That Ruby Kisses is beautiful. It's going on my To Buy list ASAP. The layering is lovely too. I love the little twinkle light shimmer. But man I really love that Ruby Kisses.

    Help with my pics? Are you kidding me? First of all, if you're going to continue to give me all this wonderful advice, be an adult about it and stop posting anonymously. Second of all, I didn't have time to clean up my manicure... so that means my photos "need help"? What part of that makes any sense to you at all? So what if this manicure was sloppy? For that matter, why do you care if ANY of my manicures are less than sparkling? I'm not sure why you keep reading my blog if all you're doing is looking for faults as you obviously don't like my nails or the way I take care of them. For the record, my photos are just fine and you need to see a doctor quick, before that stick migrates from your ass and plants itself in your brain.

    Man, I didn't even remember to mention that Bold and the Beautiful has the potential to be a one-coat polish. I mean, there is nothing more you could want from a polish, it's great.

  7. That is gorgeous. I have a WnW purple shimmer similar to the topcoat you used and it gives that same fantastic duochrome shimmer but I never thought to try it over a blue.
