I wanted to put all of these gorgeous browns into one mani so I put them into a gradient. Unfortunately my gradient skills were lacking last night so I decided to add some stamping. I'm glad I did because I think the gold looks amazing over the browns. Plus I found another polish that is great for stamping! I will post some individual polish photos and then another pic of the final look.
First up is Morning Coffee. This color is amazing. I must apologize for my photos on this one. I was playing around with my lightbox and the photos didn't turn out very well. Unfortunately I didn't know this until about 30 minutes ago. LOL This is such a lovely creme, so creamy and smooth. Much like morning coffee. *wink* The application was amazing and it is shiny on its own. This is 2 coats and no top coat.
Up next is the other coffee-themed creme, Dark Coffee. Might as well put those together, right? This one is much darker, no cream and sugar in this one! Amazing application and as shiny as a jelly but with the opacity of a creme. This is 2 coats, no top coat. Please excuse the doggy hair in my nails, again I did not notice this until about 30 minutes ago.
Next we have Chocolate Sprinkles. I LOVE this one. It has a gold shimmer that makes it look like it is lit from within. Another 2-coater with amazing application but this one does have a top coat to help bring out the shimmer.
The last one I have for you tonight is the polish I used for stamping in my finished mani. My hands look blue in these pics, it was the only way I could make the color of the polish turn out correctly. Every other way was too brassy so please forgive the blue hands. This one is also a "wear test." I had this on for almost 24 hours without top coat for these pics. You can see it wore very well, especially for a foil. Two coats and no application issues.
And one last look at the finished product.
