I belong to an awesome nail polish group where we swap polish but also post polish for free (just pay postage!). Today's feature polish is one that I just paid postage for :)
This is a dark teal polish courtesy of Black Poppy. Black Poppy polish is sold at PacSun. Unfortunately, that's all I found out about this company. This is also no name or number on the polish. But it's gorgeous!
I used two coats of the dark teal as my base coat. It was wonderfully opaque in one coat though. I needed the second to help cover up brush lines though and even things out.
The dark teal is soooo opaque that it stains though :( It's also watery so it flooded a bit and was hard to control. (Maybe that's why I got it for free).
But I still like it. The color is just too pretty not to! I left the dark teal polish by itself on my middle finger.
On my ring and thumb, I layered a coat of Lynnderella Connect the Dots. I added a simple stripe on my index using China Glaze Stone Cold and left the matte finish there. On my pinkie, I used Wet n Wild Black Creme to create a gradient effect which looks so great with the dark teal.
I loved how this mani turned out so much that I couldn't stop myself from staring at it! That's especially dangerous while driving ;)
