OPI - Oy-Another Polish Joke!

Sheerish shimmery gold  

Oy-Another Polish Joke! is a sheer(ish) shimmery gold.

I had read it was sheer so I tried one coat layered over yesterdays Can't Find My Czechbook

It turns out OAPJ is actually a bit too dense for layering but I did end up with this pretty almost verdigris look which I love.

OPI - Can't Find My Czechbook

Muted blue creme  

Can't Find My Czechbook (I do groan at some of these OPI polish names, perhaps that's the point?!) is a muted turquoise leaning blue creme.  IRL this was slightly more green than the pictures show.

Swatch shown is 2 coats with no top coat and you can see it's not super shiny.

Application was slightly streaky but it ended up ok.  And it's a mini bottle from the Euro Minis collection of four shades.

Nailgirls Purple #2 - Irredescent Purple

Plum/purple shimmer  

Described by the brand as "The ultimate in Burlesque, a high shine, silver irredescent (sic) purple nail varnish. Not really one for the shrinking violet."

Purple #2 (I can't bring myself to misspell iridescent again) is a pretty but not very unique purple/plum with a silvery shimmer.

Swatch shown is 2 coats with no top coat and application was good
