Hidden Treasures

This week has been busy for me. I haven’t even had time to update with my notw until now. The manicure of the week is $OPI Under My Trench Coat. I snuck out during work yesterday to get some photos in the sun. The sun was setting, it was freezing (-5 C) and the pictures could have been better, so excuse me for red and frozen fingers..

Anyway, the polish is great! Do you see the gold glimmering under the greige surface? It has just enough golden shimmer to be a really shiny but inoffensive neutral crème in office light, but in the sun or in bright light, this coated baby wears gold spun silk underneath!

Three coats plus Seche Vite top coat, under Nubar foundation. It was a little thick and lumpy, but the end result is very pleasing, I have now had the manicure for three whole work days without a single chip and not any tip wear at all.

  1. That is a great color on you!

  2. agreed - great colour, looks like a cousin to metro chic

  3. Thank you, gildedangel and Cali369!

    If I'll try to figure out the genetic history of this polish, I would propose that this is the child of Metro Chic and Run With It, but only if you take into account that Metro Chic had Dior Gold Nugget as a hidden gene streak (and who has been so unfaithful as to get this european thing in the genes of a $OPI, I'm not the one to judge.. ;-p )

  4. Just one last comment:

    I did this manicure last sunday. It is now friday night, and there is not a single chip, almost no tip wear!

    This is the first time I try Nubar Foundation, so far I have nothing but raves!!

  5. This is a gorgeous color on you!!

  6. Thanks beautyjudy!

    I love it so much, it is going to hurt me taking it of tomorrow, after one solid week. Today, I spent my whole day baking gingerbreads with my two children and my mother. Many washes of hands, but not a sign of stress on my polish.
    I have always liked the $SOPI polishes I own, but this is spectacular! Maybe it is the Nubar foundation?
