I'm late for today's post, don't worry, I know. I wanted to prepare this post yesterday, but quite simply forgot. So without further ado let's check this week's color for Cyw's and Lena's series.
Two coats with top coat. When I applied the second coat, I had to be careful not to take polish off the nail with the brushstrokes, which is a problem I really hate. Patchy application, ugh! I would attribute that to my lacking technique rather than the polish, though. Anyway, this is not very accurately depicted above. In reality, it's darker and has much more of a purple/plum tone to it, just really a color that I would associate with the deep, luscious look of an aubergine. Then again, no two aubergines (or eggplants) look the same, so I guess the term does give you a bit of room for interpretation. As opposed to the vegetable, this has some beautiful shimmer in it, which sadly isn't so much visible since the sky is completely overcast today.
Story time! I first selected OPI "Honk If You Love OPI" for today, then changed my mind like two days ago and photographed Orly's "Velvet Rope", then today I looked at "Eiffel For This Color" (which I just received in the mail last Saturday) and thought to myself "Man, this would work really well, too!", so I applied and photographed it. Also, when we were out grocery shopping on Saturday, I had a good look at the aubergines to make sure I knew what color to look for in my collection... I guess I looked a little weird staring at a few aubergines all intensely, but I don't think anyone really cared. Lol.
