Moonwalk Is My Number One Nemesis
I started this mani with OPI Number One Nemesis (Spiderman Collection), a polish that is really hard to discribe. It has a clear (or sheer black? Can't really tell) base filled with gold, silver and black particles that gives it a green-ish, murky golden foil finish. Number One Nemesis is pretty sheer, I used three coats and could still see my nail line, if I held the fingers to the light.
Then I took a new attempt with a technique I just can't master: glitter gradients. I added several coats (I think it was three in total) of NYX Moonwalk, beginning from the tips and ending each coat a little higher up. Moonwalk has a sheer black base and is filled with small and medium holographic hexes. I'm sure, some of you (maybe most of you) would have chosen a polish with a clear base for a glitter gradient, but I kind of like how the tips get darker.
Well, I don't really know. Don't hate it, but don't love it either. I think I have to try much more, until I'm able to create a glitter gradient I'm really happy with...
