NotD – Red Plus Lavender?

Let me start by saying sorry about the strange way I’m holding my hand. I cut my ring finger on Sunday and though it’s healing very well I haven’t changed the polish on that finger.
I finally have all the recent Eyeko polishes, so I thought I’d try Saucy Polish. But when it was dry I just didn’t feel like wearing red any more. Layering ensued.

This is what I used today:

  • Sally Hansen Diamond Strength
  • Eyeko Saucy Polish for naughty nails
  • Spooky Nails 2 in 1 nail tattoo liner black
  • Alessandro Pro White Hologram Lavender
  • Seche Vite

After a rather lengthy patching session I applied two coats of Diamond Strength, followed by two coats of Saucy Polish and one of Seche Vite.

Saucy Polish is a smooth rich red crème, surprisingly warm considering how brightly pink a thin coat is. Those of you who own Eyeko’s Hot! Hot! Hot! Red Nail Polish for naughty nails know this colour, it’s practically identical. Like most Eyeko polishes Saucy Polish is very opaque and perfect in two coats.
This polish is very thick, thin coats are very difficult to achieve, but thicker coats level nicely and still dry well. Overall, Saucy Polish applies very well, the formula seems very similar to its predecessor, but the longer, softer brush makes a huge difference.

This is Saucy Polish in two coats with Seche Vite:

And here’s my thumbnail with Saucy Polish on the left and Red Nail Polish on the right. I’d say the latter is slightly brighter (boo for horrible photos!).

For some reason wearing red made me really nervous tonight (no idea what was going on), so I added some dots…

…and then some Hologram Lavender. Kinda funky, right?

What do you do when you don’t feel like wearing a colour you just applied any more?
