OPI Road House Blues with sponged tips!

Goodevening, how are you girls doing? I am kinda sad, last few days I am realizing it really is done with the (non existing) summer here, it's getting dark pretty early already and the leafs are changing color. I think that explains my mood for dark dark polishes lately.

Today I am showing you OPI Road House Blues. It is accompanied by GOSH Gasoline which I sponged on my tips.

OPI RHB needed 2 easy flowing coats for opacity. It is really shiny when it dries and I love that's dark, yet not turning black. It's creamy and sophisticated and I'll be wearing this more than once!


The sponging was done with a make-up sponge (the cheap kind that sometimes comes with eyeshadow). I prefer a make-up sponge for my sponging since normal houseware sponges may tear apart leaving you with weird yellow gunk on your nails. Also it soaks up less of your polish. You do have to be careful that you really "sponge", sometimes it tends to drift around your nails making it look weird.



So what do you think? Like the sponging? And what is your favorite sponging polish?

  5. Amazing, these two polishes look great together! I like to use "Choose me!" for sponging, in particular over a black polish or a blue one :)

  14. I was tempted to use Choose Me or even China Glaze Zombie Zest, but I always have one of those greenish golden sponged tips :). So for variation this is great! And thank you.
