Layering with 3 untried polishes

I told you before about my untried obsession. I already took it back a step as I just wanted to wear some colors so badly a second time but "couldn't" because we all know there is never coming an end to all the untried polishes. But it's also very rewarding when I create a gorgeous manicure using 2 or more untired polishes.

This manicure is a result of an attempt to kill 3 untrieds. I used Essence Midnight date as a base, which is part of the Colour3 duo called Midnight Date. I needed 1 coat (love that!) and it's a lovely deep dark blue polish with gorgeous shimmer. I applied 1 coat of NYX Bejeweled over the basecolor. After that I used the other half of Midnight Date, City That Never Sleeps. This manicure still was just 3 layers but also 3 untrieds vanished!

My index finger received a bit too much NYX Bejeweled but the color difference definitely wasn't as noticable in real life.

Do you like this layering?

  2. Wow!! The final result is so rich! Ah, the untrieds obsession ... it hasn't passed for me either. But i'm really happy right now as I'm almost under 50 untrieds. I started at near 100, so i feel that's an achievement. :)

  8. Beautiful layering! I like layering but I am always afraid I will screw it up and hate it, lol, so it's not often I try. I will have to remind myself to play around before removing my manis from now on!
