Essie Fiji with Nicole by OPI Dream Maker

Essie Fiji is a stark pink pastel; the formula isn't excellent, and requires about three coats to be totally even, but the end result is nice. I wanted to soften it somehow, so I layered one coat of Nicole by OPI Dream Maker over top. I really like the effect, and it reminds me of a gold version of Essie's Pure Pearlfection. It's very subtle, just a soft golden glimmer when the light hits it. I you look closely you can see a bit of what looks like green and red micro-shimmer, but it's not evident just from glancing at it.

This is three coats of Essie Fiji, with one of NOPI Dream Maker. Base and top coat are also Essie. I think it makes a subtle pre-Valentine's day manicure, and I definitely like the shimmer Dream Maker adds to it.

...oh, who am I kidding? Looking back on this post, I'm yawning. This is a boring manicure, and it's begging for some glitter. In the meantime, here's a hilarious video of Darth Vader being a troll. Enjoy!
