NYC Rule The City & Sinful Colors Decadent

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
2 Coats NYC Rule The City
4 Coats SinfulColors Decadent (accent)
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

When I first saw swatches of the Crystal Couture collection from NYC... Rule The City was definitely the standout. Gun metal gray peppered with fine red glitter? Ummm... yes! Honestly, I'd wear this shade minus the red sparkles, but you know me. I'm a sucker for glitter, and the more, the better!

The formula on NYC Rule The City was great. Two easy coats completely covered my nails. No patchiness, no third coat necessary! For my accent nails, I used Sinful Colors Decadent to create a glitter gradient. I love the way the accents turned out, and I kind of regret not doing gradients on all my nails. 

If you're looking for a vampire-themed look for Halloween, I think this is one that would be easy to recreate. Maybe add in a little red polish to the tips underneath Decadent for blood-dipped tips that really stand out!

Tomorrow's prompt is RAINBOW... so check back here tomorrow to see how I tackle Day 9 of #31DC2014!!!
