Fishbowl Friday 063 // Silver

Let's all do a little ohmygoshthankthelordthatitisfriday dance, shall we? Oh, it's not just me?!? Even better! I'm sooooooo beyond ready to have a weekend to catch my breath and just relax a little bit! Today's prompt is a pretty simple one. SILVER could be translated and done about a thousand different ways. But since I'm wearing black, white, and grey, I thought I'd combine charcoal grey nails with sparkly textured silver polish on my accent nails...

Revlon Diamond Texture and China Glaze Out Like a Light

Polishes Used: 

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats China Glaze Out Like a Light
3 Coats Revlon Diamond Texture
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

Diamond Texture from Revlon is about the closest thing I've found to a silvery version of Zoya Tomoko. But it's not exaaaaactly what I'm lemming. Don't get me wrong, it's a bright silver, it's textured, and there's a ton of sparkle! But I just wish that it were a little bit lighter. I'm thinking I need a silver with platinum or white gold vibes. 

But like I said, for now, it's Tomoko's silver... cousin. Application was great... Diamond Texture goes on just as easily as my other texture polishes. The formula is slightly thinner than Tomoko, but you still get great coverage with each coat. Most people would probably only need two coats, but I added a third to be make sure I didn't have any patches. 

On my other nails, I used China Glaze Out Like a Light, a pretty dark charcoal grey. I really like this shade. I tend to reach for black polish when I don't know what else to wear, and this is a nice alternative to that. Black can sometimes be a little stark and cold. While Out Like a Light is definitely dark, there's a softness to it on my nails. 

So, I just realized that this is the first time in a while that I don't have any set plans or expectations for the weekend, and I'm actually okay with that! Whatever your plans may be... I hope you have a great Friday, and a fabulous Saturday and Sunday, too!
