NOTD: L'oreal Party Hop Over Nubar Twilight Kiss

***Very sorry about the horrid pics. I hope to get a new camera this Saturday and no not a Valentine gift, but a Christmas present that was not cashed in yet.***
Onto the post...

2 days ago I did a mani of Nubar Twilight Kiss.

The recipe:

1 coat Nail Tek Formula II basecoat

2 coats Nubar Twilight Kiss

1 coat Nail Tek Formula II topcoat

This I believe is very simiar to OPI Parlez Vous...

But then again, maybe not. Of course these pics can be deceiving. Maybe one day I will do a comparison between these 2.

So one day after I got bored with the color and I couldn't make up my mind if I wanted to do a Konadicure or layer with another color.

I decided to layer. So I chose an *untried* that being L'Oreal Party Hop:

I have never tried this one at all, so I don't know if it is sheer by itself. Which I think it is. But here is the result:

I like it so much more than just the Nubar!

Then before I added the Party Hop to my other hand, I decided to layer MAC Varicose Violet over Twilight Kiss before PH on my pinky. On the left VV, I really don't think it looks like this. I think it has undertones of gold in it. On the right: pinky has TK, VV, and PH; rest has TK and PH.

Only one coat of each of PH and VV, but still prettier by far.

So today I am walking around like this, but who really looks at the pinky if most of the hand is purple?

What do y'all think?

I think I have that Nubar somewhere in my untrieds. I need to dig it out. It looks beautiful!
