Today I'm going to show you another layering I did with two OPI polishes. This time I used the second color to perk up a two day old NOTD. I usually like to change my polish every other day. If by the second day of my manicure I'm bored with it, I usually put a coat of something sheer over it. It's a great way to extend a manicure one more day.
My nail of the day for the last two days has been Parlez-Vous OPI? from the Fall 2008 France Collection. I used two coats and the result was a beautiful dusty lilac creme. It's the perfect fall color but after two days it needed a little boost.
That's where Significant Other Color comes in handy. It's from a 2006 Bright's Collection. It's too sheer for me to wear it alone, but I've found it quite handy for layering. For layering over Parlez-Vous OPI? I used two coats. Bam! You got a whole different manicure and all it took was 5 minutes. I think it looks pretty similar to Zoya Adina which is currently on its way to me via a blog sale. So I'll have to compare the two sometime.
