To pick a favorite was a hard task considering this crowded area of mine called "favorites". But in the end there is one polish I wore for nearly half a year at least once a week: Opi Black Cherry Chutney from Opi's India Collection for Spring 2008. Maybe this was the mother of all those red shimmer infused purple and blackened purple shades we see? I would not know this but fact is, that Black Cherry Chutney is loaded with red shimmer - as so often though - more in the bottle than on the nail.
I applied two coats of Opi Black Cherry Chutney over A England The Knight Base Coat. The formula is not very pigmented and only just so on the fence between thin and runny. The first coat went on patchy and streaky but with a slightly thicker second coat I could even out all of that and achieve the above beautiful opacity. In my first picture you can see the shimmer poking through on my middle finger - so it is very, very subtly visible!!! Black Cherry Chutney dries to this incredible high shine, so Top Coat is not a necessity.
Would you also have a hard time naming A favorite polish?
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
