in artificial light:
I applied two coats of Manhattan No 006 over Essence Hardening Nail Base. The formula is as to be expected with a crelly sheer but was opaque enough after two coats for my taste. The application was flawless, dry time very quick and the finish - well look at the pictures - they are taken without Top Coat. Impressive - wouldn't you agree?
Final thoughts: I love, love, love this kind of polishes. The shimmer is prominent enough to add plenty of sparks to the mani, yet it is not overly prominent so this makes No 006 wearable any day any time. In case you are reminded of Picture Polish Bewitch: no, they are not twins. Bewitch has a brown base with aubergine undertones and Manhattan 006 has a clearly burgundy base. The basic "connecting" ingredient of the two are the golden shimmer particles. Nati, this is another awesome pick for my stash - I am so happy with it - merci mille fois!!!
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for dropping by!!!
