Alphabet Nail Challenge: D is for Daring (by Speciallità)

Posted on Thursday, at bought • 332 views

I'm participating in an Alphabet Nail Challenge that I found over at Confessions of a Secret Shopper. She's running her contest from September 1 to 26 - start between those dates, and you can add your link to the list of people taking the challenge. All you have to do is post 26 manicures, one a day, each day using a polish that begins with a different letter of the alphabet. I'm using this as an opportunity to go through my backlog of polishes (and photos still on my hard drive!!) to show off some of my newer goodies.

Another from Speciallità‘s Mari Moon collection. Daring's colorshift is a little more noticeable than Artsy - the medium-deep blue changes to a lavender to a magenta-ish. As with all the Mari Moon colors (at least, all the ones I've tried thus far) the first layer won't show much more than some blackening, and a little bit of the primary color. I had to use four or five coats to get the effects in these manicures, though you could probably reduce that to two or three if you first laid down a deep blue or a dark grey polish. Then you'd have the base color, and two coats of the Mari Moon shade.

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches
