Today’s NOTD is ELF Smokey Brown. Smokey Brown is one those browny-greyish taupes, that are quite popular at the moment, like OPI You don’t know Jacques, Essie Mink Muffs and Chanel Particulière.
The first coat of this was quite sheer but by 3 coats if had built up to a good colour. All of these pictures are one coat of CND Stickey, 3 coats of polish and one coat of Seche Vite.
First up a picture in artificial light, I always paint my nails at night time and take pictures there and then. I then try to get some daylight pictures, if I manage to get home in time from work and the day isn’t too overcast. I actually got some daylight photos of this one so these follow. While I’m having a ramble, I should apologise for my cuticles, I recently switched to acetone based remover and think that this is the cause, so doing my best to make them better.
So now for a flash picture,
And finally a picture with no flash.
I really liked this polish, although it needed 3 coats. I can’t comment too much on the wear because I only wore it for a little over a day after I ruined it doing a pedi. The pedi (in Rimmel Coralicious, in case you were wondering!) was then ruined because I went to bed before my right big toe was dry! So all in all a waste of a ruined mani.
