Wet 'n Wild Wild Shine 'Eggplant Frost' is a red-toned purple base with a blue shimmer that cools it considerably. The formula was opaque in 3 thin coats (I had some cuticle drag issues), but two medium coats would work nicely as well. This color didn't turn me on that much; it reminds me too much of the 90's. The only benefit to a color like this is the polish's price: I bought mine for .99 cents. Other than that, I can't see myself using it for much more than a base to layer other polishes over.
I had to clip my claws, lol. I was afraid of them breaking and the ends were starting to get all peeley.
Nfu-Oh 51 has a purple base with a magenta shimmer and duochrome flakies that are alternately pink and gold, and green. It's a 'WOW' polish! One coat of this polish gave me flakie duochrome goodness; two coats gave me dimensional flakie duochrome awesomeness! I can so see this as nail polish jewelry. (Note to self: figure out how to make nail polish jewelry!) One quick coat of Seche and I was good to go! Click on these pictures to see more detail!
This one was taken after a day spent digging in the sand at the beach, lol. There's some tip wear and a chip on the edge of the nail on my index finger. >_< But look at that amazing blue-green flash! You can see this in shade, indirect sunlight or under fluorescent lights (this picture was under fluorescents).
One more picture for you, lol... the best picture of a hermit crab I have ever taken! One of the best things about the beach we went to was the hermit crab hunting.
