Who is ready to see another Pretty and Polished creation?
Today I'd like to share Toy With Me -- a real doozy of a polish. It is a whitish speckled matte duochrome. I know, right? Not only is it matte, one of my favorite finishes, but its also textured AND duochrome. Be still my heart.
The whitish matte looks vaguely pink when you look at it straight on, but then as you start to move your nails and view them from different angles it shifts to green.
I'll be honest with you guys, I am not normally a fan of microglitter. But the tiny green glitter in this polish is used in such a way that it just makes the polish look textured instead of weirdly bumpy or overly sparkly. It's quite nice, if you ask me (and if you're reading, it counts as asking me)!
The only real drawback to this polish is that is is a bit sheer, and to build it up to full opacity, I used four coats. It wasn't overly thick after the four coats, but it might be worth putting this one over a coat of OPI Skull and Glossbones or something to save on polish.
Here's a macro of it for you. It reminds me of salt and pepper. :)
And just for funsies, I tried adding topcoat to it. The photo of Toy With Me with topcoat shows the color shift nicely, and the topcoat makes the texture stand out more, too. If you take a look at my pinky and ring fingers, you can see the pinkish tone that the polish has most of the time. My middle finger is beginning to shift to the green; the pointer is almost fully greened out.
Toy With Me can be purchased on the Pretty and Polished Etsy. It is currently available in a mini size for $4.50. If you check out the listing, Chelsea also shows it layered it over a black creme, and the results are really awesome. I will definitely have to try that soon!
