Bustin' a Mauve with Some Taped Stiletto Moons

Good morning! Today's post uses one of the Nicole by OPI Target Exclusives for Fall 2012 - Just Busta Mauve.

Nicole by OPI Just Busta Mauve is very interesting! It's a copper and blue fleck-type polish. There are other colors in it as well, like rosy pink and gold, and it seems to change color a bit when you move it around. I was curious how it would look over black, so I used it in this tape manicure over a plain black creme base.

I used two thin coats of it in the tape manicure here, so if you were to wear it alone, I think you would probably need three for opacity.

The particles in the polish are small, but it's still easy to see that they are irregularly shaped. They lay flat and are completely smooth with one coat of topcoat. It also applies easily and evenly.

I love the way this looks -- so fall/winter appropriate. Overall, I think it's a great and unique offering from Nicole by OPI!

What do you guys think of this shade? While the color of this polish normally wouldn't appeal to me, I really do enjoy the way this particular polish pulls it off. I don't have anything like it in my collection.

Just Busta Mauve is available now at Target and on for $7.04. Nicole by OPI polishes are 3-free.
