On to polish though, I have an older Deborah Lippmann polish that came out in 2007. It's called I Want Candy and it's a sheer red jelly. I know all jelly's are technically sheer, but this one is incredibly sheer and goes on pink with the first two coats. On the third coat, however, it starts looking a bit more like a red jelly. The next three pictures all have three coats with no topcoat.
It takes four coats of I Want Candy to really look like the red jelly it is, but before I added that fourth coat I thought I would go ahead and make a jelly sandwich! So, I used one coat of Boom Boom Pow. Um, I might have gotten a bit camera happy with these two polishes.
Here's the mani with the fourth coat of I Want Candy added. I love the way it turned out. It's red, but this polish is so sheer that the gold still peeks through.
See, this is me being camera happy. I went ahead and swatched Boom Boom Pow just to show you how it looks on it's own. I used three coats with topcoat. I'm quite fond of this polish, but I really don't like the way it looks on it's own.
I know it was a lot of pictures, but you can expect twice as much tomorrow! So consider this your warning because tomorrow I have all three polishes from Barney's 2011 Holiday collection. ^_^
