Immortal Nails!


I thought today I would show off a more recent (October) acquisition of mine...China Glaze Immortal and the look I came up with to jazz it up a little.  This came out with the Halloween collection for 2012, and as soon as I saw swatches of it online I knew I wanted it.  I was also going through a gray phase at that time (must buy all the gray polishes!!).  This pretty was kinda hard to track down but I did!

Here is 2 coats of Immortal over my usual Bridge the Ridge base coat.  I don't remember if I used top coat or not....probably did.

You can see some of the pink shimmer on my thumb nail

Immortal is a pretty steel gray with superfine shimmer in pink and teal running through that are almost invisible in most situations - the shimmers just give it some more dimension.

Then I free-handed 2 thin coats of Essie Scarlett O'Hara on the tips (and probably added another layer of quick dry top coat)

Looking back at this, probably a pink or teal would have been a better choice to accent the shimmers in Immortal, but I still like the way that the red wine shimmery-glowy Scarlett O'Hara looks

If I remember correctly, this wore for a few days before I got noticeable chips.

Did you pick up Immortal when it was out?  What do you think of my combo?  Let me know!
