Just a Little Rosti at This...Just Busta Mauve

**all items purchased by me

I'm really trying to be better at sprinkling in my ABC nail challenge posts along with all the others that I do, so that it doesn't look like all I do is go shopping.  I really do use the products that I buy, even if it takes me a while.  Anyway, let's see 2 more polishes that I pulled for the next letter in the alphabet, letter "J."
It took me a bit to think of any polishes I had that start with J, but when I looked through an out-dated list in my notebook, I came across 2 that just happened to be in the section of polishes I've been working out of for this challenge.  Then once I pulled them out to use, it took me a while to figure out how I wanted to incorporate the two of them together...

To start off, I put 2 very easy coats of OPI Just a Little Rosti at This on over my usual ridge-filling base coat, then topped it off with Out the Door top coat.  Fun fact:  this is one of the very first OPI polishes that I purchased, and I got it on clearance from the grocery store for $.99
OPI Just a Little Rosti at This is a gorgeous brownish red creme.  It applied extremely easy, with minimal cleanup needed.  I used 2 coats here, but if you use more of a medium-thick coat you only need one.  One coat is what I used when I used it as a base for a Pumpkin polish the other day (link is below the next picture if you want to see).
You can also see Just a Little Rosti at This as a base for orange glitter, in filtered sunlight, in this post.

By the time I finally decided on how I wanted to wear my second polish, my pinkie and ring fingers ended up with way too much polish on, but I didn't feel like starting over so I just kept layering polish on.  FYI: Just a Little Rosti at This seemed to darken with more layers.  I ended up doing what seems to be a reoccurring theme with me - diagonal color blocking.  This is 2 coats of Nicole by OPI Just Busta Mauve free-handed on.  I'm pretty sure I used another layer of Out the Door since there's so many layers on because of my indecisiveness and unwillingness to start over.
Nicole by OPI Just Busta Mauve is a sheer polish made up of blue, red, maybe some orange/rust colored shimmers...however you describe it, it's pretty.  It really reminds me of Fall time, which is appropriate given as how it's towards the end of September.  I'm not going to comment as to how fast it dried since I had way too many layers of polish on at this point.

Here's a picture of Just Busta Mauve on it's own from just about a year ago.  4 coats; yes, it's that sheer:
I bought it, wore it but never blogged it.  Oops.  I believe I purchased it from Target when it came out.
Since I never blogged it, I counted it as an untried.

What's your favorite way to do glitters/layering polishes?  Are you starting to transition to more Fall-type colors?
