Urban Affair

**all items purchased by me

Time for a new letter in the ABC polish challenge.  I'm slowly getting to the end of these posts - just a handful left and then the wrap-up!  Yay.  So what letter is next?  Why, it's
I did cheat a little and just popped a coat of Icing Urban Affair over top of the previous color - OPI The World Is Not Enough.  I knew that Urban Affair needed undies, or else it would take quite a few coats to build up and I just did not want to mess with the nightmare of that removal.
Urban Affair actually reminds me a little bit of my bottle of Sephora by OPI polish in If You've Got It, Haunt It, although with a much less runny formula.  Urban Affair actually went on pretty easily.  At this point, I don't remember if it dried smoothly or not...but on my nail wheel, it's got a bit of a fine, gritty feel.  I believe I did add topcoat at some point, whether or not it was before or after picture time, though, is not clear.
Urban Affair has lots of gunmetal particles to it, along with a good bit of holo glitters added to the mix with a sprinkling of matte black glitter.  I had this on about a week before Halloween, so my nails were feeling appropriately colored.
 Isn't it pretty in the natural daylight?

I just can't get enough of any glitter polish that looks like it has holo sparkles in it!  Just about every one I've come across has come home with me...although I am trying to be a teeny-tiny bit better about buying every polish I stumble across.  Unfortunately, I don't believe this one is available anymore (especially since Icing is transitioning to the rectangular bottles, which while they take up less space in the drawer/nest together better, I don't care for the shape - it feels more unstable when using).

Given that Thanksgiving is this week here in the U.S., what are you planning on wearing on your nails?  Simple, glitter, stamping/other art?  I haven't much thought about mine yet.
