I have a sometimes unhealthy obsession with nail polish

Nail of the Day: 11.14.2011

Today’s NOTD is a combination of Essie’s Merino Cool and butter LONDON’s No More Waity Katie. Essie’s Merino Cool is a purple-y grey creme polish. The application is great, but you do need three coats for complete opacity. I found that with two coats it was a bit sheer near the cuticle. 

Merino Cool is the exact base color of butter LONDON’s No More Waity Katie. I picked up No More Waity Katie back in June but I’ve only used it about twice since then. I love the lilac glitter in it, but the purple-grey base color is so sheer! I needed like five coats to achieve opacity. I only tried the combo of Merino Cool and No More Waity Katie on my ring fingers, but I think it looks pretty good. I used two coats of Merino Cool and two coats of No More Waity Katie on those fingers.

Essie is widely available at a variety of stores. I picked this bottle up at Rite Aid, but I’ve also seen it at Target, Meijer, and Ulta, of course. I grabbed this bottle of butter LONDON at Ulta, but it’s also available at Nordstrom stores.
