OPI ~ This Gown Needs A Crown

OPI ~ This Gown Needs A Crown
Metallic silver sparkle

"This Gown Needs A Crown" is an oldie; it's from the "Miss Universe" collection from Autumn 2013. I bought it in a blog sale recently and am very happy with it.

The formula is good and I used two easy coats for full opacity. The drying time is good. This polish is so sparkly that it doesn't really need a topcoat to shine!

The stamp is from the stamping plate "BeautyBigBang XL-017". I stamped with red and blue stamping polishes from Colour Alike: "B. a Red Wine" and "B. a Rainy Mood".

I topcoated the whole thing, and here it is:

I love the outcome of this.

Here's "This Gown Needs A Crown" alone; two coats and no topcoat. It's so shiny that it freaked my camera out a bit.

These are the things I used today. Note the little crown on the top of the bottle of OPI.

I think "This Crown Needs A Gown" is a really gorgeous and sparkly base colour for nail art. I'm so glad that I got to buy it cheap from a blog sale.
