Excuse Moi layered over Metallic Red

It's my birthday tomorrow and I've got an early birthday present to show today.

I'm proud to say that my mum and I recently converted my muggle sister-in-law to the world of polish.  I was so totally excited to received one of the OPI Muppets polishes from her and the family when we caught up last weekend.  I love this so much that I'm going to have to grab a few more of the Muppets polishes.  Watch out Warm & Fozzy, Rainbow connection and Designer, de Better (I'm coming for you!)

I wore one coat of a dollar shop polish brand called NURY in Metal Red.  This is a gorgeous colour, but I didn't remember to photograph it on it's own.  I then layered two coats of OPI Excuse Moi, then gelous, then Seche Vite top coat.
This layering was so pretty.  My photos just don't do it justice. 

Excuse Moi is such an interesting polish.  It's opaque enough to wear on it's own in two coats, but it also is perfect for layering too. Because of it's pink base, I didn't realise there were so many interesting glitter colours in this polish until I got the macro shot.  I think that is why it looked so pretty on the nail.

I only took this off cause I scored a bottle of Essence Blue Addicted at Target yesterday and I had to kill that Across the Universe lemming immediately!  I will be putting this laying combo back on again soon. Love it!
