Quick Rokk96 on Black Swatch – bad photos!
My fantastic mother brought me two Rokk96 polishes back from her holiday, and I had to put them on straight away. I also knew that these were fairly sparse glitter in a clear base, and would take approximately 8,767,609,826,874,255,343 coats to become anything like opaque – at which point my hands would weigh 5 kgs each. So, when this happens, do you despair? No! You do not! You rejoice, as you have in your hands the perfect layering polish.
My camera is sad. It won’t focus properly. I apologise for the terrible photos, and I’ll make it up later I promise! I used China Glaze Liquid Leather as the base colour (two coats), and it ended up with tip wear overnight. Sigh. Beautiful black, cr*ppily short wear time. Then I put one coat of Sequin (the magenta polish) and Emerald (um, yes, the green!) over each other, on top of the black, and a top coat – L’Oreal Quick Dry.
And thats when I noticed – these aren’t a glitter polish at all, it’s a SHIMMER. The particles are very fine, very smooth, and very small. Not a microshimmer, but much smaller than I was expecting. I love this colour combination, it’s almost galactic over the black. The dry time was quick. Sequin also has fine silver shimmer, though it is predominantly purple – just gorgeous.
I can think of so many things to layer these over! How awesome. Thanks again, G, love you heaps and thank you for thinking of me on your holiday, and bringing me presents! Wheeee!
