I know it must have happen to all of you at least once: a polish looks great in the bottle, but not so much on nails. This was the case with After Party.
I looove dark polishes! specially ones with colorful shimmer or glitter. When I find one I like, I Google swatches before buying to see if it will look as amazing on nails as it looks on the bottle. I purchased After Party in a hurry, so this step was skipped :/ This polish has beautiful mix of blue, purple and fuchsia shimmer on a very dark navy blue base. Sadly, the shimmer gets lost in the dark base. In direct sunlight the shimmer was just a little more visible.
I wasn't going to take pictures of it, but days later did it anyway.
Was thinking of adding a couple drops of white to make it less dark, but I'm afraid of messing it up.
If you have any tips on how to make the shimmer on this baby stand out, let me know!
