Manicure Monday: NYX Las Vegas9:00 AM
It's finally December and that means that everyone is gearing up for the holidays. I'm so looking forward to the festive music, cozy drinks, and sparkly decorations and along with that comes beauty products that match the mood. As soon as it started getting properly chilly (mine from my November visit back home), I knew I had to bust out some of my favorite Christmassy colors again!
What can I say, sparkly polish just feels right lately and NYX Las Vegas fits the season perfectly!
I first gravitated toward this color since I didn't have many deep greens in my collection. Sometimes I feel like greens just don't look as nice on my yellow-toned skin, but every December I get the itch to wear a sparkly forest green and Las Vegas fills that void quite well.
The color itself is a dark hunter green with a glass-fleck shimmer, imparting a sparkly but smooth finish. I used a base of CND Stickey Base with 4 coats of Las Vegas to get full opacity. Thick top coats like Seche Vite really seem to bring out the extra glossiness of these types of shimmer polishes and makes the shimmer pop.
Aren't the blue edges of the bottle kind of beautiful? The polish wand reminds me of a baby version of OPI since it's flat but not as wide. In general this polish is easy to work with and gets a big bang for only being $3.50 when I purchased it at Cherry Culture. Sadly NYX has discontinued this line of polishes completely so you'll probably have to do some local hunting/google searching to find it.
