Manicure Monday: Urban Decay Addiction9:00 AM
As a follow-up to last week's Mani Monday, I wanted to test out the second polish from Urban Decay's Fall release: Addiction. This khaki-green shimmer blast looked like it would be another nice neutral for autumn outfits. Honestly after feeling a bit ho-hum about Vice (the polish, not the amazing palette) I didn't have grand expectations for this one to be as complex on the nail as it is in the bottle. Did this shade impress or did history repeat itself? Find out below!
I'm so happy to report that Addiction indeed was a beautiful polish all-around and very much trumps its sister Vice. The shimmer in this one is just as vibrant as in the bottle and looks like it is loaded with both silver and pale gold glass flecks which warm up the olive green base. This particular green isn't what I'd normally gravitate toward but it ended up being sparkly yet neutral enough to look classy since it doesn't pull too much attention. It should meld perfectly with this season's military trend.
Here I used a base of OPI Nail Envy, 2 coats of Addiction, and topped it off with Seche Vite. I found this polish to be quite smooth and easy to apply and it also had pretty good lasting power as well.
Check out the beautiful skull cap with flower eye sockets. Really a nice, artistic detail. If interested, you can pick this up for $15 at Sephora, Macy's, and beauty.com.
