day one hundred and forty six, nubar iris dust opi movin' out

okay people this was suppoed to be an image heavy post but blogger aren't cooperating! nubar iris dust is another fantastic duochrome from the smarties at nubar, its a purple/orange duochrome and the effect is magnificent. i had an interview today so i wanted something subtle and decided to try a new shade (well...i've had this for a couple years i just haven't worn it yet) for my interview instead of going with a trusted fav (any of the ones i've mentioned!). i originally planned on just painting opi "movin' out" (after the AMAZING billy joel song...i think!) but it is a clear jelly with pink microglitter suspended throughout...because of the clear base i couldn't leave it on my nails alone since you could see how stained and yellow my nails are through the polish so i put on 3 layers of nubar iris dust followed by 1 more layer of movin out to give it some extra shimmer. the cool thing about movin out is that because it is a clear base it allows the microglitter to reflect whatever colour the nubar polish is reflecting. i thought it was really awesome and so i took a video just to demonstrate how much i loved the sparkle!! it definitely reminds me of one of the new CND effect polishes (the opi).

thanks guys!! i really like it too, i usually go with something more pinky or flesh toned and it was nice to have that subtle duochrome and shimmer to make looking at my hands mroe interesting! (although i refuse to look at my hands during an interview because it looks bad!)

i hope the interview goes well....i want to make it to the 2nd round!
