As sort of a parting post...
let me share you another nail polish swatch - this time courtesy of Bobbie Premium Nail Creme in Salmon. This was part of the haul I had October 2012, and the reason why it took so long before I got to use this was because orange nail polish is not part of my comfort zone. I do know how dark my skintone is, and I truly fear wearing this would make my skin look darker. Sure, I did get to use OMG Crystal Sand with orange shade before, which made me doubt if I truly can wear an orange toned nail polish.
Bobbie is a trusted brand. This is actually my favorite local brand because it had everything I want in my nail polish - the brush was soft, the formula was easy to work with, and it dries in a fairly tolerable amount of time. On my nails are two coats of Salmon, without top coat. Lately, I am not using top coat because I change my manicure every three to four days, and because I already know how to work around the house without causing much damage to my manicure, I don't feel the need to use a top coat anymore... except maybe if the finish wasn't glossy. Since this one was glossy enough, I just let it be.
See you all on the other side!
