Muffin Monday!! O.P.I DS Coronation and Zoya Raven Holo Splatter

Happy Muffin Monday!!!!

  Today Muffin picked me one of my oldest O.P.I's. I was so excited when she picked me this because I had not worn this since like August of last year.

 So this time around I decided to layer DS Coronation over Zoya's Raven to bring out the holo sparkle even more. I saw Jen the Polishaholic do a splatter mani using CND Effects over Black that looked amazing and I wanted to emulate the same feel of that mani by using this DS Coronation for the splatter. In person this is sooo freaking cool!
DS Coronation really comes to life when layered over other colors. It's a scattered Silvery holo and it's just beautiful. The formula on this is easy to work with and can be built up to opacity on its own. On my Ring finger I have Three coats of Coronation over Raven.
Kind of Blurred to show sparkle
This one shows the Subtle Holo.
 And here is a swatch of Zoya's Raven. This baby is a pitch Black creme with the most subtle pearly shimmer. This pretty is opaque at Two coats and has a decent formula. It is slightly thick but not hard to work with. This also dries slightly dull so a top coat is a must. UH-mazing!
Happy Muffin Monday!!

  2. Wow, this is an awesome look! I have to admit, I don't remember my Raven drying matte. I will have to remember to check it out the next time I wear it.

  14. Amazing! I love the splatter effect. You know what it reminds me of? Granite, but way prettier. You know the way the colors are marbled? It looks really cool! I hope I'm making sense :-/
