Now that's a much better summer colour! Put on my nails following After Eight. Another one of Herôme's W.I.C., this is 'Edinburgh'; after the city in Scotland. I figure with my red hair I should be able to pull this one off, right?
It's an interesting, shimmery green with gold and blueish tones in the right light. Unfortunately, though, it's also pretty sheer. I used 4 coats to get it to a state of opaqueness I was content with. That's probably off-putting to a lot of folks but I'm not too bothered by it. Seems a waste of a pretty polish to not.. waste it.. in such a fashion - that made sense to me originally.

Another untried down, many more to go.

Artificial light - flash.
