Oh Baby! You Looks So Fine Over Smokes and Ashes

I know the title of this post is rather corny but I promise that it is totally relevant to the post. The other day I was at Wal-Mart to pick up some groceries and home necessities and I came across this nail polish from Pure Ice. Oh Baby! is like a hidden treasure that I am sure many would overlook. However, it was the only polish that caught my eyes. When you look at the bottle all you see is a sheer, milky polish with pearlescent teal, blue, and purple shimmers. I had a hunch that it would look nice layered over another polish so I scooped it up and put it in my cart.

The other night, I was swatching China Glaze Smoke and Ashes. This polish was from the Hunger Games collection and I got it from Sally Beauty on sale for a couple bucks. Smoke and Ashes looks dark and mysterious. It's a dark polish with fine green sparkling shimmers. It took two coat for an opaque even coverage; however, I was a little disappointed. The base color is so dark that it conceals the beautiful shimmers in it, making them barely noticeable.

I decided to layer Oh Baby! over Smokes and Ashes and that was instant gratification, haha. Take a look at how gorgeous the blue shimmers of Oh Baby adds a totally new life and depth to Smoke and Ashes. There is a little also a bit of duochrome action from Oh Baby, making me love it even more.

I know many people do not like sheer nail polishes and I don't either but there are certain sheer beauties that are worth picking up because they can look really pretty when paired with another polish. Oh Baby! is one that I would recommend that you try.

What is your favorite layering nail polish?

  1. Gorgeous! Smoke and Ashes looks lovely on it's own too. I don't have a specific favourite top coat polish but I'm just obsessed with flakies!
