I recently hit up my local drugstore looking for Revlon Royal. The nail blogosphere almost universally recommends Royal as the underwear of choice for many fancy duochrome polishes, including the infamous Clarins 230. What I didn’t realize, is that it is the most amazing deep, bright and luminous blue jelly. I am in love!
After applying 3 thin coats of Royal, I couldn’t bare to cover up its luminous beauty totally, so I decided to just sponge the tips of my nails for a little pop of colour. I used Quo by Orly Celestial Star, which is a very fine glass fleck polish which sparkles with deep purple and blue. I sponged just enough to give a stardust effect. Over that, I layered my favourite flakie polish ever, Nfu Oh 51. If you ever feel like splurging on a more exotic flakie polish, 51 should be it. It looks like a nebula in deep space over blue, it looks like blazing coals over vampy reds and purples, it’s just amazing.
In person, this combination of polishes glow and shine even more! Everywhere I went today I got compliments. I think that Royal is going to see many repeats, it is such an enchanting colour.
