My profuse apologies for my super sporadic posting. I'm woefully unprepared to be a blogger because I generally don't have posts ready to go ahead of time, which is my own fault and now I'm trying to cram about a bazillion things in before we leave for the holidays on Saturday-- laundry, wrapping, cookie decorating, etc etc. Additionally, we were in Portland this past weekend for my sister in law's surprise 30th birthday so it's been a busy month! In any case, excuses aside, I just want to say thank you so much for reading my blog and I appreciate it so much! I'm afraid that my posting will continue to be sporadic through the rest of the year. I hope each and everyone of you has a very merry Christmas (or had a very happy Hanukkuh) and enjoy having some time off from work and time with your family!
Tonight I have the second to last top coat from the Cult Nails Deceptive collection, Doppleganger! This polish is described as a "sheer top coat that transforms your existing polish by giving it a "dusty" feel while adding a familiar multicolored shimmer." The dusty feeling definitely comes from the fact that this has a milky white base that houses the shimmer. This polish also cast a slightly greenish to my base color (American Apparel Hassid).
I had some issues Doppleganger, but it's not anything to do with the polish itself-- just my application. I found it was very easy to over-apply Doppleganger, and it's very noticeable over the dark base color. You can see on my ring finer where I got too much top coat on it. You definitely need to use a light hand with this. But the shimmer does look gorgeous on the nail!

And that's Doppleganger! I would definitely love to see this over a grey or a lighter base color. I have one more top coat to go!
