I've had this post waiting for two days... just been so busy that I haven't been able to post. Been busy baking Christmas cookies-- and attending my husband's company Christmas party. Tonight I have the second polish from the Cult Nails Deceptive Top Coat Collection, Two Timer. Coincidentally, I had these pictures all ready to go before Pantone announced that their color of the year for 2013: Emerald! Cult Nails Two Timer is a "sheer top coat that enhances your existing color by casting a beautiful emerald shimmer over it." While this has a yellowish appearance in the bottle, you can see the greenish sparkle to it.
Here I have layered one coat Two Timer over American Apparel Hassid. It was very easy to apply and I didn't have any issues at all. I'm generally not a huge green fan, but I like the deep emerald color and how shimmery it is.

Of course, as of yet I have to try this over other colors, but I think this would really pretty over a teal or deep hunter green, in addition to grey or blue! I'd also like to see this over a dark red or purple. So many possibilities-- hopefully I'll have some time in the new year to play around with it.
