OPI ~ Umpires Come Out At Night

Good morning! I hope everyone had an awesome weekend and continues to have a nice relaxing Sunday! As usual here in Connecticut we are expecting snow later today. We have had snow once a week (at least) consistently for 6 weeks now! I am so over it! I have to do a post to help me forget about it so today I bring you, OPI Umpires Come Out At Night. I also added a shimmer topcoat from Orly just because it was a great match! Lets start with UCOAN. I went to the OPI site and it says that this is a crème polish. I really thought it was a crelly by the super smooth way it applied. It is so creamy and shiny. I picked this up because it reminded me so much of Revlon Royal. Turns out its darker and not as bold. That's fine with me. Who doesn't love blue polish?! For this swatch I used 3 thin coats plus topcoat. I didn't need the third coat at all. Not even to even out the polish. I'm just weird like that lol. Look how gorgeous!!!

Here I have 1 coat of Love Each Other from Orly Over UCOAN. To me, it looks like very fine pink and blue shimmers in a clear base. Now, because of the mix of color shimmers, it flashes violet. I love it!  I used glossy topcoat for all but the ring finger. I used matte on that finger so you could see the shimmer!

What a standout combo!! Hope you enjoyed my random Sunday morning swatch!!
