Good morning!! It's pretty awesome when you get up to take your swatch pictures and return only to find that your cat has taken your chair. :p
I didn't think I needed another polish from China Glaze's Bohemian collection, having already gotten Rare and Radiant & Swanky Silk. Then I saw this post from Emma at Manicurity, a nail art mani done with the Deborah Lippmann Private Dancer and Sugar Daddy, the polishes ChG No Plain Jane and Swanky Silk are supposed to be reminiscent of, and I noticed something. The two colors are like the light and dark versions of each other, like one's the negative to the other's color print. How cool is that?
Clearly, I had to get No Plain Jane at that point and try a mix of the two for myself. But first, here's No Plain Jane in all its glory. ;) I used two coats.
You've probably heard by now that No Plain Jane isn't quite the duochrome it claims to be, but the sage green/honey brown to purple shift you see in the bottle does translate onto the nail, and it does so by giving this metallic violet a delightfully and surprisingly demure, dusky appearance.
The verdict? I like this one on its own, way more than I thought I would. Aren't surprises like this fun?
Here's my Sal Pal, before I unceremoniously removed her from my chair.
Thanks for reading, and have a lovely Thursday. ;)
