Zoya - Veruschka and Nyx - Purple Ave.

APPLICATION: Smooth
COATS: 1 thick coat of each
TOPCOAT?: Eventually, yes.
SOURCE: Zoya.com and downtown Los Angeles nail supply store respectively.
COMMENTS: I'm starting to think dark greens like this don't really suit my skin tone.  Either way, the color of Veruschka is still pretty, but I much preferred the way it looked while wet to the matte finish. Purple Avenue turned into gorgeous green and aqua flakies over this. I planned to keep the top part matte, bit didn't like it, so I threw on some rhinestones and topcoat.
