OC with Depression

You know I like to layer sheer polishes over black, right? That's exactly what I did with Sally Hansen Opulent Cloud. Layering it over black gives it more depth, but on the other hand, it loses it's lavender base. See for yourself:

Index & Middle Finger: Sally Hansen Opulent Cloud over black
Ring & Pinkie Finger: Sally Hansen Opulent Cloud (on it's own)




Thanks for looking!

  1. It lose a lot of subtlety and mystery over black. I prefer the ghostly floating feel it has on its own. What about you?

  2. I agree with you, but I couldn't say which one is my favourite. I like the depth when layered over black, but I also like the ghostly (like you said) feel that it has by itself. I just can't say... :)

    Try layering it over a vampy purple like S-he 464, that might give it the depth and keep the purple tone. Or it might not. lol

  6. Haha =) I laughed =)))
    It's a beautiful gunmetal grey on the black, but definitely not opulent cloud anymore. How about trying it on a shade like Parlez-Vouz OPI? A greyed lavender base would maybe bring forth the purple hue in it =)

  9. :) Yeah, it's not OC anymore. I don't have Parlez-Vous, but I'll try over similar shade sometime in future. Thanks for recommending it! :)

  10. I kind of love it equally, compared to the rest of your commenters o_o. It isn't OC, but it's an entirely different sort of complex, I think. Like OC's brash younger sister. I need to try this out. :)

  13. Very interesting over black. It's a subtle difference. Good idea to do that.
