Pick A Polish: NYC - Skin Tight Denim

Hi loves. How is everyone? I am glad to have the evening to myself to relax :).

It's that time of the week again.. which means it's time for Pick A Polish. This week it is the turn of NYC - Skin Tight Denim.

For swatches and nail art read on after the jump.

I haven't used this polish much before (this seems to be a theme with a lot of my polishes). But I do love the colour so I am not really sure why.

Skin Tight Denim is a dark blue polish with an almost metallic finish (I'm not quite sure how to explain it). This photo shows 2 coats without topcoat, as you can see it is pretty shiny. The formula was a tad thick and if I went over the same patch twice I got bald patches, so you need to make sure each coat is dry with this one. 

Now for the nail art..

I filled in half of each nail with Color Club - White.

I freehanded the red stripes using China Glaze - Hey Sailor.

Finally I added the gold stripe using a striping brush with an unnamed W7 - Gold.

I didn't intend it but these have a rather nautical feel to them, due to my colour choices. That isn't something I would generally go for but I have to admit I quite liked it. My freehand has definitely been improving lately, I never would have been able to paint stripes like this a few months ago.

What do you think?

Thanks for looking.
