Street Wear Bare It

Today I've got one of the polishes from my Street Wear haul a few months back.

Here's Bare It, a light gold duochrome polish with gold glitter. It shines both gold and pink, a very pretty combination. It reminds me a bit of tarnished metal and, in a way, opal (only the pink range of opal, not the blue and green). I got quite a few compliments on it, so it must be pretty!

This is two coats of Bare It layered over a couple coats of China Glaze's Liquid Leather. I knew it was going to be thin, so I figured black would help it stand out a bit more (though I'm sure it would look subtle and chic on its own). All of my Street Wears apply fussy, and this was no exception, though it wasn't impossible. It dried somewhat slowly, and of course I dinged my index finger about thirty seconds after taking these photos.

Despite the application hurdles one must tackle to apply older polishes like Street Wears, these are totally worth it - not only for the nostalgia, but also for the unique colors and finishes. I wish Revlon still made this funky range of lacquers, as I think they are even more unique than a lot of polishes currently being made.
