I have a beautiful combo today! This is American Apparel- Meteor Shower layered over OPI- "Sheer" Your Toys.
Gold and gray go so well together!
Both of these polishes played together very nicely. Meteor Shower is composed of gold foil shards. It almost reminds me of Christmas decorations or Goldschlager. It was very vibrant and the shards came in a variety of different sizes. American Apparel nail polish retails for $6 and can be purchased in the store or on the American Apparel website. Usually they have a deal where you can purchase three bottles for $15.
I had to take a picture of my left hand to show you how giant the gold flake was on my pinky! Only one coat of Meteor Shower was necessary. Application was fairly easy, but there are some pieces of the shards that are curled, so it's helpful to use a toothpick to press them down into the polish while it's still tacky. I topped this off with a coat of Gelous followed by a coat of Seche Vite so it stayed put!
Here is a picture of it without the flash in indoor light. The gold flakes are very reflective and "Sheer" Your Toys looks much darker here. I imagine that removal of Meteor Shower would be somewhat challenging, but mine peeled off because I used the white glue base coat method. I never want to go back to using foil again.
Here's a picture of "Sheer" Your Toys indoors with the flash before applying Meteor Shower over it.This color is beautiful! It has a very faint shimmer composed of silver shimmer particles with a slight hint of copper shimmer. It was released in OPI's 2008 Holiday in Toyland collection. This polish is sheer, but it builds up. The formula was a little bit thin but it's completely opaque in three coats; which is rather good for a polish with the word sheer in the name. I own nothing else like this shade. I was lucky to come across this polish dusty hunting, but AveYou still has it in stock for $8.50.
