China Glaze First Mate w/ OPI Servin' Up Sparkle

Love this combo! This is 2 coats of China Glaze First Mate with 1 coat of OPI Servin' Up Sparkle, and 1 coat of Seche Vite. Both were in my untrieds pile...I wasn't sure how the combo would turn out but I think it looks great!
First Mate is awesome, nice and pigmented. Not too dark...perfect shade of navy. Kinda reminds me of OPI Roadhouse Blues, but a lot less purple...more like a cross between RB and OPI Ski Teal We Drop, maybe? Haha. Two coats looked perfect, and the formula was just exceptional.
Servin' Up Sparkle really surprised me. It doesn't look that special in the bottle, just like small silver glitter with some silver hex glitter thrown, yeah, I was wrong. It's great. It's tiny silver holo glitter with some larger silver hex in a clear base, and it's just gorgeous. Looked sooo pretty over First Mate, reminded me of planets and space and a starry night or Formula on it was pretty great as well. I thought about blinging it out more with 2 coats, but I didn't want it to be too much. I think it turned out awesome.
So yeah...this mani was an unexpected win, lol!

Sincerely, Cat
