Adoree Oriental Coral

Adorée Nail Lacquer Oriental Coral #233 is actually orange, not coral at all. It’s exactly the same as Riding Hood (multi-sized duo-chrome glitter suspended in transparent jelly colored polish) but there is more pigmentation in the polish. Due to the higher pigmentation, Oriental Coral can be worn alone or layered. This swatch is only 2 coats. Oriental Coral also seems to have less of the duo-chrome quality that Riding Hood displays but it’s still very bling.

Adoree African Violet #193

Adoree African Violet #193

Adorée African Violet is super sheer, this swatch is 4 coats. I couldn’t get good pictures of the duochromatic effect but it is visible despite the sheerness. This color by itself with no colored base creates a greenish cast at some angles. It’s very pretty and seems to be a distant cousin of the coveted OPI Sugarplum Yum. Ultimately, due to my preference for opacity, this African Violet is probably not something that I would wear on its own but it’s a great color for layering.

Now, *this* is more like it. African Violet over black create amazing colors. African Violet over black is dark purple .

The swatch above is a representative of the green end of the chromatic spectrum.

Ok, another post of 4 Pinks from Adoree Nail Polish collection. This is a continuation from previous article “Pinks from Adoree Nail Polish #2″.   These nail polishes are available at Esther’s Nail Center.

Adoree Sheer PinkAdoree Deep Carnation #211Adoree Creme Hot PinkAdoree Wil Orchid #199

From left to right:

Adoree Country Pink #142 – A sheer pale pinks with gold iridescent tone. Show subtle pink on the nails. Also great for layering.

Adoree Deep Carnation #211 – Pretty, bright pink in creme. Great for summer also. Glossy.

Adoree Pink Fashion #178 – This  hot pink in creme will surely brighten up your day. It has more red to it than Adoree #211. Glossy.

Adoree Wild Lilac #199 – A light pink with shimmer, almost to chrome finish. I like this color. It’s delicate, sweet pink but shimmery enough to get attention. The color on the picture show the bluish tone but not on the application.

Ok, I hope these posts are a great opening for many more pinks to come. Happy spring!

Pinks from Adoree Nail Polish #2

This is a continuation from previous article “Pinks from Adoree Nail Polish #1”. I’d like to present another set of 4 pinks from Adoree collection. These nail polishes are available at Esther’s Nail Center.

Adoree #143 Hot LipsAdoree #164 Rose FreezeAdoree #212 BegoniaAdoree #213 Ribbon Pink

From left to right:

Adoree #143 Hot Lips – Just like it’s name this color is a hot pink with blue tone iridescent finish. More to satin look than glossy. It’s a vibrant color that would really show on nails.

Adoree #164 Rose Freeze – A perfect name for this pink since it hold a bit glitters in it. When applied on nail, it’ll show only subtle glitters.  A shimmer pastel pink. Because of the glitter characteristic, it may need some layers for even finish.

Adoree #212 Begonia –  I love this medium, dusty rose pink. It comes to a shimmer, almost metallic finish.

Adoree #213 Ribbon Pink – This is like the color of pale pink ribbon with subtle green iridescent look.  A very pale pink, similar to natural pink French Manicure.

Love pink? Couldn’t get enough?  Then wait for the next post of the other 4 pink shades.

Adoree Lemon Meringue #130

This color reminds me a bit of Maybelline Banana Puddin’: a slightly more saturated yellow and not as sheer. It still took four coats to even this out (and there are several spots where it still isn’t even). This was an NOTD for a couple of days and there was no chipping and virtually no tipwear at the end of the third day. Reviewed by Flinty from Polish or Perish blog.

Sheer Glitter Toppers

Have you ever purchased a glitter polish thinking it looked a little sheer… but that you might be able to get away with wearing three coats, only to discover that it’s really sheer, as in six-coats-to-opacity-sheer and now you don’t know what to do with it?

I buy these sorts of polishes on purpose, and they’re dead useful. I call them “sheer glitter toppers” and the following post will illustrate various ways in which you can use them.

Glitter Nail Polish

I’ve yet to find a sheer glitter topper that doesn’t look awesome layered over black. Almost all sheer glitters with large pieces of glitter in them will change color in the light, but it’s something that’s usually not visible until layered over a dark creme.

Sheer Glitter Polish

Pictured is one coat of black nail polish with one coat of Adorée’s “Riding Hood” over. In the bottle, “Riding Hood” appears orange with golden glitter, but when applied over black it flashes orange to green which is really cool. You certainly aren’t limited to black when applying toppers to get this effect, any dark creme will work. Last fall a lot of “nearly-blacks” were released, those sorts of colors will also work well to bring out the color-changing qualities in most sheer glitter toppers.

Adoree Wild Inkberry #234

In addition to layering sheer glitter toppers over black or nearly-black cremes, you can layer them over other glitter polishes in order to create new combination glitters. By that I mean, the final result will show the two different glitter colors mixed and it will appear as if your polish was initially made up of more than one glitter color. (Doesn’t it look like these two bottles had a little swatch baby?) If you get bored of the glitters you have, this is a simple and interesting way to make a “new” polish.

Pictured above is two coats of Adorée’s “Wild Inkberry” with one coat of Zoya’s “Vegas Freeze” on top.

Likewise, if you have a colored creme that you wish was a glitter, a sheer glitter topper will add shimmer to your polish without changing the creme color itself. Your base color will shine through while your sheer glitter topper adds a bit of interest.

Adoree Sheer Glitter #237

Finally, my favorite way to wear sheer glitter toppers are as French manicure polishes. While a traditional nude-tinted French manicure polish always looks nice, using a sheer glitter topper instead can turn a plain French manicure into something more interesting and fun, especially if you replace your white tips with a bright creme.

Pictured above is two coats of OPI’s “I’m Indi-a Mood for Love” as tips with one coat of Adorée’s “Ice Mist” over.

Whether you layer them over black, use them to transform other polishes into a new glitter variant or use them as French manicure polishes, sheer glitter toppers are extremely useful polishes to have in your collection.
