OPI - This Gown Needs A Crown (Miss Universe Collection autumn 2013) together with OPI - Fiercely Fiona (Shrek Forever After Collection sring 2010)

The moment I saw the Miss Universe Collection, I needed all three polishes! First up is This Gown Needs A Crown, it's a satin finish laquer and it does not need a topcoat. It has indeed a velvety feel to it. A few days ago I was wondering how I should discribe the colour....it is silver but softer and it has something extra, but what was it? I was on my bike during this train of thoughts and my bike just happens to have a brushed aluminum steering wheel. When I saw my nails next to the aluminum, >click<  there it was: TGNAC looks and feels like brushed aluminum!

Very cool!

I did not want to combine TGNAC with one of the other polishes from the collection, that was just too obvious. I wanted something light and fresh and happy, so I choose Fiercely Fiona. The fresh lemon yellow combines perfectly with the soft silver and I wore this combination for almost a week!
In Fiercely Fiona I found the yellow I was looking for for a long, long time. Most yellows are way too sunflower yellow (too much orange), my ideal yellow needs a dash of green and a hint of dirty....enter Fiercely Fiona.

This mani was three coats of TGNAC and four of FF, it was very, very thin but easy manageable and perfecly opaque after four coats....
