Mom treated me to a salon manicure which I’ve been staying away from for bout 4 months now in order to save for blog goodies. Meet the blue counterpart of my beloved Nyx polish Purple Noir (which has sadly been laid to rest, sniff* someone unintentionally dropped it) China Glaze “Up All Night”. This shade is available for a manicure or simple polish change at Tinette & Co. Salon where a lovely lady named Lynn painted what looks like the evening sky onto my nails.
The color is a rich dark navy blue with a hint of iridiscence within that’s more of an after thought and doesn’t steal the show.
When Lynn applied it, the consistency was thin but smooth and pigmented, opaque on the second coat. She started and finished my nails with Orly Top to Bottom base and top coat. This shade is deep and rich enough to appreciate this “fall” season, both mom and I think it’s really lovely. I got a bit of tip wear already as you can see in the photo but that was like…two days later? I still have it on now and though there’s a bit of nail growth and my thumbnail has cracked a corner I am still appreciating it for as long as I can.
