Swatch - OPI Can't Find My Czechbook

How about a nice change up while we are getting into fall. Yes, browns, plums, reds are fitting for this season but a nice shock of colour never hurt anyone. Actually, I have been finding it rather difficult to judge just what season it is over here. On weekends it is warm but during the weekdays it seems to be cold. Very odd. Then again this probably has something to do with the fact that I hardly see daylight during the work week...that sounds kind of depressing so let's get on to polish!

Pst! You can find a comparison post on this polish here.

OPI Can't Find My Czechbook:
Robin egg blue cream. The polish was released this past spring as part of the Euro Centrale collection. There is a slight dusty quality to the colour making it slightly darker than the bottle colour. (The dustiness also does not show up in the bottle colour). This quality makes this shade more muted and wearable, in my opinion. Pictures show two coats without top coat.

Formula - Great, easy application, self-leveling
Pigmentation - Good, 2 coats
Shine - Yes
Prone to - Nothing
Staining - None
Removal - Easy

I usually do not go for blues, but lately have been crazy about them. This polish is no exception and is more flattering against my skintone than expected. CFMC isn't a unique colour but a great addition to any collection if you do not own something similar.

How do you feel about blue nail polish? Do you tend to gravitate more to a certain shade of blue?

NOTD - Neon Colour-Changing Maze

There is a fun manicure to be shown today! There's nail art stamping and colour changing polish all in one mani. This was super fun to wear in the summer (yes, I did this awhile back); not only due to the colour-changing polish but also the fun, bright colours. The stamping is atrocious on a couple fingers, but I am very pleased with the others. Hope you guys enjoy this mani~

Mani Composition:
Ruby Wing Green Peace and Poppy
Stamping was in OPI Black Onyx using Gals Fairy Set plate GA31

Pictures below show the index and middle finger exposed to the sun. The mani becomes so cool with the colour contrast! I especially love the green one.

Gosh, looking at these pictures makes me miss stamping. I should do some in the near future. Why, why must I need so much sleep! There would be so many more hours in a day for nails. Anyway, hope you guys like this mani as much as I did. I highly encourage you guys to do some nail art with these colour-changing polishes. It makes the nail art even more cool!

Have you incorporated colour-changing polish with nail art?
