I have Velvet Rope - a rich creamy deep red, Blue Slate - a creamy, slightly teal colored blue, and Provenance - a creamy muted lilac. Yes, they're all creamy. Despite my newfound affection for metallics, I couldn't resist the richness in appearance of these cream texture ones! I tried Velvet Rope when I was changing my color each week, so I'll try it again along with the other two for my blog - to test ease of application, dry time, shine, and wear.
First up Provenance. It looks a little grayish in the bottle, but applies as a muted lilac. The application of these is a little thicker than your average nail polish, but not unworkable. Just make sure you have enough polish on the brush to just coat the nail, but not too much or it will never dry. On to that matter, as long as you apply 2 not too thick coats, the dry time is average.
Here is end end result with 2 costs and Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Top Coat. I applied this on 1/12/12, and will keep it on until 1/21/12.
Happy long lasting, high shine primping!
