One week of possibilities : Essie Lapis of Luxury Day 2, OPI Rent

I have decided to experiment a little bit this week. I chose a nail polish, Essie Lapis of Luxury and I'll try and use it to post a different combo each day until sunday.
Today I have a subtle layering with OPI Rent.

Rent is a sheer slightly duochrome pink base with a green flash and silver microglitter flecks. It was released in 2003, as part of the Holiday on Broadway collection, it's a black label OPI, both pre B3F and prowide brush. Rent is now discontinued but you can still easily find it for a reasonable price, Transdesign still has it for $5,75.
Like I said, it is very sheer; over a very dark base, you'll see a bit of its duochrome but over a light color like Lapis of Luxury, you'll have a slight pink tone and those gorgeous silver flecks.

Overall :
Microglitter flecks are my favorite glitters ever so it's no surprise if I tell you that I can't get enough of this combo, the softness of Lapis of Luxury, the squishy and "out-of-the-pool-wet" look of Rent over it...
