Up With A Warm, Electrifying Howl

Here is yet another one of my "keep throwing polish on it" manicures.

Day 1:  Applied 2 coats of Spa Ritual Howl.  After the first coat I thought this was going to be a disaster because the brush was stiff and the streaks were insane, but after 2 it really came out nicely.  What was disappointing is how little of that shimmer showed up on the nail.  It is a nice deep brown, sure, but it wasn't what I was expecting.

Howl on its own.  See all that shimmer in the bottle?  No where to be found on the nail.

Day 2:  Applied 1 coat of OPI Warm and Fozzie on top.  This is such a fun polish with so many pretty shimmers.  I was lucky enough to score this polish from the lovely Michelle from during her blog sale.

These show a good bit of the color shift on the nail with Warm and Fozzie on top of Howl.

Day 3:  I really did love the manicure, but I was getting ready to take it off because I had a girls night to attend and I wanted to do a different mani, but earlier in the day I had thought how much the colors in Warm and Fozzie reminded me of China Glaze Electrify, so I sponged some on the tips to see how it would look.

Day 3b:  This was a big bowl of meh so I added one coat of UP Viagem a 2 Flakie, which really changed the look of Warm and Fozzie, I need to try these two together next time.

What do you think?  Which day is your favorite?
