Advent Day 18: Essie 526 “Social Lights” + Rimmel 247 “Opal”

by Deborah

Besides finding “new” gems in my collection, I also decided to experiment with already loved nail polishes in this challenge. Today is one of those!

Essie’s “Social Lights” is a gorgeous nail polish colour that I’ve worn often already. It’s a greige colour, with an orange shift to it. Stunning, and very lovely on its own.

Rimmel’s “Opal” was, I believe, made to be a nail polish on its own. However, it’s way too sheer for that, which you can see in the above pictures. It’s a beautiful polish, however, making the base colour shift with some blue shimmer.

Unfortunately, the orange shine does not come through at all after applying Rimmel’s polish on top. I like the combination, but would have preferred a bit more of a multichrome finish. Alas!
