Ruby White Tips Misfit Toys duochrome nail polish

***press sample***


Here is an exciting change for me - my first duo chrome! The lovely Laura from RubyWhiteTips sent me a new color called Misfit Toys. It is a duo chrome that is predominantly purple which shifts to green with hints of gold and mustard yellow.

The formula is easy to work with and self levels although it is very sheer. After a bit of experimenting, I discovered a good quality ridge filler worked best to both smooth out my ridges, which are not attractive when wearing a duo chrome, and serve as a neutral base/undies. This color can also be worn as a topper over black for a richer, more intense look. I wanted you to see it in all it's unadulterated beauty so I chose a skin toned base to best show it's lush, fire-tipped hotness.

I have applied 2 coats of Essie Fill The Gap to create a tonal base for no VNL and 3 coats of Ruby White Tips in Misfit Toys.


Look at the amazing detail on the bottle. Who doesn't love a little sparkle? What a sweet addition. And now I can very easily find this bottle among a sea of tops ;) Great idea ☼
