I survived the heat wave that invaded Europe last week! Phew… And now the weather decided to be very cool, which I like, and which made me crave for a darker colour. Actually, I wanted to show this colour for “Lacke in Farbe und bunt” when the colour of the week was Aubergine but I simply couldn’t fit that anywhere in my schedule. But I had already picked out the bottle and there it was, lonely on my desk, so I decided to put it out of its misery and put it on my nails anyways. And I must say, I didn’t regret it! Also, I recently found out about another blog challenge by Ina and Penguin Lacquer, and the theme is “Schwarz ist nicht gleich schwarz” (“SINGS”) which basically encourages you to show dark colours that aren’t really “only” black.
The Wow-Show (006) is a nail polish from the limited Bonnie Strange Collection by Manhattan that came out back in September 2013. I really liked this collection when it came out, some of the colours were really unique and the quality is also great! The Wow-Show can be described as a very dark aubergine/purple base filled with iridecent gold to orange to green glassfleck glitter particles. So pretty!
The application was good, only two coats were needed for opacity. This colour does not dry super-shiny because of the glitter it contains, so you might want to add a topcoat for ultimate shine. I used one coat of Seche Vite on top. I wore this for 2 days but it could easily have stayed on, so the wear is good!
I really love this colour and the glitter that really shines in the sun. It might look a little dark at times (someone thought i had painted my nails black) but if you love dark colours with a twist, then you will love this one as much as I do!
Since this colour is from an old Limited Edition, you will not find it in the stores anymore. But here and there you might be able to score it on a blogsale or at second-hand communities like Kleiderkreisel.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy weekend ❤
