Here's the other half of the Ruby Kisses polishes I had showcased and talked about here.
I mentioned that I had an idea for the remaining 2, Peach on Fire and She A Goldigger, and here it is!
I was inspired by the 'V-gap' style that is commonly seen on Nailside and used Peach on Fire as a base color with She A Goldigger as the 'V-shape'.
It was a relatively easy look to do since there are no intricate details and the flat, wide polish brush made everything so much easier.
I had expected She A Goldiggger to live up to the other shades and be more opaque with one swatch, however it is a different finish from the rest. One coat of She A Goldigger proved too sheer, hence I layered 2 coats of it and thankfully it still turned out okay. Sometimes with tape manis, 2 coats might cause problems when removing the tape.
Even with 2 coats, it's not quite as 'pow' a gold as I would have liked but I wasn't going to risk it with 3 and it's pretty enough!
I can't even start with how blindingly neon Peach on Fire is! Like the other 3 cream shades, it does dry down to a satin-ish sort of finish and for this color, I actually like how that finish looks.
Here's how it looks alone, without a topcoat over (1 1/2 coats):
The finish and bright tone of this shade makes it feel like something that belongs in Illamasqua's new Fall collection, Rubber Brights.
I didn't shed much light on She A Goldigger here but it is a lovely shade which I would probably use to layer over polishes for a fun effect. On it's own, I believe you may need 3 coats (or maybe even 4) for a full opaque finish.
The neon-ness of this is a fun color to wear but certainly not a go-to one for me. I wouldn't mind wearing this for a short while just to brighten my nails but a short while was honestly how long this got to live on my nails. After prancing around in neons for 2 days, I promptly removed this. Another reason for the quick removal was because I had a new nail distraction but I'll save that for another entry ;)
