ABC Challenge: D is for Depend #58


Happy Valentine's day sweeties! I hope you are having a great one :) you know mine is going to be low profile, so I'm keeping up with the blog.
Continuing with the "ABC Challenge", today I have another untried nail polish to show you. Today's choice is a Swedish brand called Depend, which is not super easy to find.

What is ABC Challenge?
It is a challenge, organized by Helena from Lacky Corner, we are doing with some Facebook fellows who love and collect nail polish and have a lot of colours that have never been tried.The scope of the challenge is to start using those untried nail polishes in alphabetical order! Today is the turn of letter "D".

So today, representing the letter D, I'm showing you Depend in #58 which is a rare combination of duochrome and scattered holo nail polish I got years ago in a nail mail from my dear polish pal Jezz (xoxo sweetie!). Shame on me for not trying it until now.


If you are at loss about what "scattered holo" means, then this post might help you. I've decided that weekends are great for sharing definitions and facts about nail polish, so I can release my inner teacher (but you can totally skip this part, if you want) (don't you dear!! lol) (I'm serious).

What is a "duochrome nail polish"? 
Duochrome polishes change color on the reflection of light. The effect is achieved by tiny particles in the polish interfering with the reflection and refraction of light from the painted surface.True duochromes are very obvious and often show 2 colors, but sometimes even more.
You see? There is SCIENCE in it! So next time someone bothers you about nail polish and/or call you "superficial" you have my permission to rub this in their faces tell them this definition ;-)


This duochrome scattered holo is a mauve-y rose shifting silver shade. The colour shift is very subtle but it is definitely there. Again, it is very office appropriate if you ask me. I painted two coats but did not have a nice light to show you the holo effect. Although the colour is not the most flattering against my skintone, I love it. I really need to try it over black next time!

Please, visit  my challenge mates here below for more beautiful nail polish swatches :)

Enjoy your Sunday!

Love,
Nati
