Here’s a nail look that I did.

Blurred to show the gorgeous foil finish!!

I reviewed Zoya’s Daul a few weeks ago.  I kinda was lukewarm about this colour, BUT…..when I layered it with Sephora by OPI’s Metro Chic, which is a purplish-grey cream.  I was floored!! Such a stunning combination!!

The Daul picks up the purple in the Metro Chic, so it looks like a red-purple base and the shimmer effect is amazing!!! It has gold micro glitter with a prominent gold foil finish that also has some red microglitter mixed in.  And then it appears to be a duochrome.  I mean to say that it is very complex! These pictures don’t do it justice! I’ve been staring at my nails all day long!  This will get a repeat during the season.  Daul is like that dark horse that comes out of nowhere!!!

Until the next NOTD!!
