The first "fall" polish I have is Mexico City. It's red. And it's a linear holo. Wait!! I didn't mean for you to fall LITERALLY! ;)
Liz's inspiration for Mexico City was "The Fall" by Albert Camus, which tells the story of a respected lawyer's fall from grace after he sabotages his own good reputation. Mexico City is the name of a bar in the...uh...bad part of Amsterdam....hence the red color. :)
Are you "falling" yet? I thought as much... :) I love this polish. It's not a RED red, but it is a very unusual color. Of course, that gets another gold star from me. Indoors and in shade, it's a delicious mauvey-red with a hint of salmon. In the light, the color brightens and deepens.
And I discovered it's probably not a good idea to do holo posts at 11 p.m. :D BUT lucky me...I have a halogen spotlight in my office, so I got a rather awful phone picture of Mexico City, as far as the color goes, but it does show the linear holo:
|Look, Mom! I'm jaundiced!!|
There is no special base coat needed for Mexico City. The application was fantastically smooth and covered in 2 coats. And two other awesome things to note about this polish: I had no cleanup, and it's incredibly shiny.
A fall from grace may come as a result of many things...greed, envy, anger...nail polish addiction. Did I just say that? :)
