Well, for Essie Penny Talk version 3.0 is for those who like their mani's a little bit darker but still with some bling in it. To mix it up a little I wanted to use OPI Black Spotted which is a bubble type top coat that was only release in Belgium last year! Of course I had to get my grubby little hand on it when it was released but lucky for people out there Layla cosmetics have come out with a version called Layla Bubbly. I saw it for sale on ozsale.com.au the other day,so keep an eye out for it. The other place I see Layla polishes are at Hairhouse Warehouse.
So, for today's look layered OPI Black Spotted over the Essie Penny Talk patina look. Black Spotted is a little tricky to apply. After my top coat of Poshe I waited until it was completely dry and applied a very thin layer of OPI Black Spotted. I think I was half successful with this look- the middle two fingers are my favorite!

This mani was definitely more Now, you HAVE to top coat OPI Black Spotted. How do I know? Well I thought I would see how much wear and tear Black Spotted could take..and after just one day of not particularly arduous wear, this is what my Black Spotted/Penny Talk mani looked like:
I actually thought this effect was rather interesting..in a creative artistic kinda way :) So, what did you think of Black Spotted over Penny Talk? Love, like or loathe..I would love to hear your thoughts..
