OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons and Lush Lacquer Paradise Cove - Swatches and Review

Ever have a layering combo that doesn't go as planned?  Well, I forgot that Lush Lacquer's Paradise Cove has a tinted base... whoopsie! I thought I would still show you the photos so you can see how it changes the color of your base polish.
 I started out with 2 coats of OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons from the Fall 2012 Germany Collection.  If you are not careful you may need 3 coats of this one as it did streak/drag a little bit, but it wasn't too hard to make it lovely in 2 coats :)  I really like this color, too.  It is a smooth nude creme that I think would be flattering on many skin tones.  I am going to get a lot of use out of this one for sure!
 I added one coat of Lush Lacquer Paradise Cove to my ring fingers because you know I love my accent nails :)  It was super easy to apply and I didn't fuss around with the glitter at all. I am always impressed with Lush Lacquer!
I forgot that Paradise Cove has a tinted base and I'm not sure I love it as an accent to Don't Pretzel My Buttons so I am going to add it to all of my nails.  And, you can never have too much glitter, right? It is really pretty for fall.  I really want to try it over a dark brown.  I think that will be gorgeous .
You can find Lush Lacquer on Etsy.  The full size bottles sell for $8.75 and they have minis available, too.  Lush Lacquer is a mother/daughter business and they have this polish and many other beautiful polishes available right now.
