OPI I’m An Aqua-Holic & SoFlaJo Guardian of the Lake

Hi dolls, I finally decided to jump onto the indie polish train and several arrived over the weekend.

SoFlaJo Guardian of the Lake & Field of Clovers; Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker & Bayou Blitz; Elixir Lacquers Calypso, With a K, & Kind of Connery (for a polish friend)

Maybe I’ll make this an indie brand week. As I’m still wearing blues on Mondays this month for autism awareness, I wanted to wear SoFlaJo Guardian of the Lake. I started with OPI I’m An Aqua-Holic, which is an extremely sheer blue metallic polish. The color is so gorgeous in the bottle, but I think this may be better as a layering polish. I applied 4 coats…yes…4 coats. I usually don’t go over 3, but I really wanted to get to the bottle color. The formula was extremely thin.

Once again, this was 4 coats. After seeing these pictures, I was actually kind of glad that I was going to cover I’m An Aqua-Holic up anyway. SoFlaJo Guardian of the Lake is a top coat that has blue glitter that shifts from turquoise to blue to violet. It also has some holographic particles. Guardian of the Lake dried quickly to a very smooth finish. I applied one coat over I’m An Aqua-Holic.

This looks much, much better! I need to try Guardian of the Lake over some different base colors. This isn’t really the best combination to show the color shift, but I like it much better than I’m An Aqua-Holic alone.
