365 Days of Color: Boouk!

Okay, super excited to post this one - today I have my first ever 365 Days of Color polish purchase - Boouk! This is THE perfect Fall polish, and I'm seriously in love - it looks JUST like Winifred's spellbook from Hocus Pocus. I'm also excited because Hocus Pocus is currently DVR'd and waiting for me at home! Honestly, Halloween cannot pass without me watching this movie since the time it came out - I love it!!

Okay, this polish is glorious. It's got a sheer, shimmering nude base with gold, brown, and copper hexes and squares in various sizes.

And now onto the nails! I'd seen this polish on it's own and layered and I think I prefer the look of it layered. Plus, I'm a fan of layering because it conserves polish! In the following photos, I layered  about a coat and a half of Boouk! over OPI Did You Ear About Van Gogh? I think these two went perfectly together!

And a picture in the sun! I absolutely loved this mani, and I feel like it could be work appropriate for those of us who need to tone it down during the work week! (Thankfully that doesn't apply to me because I wear some pretty crazy colors!)

  3. This is really a pretty understated look but still gives you a little 'bling'! The best of both worlds! :)
