Color Combos CTW511 over OPI Blue My Mind

Hello, this is Alicea here with a swatch of one of the polishes I picked up in Hong Kong; Color Combos CTW511, over my first OPI polish, Blue My Mind.

The Color Combos polish is a sheer blue jelly based polish with iridescent flakies.  Blue My Mind is a beautiful sapphire blue shimmer (in some lights, the bottle looks like it has a purple duochrome shift), and is opaque in two coats.  I layered two coats of the Color Combos flakie over the top of two coats of Blue My Mind, finishing with Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

Both polishes went on easily (the Color Combos has a nice wide brush), and it's crazily sparkly in the sun!

I also tried the flakie on over a bare nail, and it's so sheer that it wouldn't reach opacity by itself.

Notes on wear time and removal: I wore this polish for four days, I believe, and I was very impressed with the wear time!  By the fourth day, I only had minimal tipwear and some small chips; it was still wearable without making me cringe.  There were no issues with removal.
