Last Night's Drink: White wine (house)
Last Night's Nails: Nails Inc. Devonshire Row with Dior Rock Coat
Goooood morning! Welcome to your weekend! Did any of you kick the weekend off in a big way yesterday? A friend of mine won a party at Howl At The Moon in Universal City, so we all headed over there after work for cheap drinks, buffet food, and dueling pianos! If you've never been to a dueling piano bar - you need to go find one near you, STAT. They are so much fun! My hands-down favorite dueling piano bar will always be the Bar at Times Square in New York New York Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. I have great memories there, but Howl At The Moon is pretty awesome, too!
So for last night's mani, I started with Nails Inc. Devonshire Row. Devonshire Row is described as a "deep glossy lilac" which is pretty accurate. In bright sunlight it reads a lot more pink, but in artificial and low lighting it the lilac shines through. It has a creme finish and the great formula I love from Nails Inc. This is 2 coats of Devonshire Row:
Devonshire Row is very pretty on it's own, if a little delicate for my tastes. However, since we were going out, I needed it to have a little edge, so I whipped out a recent purchase, Dior Rock Coat. I purchased my first Dior polishes a few weeks ago, and one of the items other polish lovers had raved to me about was Rock Coat, a sheer gray layering polish meant to add edge to any mani or pedi. Take a look:
I am head-over-heels crazy about Dior Rock Coat! I love what it did for Devonshire Row, taking the polish from a bright summer's day by the pool to edgy with a slight vamp for the night. Expect to see Rock Coat making multiple appearances in the future here at Polish & Tonic!
Nails Inc. Devonshire Row is currently available at select Sephora locations and online at sephora.com (retails for $9.50/bottle). Dior Rock Coat was released this past spring as a part of the Dior Rock Your Nails Collection. It is a limited edition polish, so grab one while you can! If you can't find it in stores, it it's still available online at dior.com (retails for $19.50/bottle).
What do you think? Is Devonshire Row unique enough to keep on its own? Do you like the graying effect of Dior Rock Coat? What are your favorite polish layering combinations?
