I decided to go with a color to match my dress, but also something that I haven't gotten to try out yet: Revlon - Carbonite. I got this polish from the Central Florida blogger meetup from another lovely lady who didn't want it anymore! It wasn't a sponsor item, but it certainly caught my eye.
Carbonite is a lovely dark silver color. It goes on smooth, and has tons of super fine glitter in it for a beautiful shimmer. It can look really dark in the shadows, and then all of the fine glitter catches the light to make it look like a much lighter and brighter silver too. This is two coats of it topped with SV, but one was almost enough to do the job itself!
My dress is also a pretty dark silver color, so I figured I would give this a try to see if I could match it. It's actually pretty close in person (though I didn't take pictures of my dress), so I think I nailed it!
But whenever I think of the name "Carbonite," I can't help but think of this...
Naturally, my Star Wars side had to come out. But I suppose this color is also pretty representative of the carbonite that Han Solo was frozen in too!
Revlon's Carbonite is actually a pretty fantastic color. It applies nice, it looks pretty, and I can't get over the name. If I had seen it in stores, I would have definitely nabbed it myself!
