Kunimitsu Nail Potions - Calico

My new camera arrived yesterday, so I played around with it long enough to figure it out for today's post. I'm super excited with how my photos are turning out with it already! To put it to the test, I used a polish that my old camera would have a difficult time focusing on - something with lots of tiny glitter.

I'm new to Kunimitsu Nail Potions, but I bought quite a few to try out. They are all so gorgeous, but I thought this one in particular was perfect for fall time and Halloween coming up! Although it's black and orange, it is called Calico, like a calico cat.

I can take awesome bottle shots now too! Calico is a clear base filled with lots of tiny glitter. It has small black hexes along with metallic orange hexes, and it has some even finer white glitter too. I'm always really drawn to polishes with lots of super fine glitter!

I applied two coats of Calico on top of two coats of Essie's Chinchilly. I wanted to pick a neutral base color so I could appreciate Calico itself, but also see the black and white. This warm gray tone seemed perfect! Since it's made up of very tiny glitter, it's easy to smooth out. I applied a coat of Seche Vite on top, and it's almost perfectly smooth.

I'm very happy with this polish, and I'm so happy that I got more from Kunimitu Nail Potions to try too! You can check out Kunimitsu on Etsy and snag some of her polishes at a reasonable $8 each. Also follow Nail Potions on Facebook to get updated too!
