Pop Culture Cosmetics Bah Humbug

Hey guys! Today I have another holiday polish from Pop Culture Cosmetics to share with you. Bah Humbug is a mix of green/red/silver small/medium hexes, some shiny/holo/matte and holo silver microglitter in a black-tinted base. I layered it over a random silver foil polish from American Eagle, I believe -- and would you believe it is actually the only plain silver foil polish I own, despite it being such a staple in so many collections? Anyway, check it out!

On my nails:
1 coat Innisfree Eco Peel-off Base coat
3 coats nameless silver from American Eagle
2 coats Pop Culture Cosmetics Bah Humbug
1 coat Seche Vite

First of all, I apologize for all indoor pictures -- we were out and about a lot today, and that combined with bad weather (it's supposed to snow tonight hopefully!) kept me from getting my standard outdoors shots. As for the mani... I can't say I love this one as much as I had hoped I would. I hadn't initially realized the glitter base was tinted black -- very very lightly, but enough that it darkened the silver base somewhat unevenly, which isn't what I expected. I do love the abundance of holo microglitter though -- check out this super dark shot, and how the glitter still shines through:

Isn't that lovely? :) I'd say that it probably isn't the fault of the polish for my lack of love for this mani -- it has all the right makings, it just wasn't properly executed. Next time I would use this over a darker color probably, and things would go swimmingly :)

Have a great day! ♥

  1. I think this mani looks beautiful. Looking forward to seeing what it looks like when you change it up.
