Remember when I told you all about Amour - Unique Ruby I ordered from Trans Design? If not, click here and refresh ya-self!

I thought I was going to have to wait until my nails grew out longer before I would be able to swatch this. However, I figured out a way to still be able to swatch this , even with my nails as short as they are. Yes, I was that excited to try this out. I just painted two fingers with the black polish base, and two fingers were left with out the black polish base. Then I just split my thumb nail in half, and painted half black and left the other side unpolished, before I went over all my nails with Amour - Unique Ruby.

The black polish I used.

One coat each of the Carolyn NY and the Amour.

My thumb nail with only half of it polished with Black Out In The Bronx.

I must say I am underwhelmed with this. After all the talk of Contrasting Absorption, and Dual Color Effects and Interference Reflection - I guess was just expecting something more, like what they claimed would happen. I even took pictures in the sun, thinking that was where it was going to really "WOW" me, especially since it claims this nail polish "turns light into color". Ho-hum! I actually thought the shade pictures looked better than the full sun pics.
I feel as though I could get this same effect using one of the new China Glaze Summer Collection nail polishes over black. The formula of the polish was good, I had no complaints with that at all. I feel like if you claim it will happen Amour, then dag-nab-it, that's what I expect to happen! HA!
Would love to hear if anyone else has tried this polish and what your results and thoughts on it are!

hmmm it's still nice - but like you said, you expect more from their promo of it :)

Brooke said...

NIXXY - That's my gripe, they just don't really do what they claim.

I was all excited about receiving mine yesterday, hmmm it's cute but upon seeing it I wouldn't have purchased it.

Brooke said...

CLOCKWORK - It still might work on a longer nail as a french tip design like they show. But yeah, I was disapointed too with it. I'm just glad it didn't cost too much and I only ordered one of them.

Lucy said...

Darn! I was expecting a big change. Guess I will save my money for other polishes.

Alexlyndra said...

The layering is beautiful!

Brooke said...

LUCY - Yes, save that money for when Lent is finally over!

ALEXLYNDRA - Thank yoiu.

Rachel said...

Well, that sucks! At least the color is pretty...

Brooke said...

RACHEL - Thanks :)

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.wilantion.ru]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
