Rococo Nail Apparel in Re-Issue: Total Plummy Berry Gorgeousness

My most recent manicure is with Rococo Nail Polish in Re-Issue, a gorgeous classic rich plummy wine with a bit of shimmer/pearl. I can't stop looking at my nails and can say this is the best pick-me-up of the week. I don't think I've ever been this happy with a manicure before.

The color is probably very dupe-able, but I love it. It reminds me of colors like OPI's NYPD Beet, Yankee Pankee Plum, Nars Gimme Shelter - but not quite as vampy since it has a reddish undertone. The shimmer in it has a pearl finish (versus frost/chrome) which I really like. Here it is with multiple views with 3 coats with Seche Vite top coat. It's photographed with my Louis Small Agenda in the Violette Vernis.





I am trying to post dupe swatches/photos but it's been cloudy and raining like crazy here, so the lighting is not cooperating with me! I will try and update with another duplicate/comparison post in the next week.

  10. Hi ladies! Thanks for your kind comments!

    Eunice - I'm not the expert on nails, but I have been testing out a few base/top coats. I've tried MAC, OPI, Chanel (new formula) and Seche. So far, my favorite is Seche Clear Base coat + Seche Vite Top coat. I definitely see a difference when I use the right kind of base/top coat.
