From the same collection as Sea Spray, Below Deck is supposedly a dupe to ChG’s Channelesque (No, I don’t have it), and I was curious to see just how awesome this colour was:
2 Coats of BD, no top coat. Bubbles again! I’d been using Essie First Base for my last few swatches cos I wanted to finish the bottle before I get a full sized Orly Bonder, and even though this base coat dries in like 5 seconds, it doesn’t give me a nice application over whatever polish I put over it. Argh
BD with some sunlight from my bedroom window, it was real sunny this afternoon 🙂 I think I’ve seen this colour many times before. The application was ok, not too runny, not too thick, unlike Sea Spray. BD is a purply taupe, which kind of reminds me of OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacques, only BD is more purple while OPI’s is more brown. Both give off a chic look.
Actually, BD is purple enough that I may need to compare this colour with OPI’s Parlez-vous OPI? soon. Anyone interested in a comparison swatch, holler!
