OPI Electric Eel Is A Slippery One
I'm kind of disappointed in my pictures of this polish more than anything else. This is a sheer green shimmer with gold/pink duochrome. The duochrome is nicely obvious to my eye, but not so easy to photograph. I tried different light, I tried moving my hand around, but no such luck. I think maybe if I try it over black next time, it will be easier to capture the duochrome effect.
This is also five coats of this polish, I should warn you. I quite like the look of it at five coats, but I admit, it doesn't look so hot in the pictures. So next time, a layer or two of black will go under this baby. I think it will be worth it, it's really pretty!
Electric Eel applied nicely anyway, despite needing five coats. If you have the chance to get this, I would pick it up. I think it will look great over black or navy. I did try it quickly over Essie Pretty Edgy and it looked amazing! I will be posting that combo eventually as well.
