Get Pitted by Carpe Noctem Cosmetics

Carpe Noctem Cosmetics is still out for blood this year. She is continuing the assault on our wallets with the spring crop of awesomeness. Today, I have a simply complex polish to share that will make your jaw drop.

Get Pitted is a soft azure holo polish with a pink shift, tropical turquoise flakes and a wash of holo glitter on top. It reminds me of tanzanite turned to 1,000. It applies smoothly and easily, and I barely needed two coats for the pictures below. I topped it off with a layer of Seche Vite and I was ready to rock. This is one of those shades that make me wish I had a good matte topper. I bet it would be breathtaking.

In the macros, you can see the teal flakes sparking.

I wish the sun had cooperated, but my poor flash will have to suffice.

I love CNC. The formula wears like iron on my nails, regardless of what base/topper combo I use. If you brows the tag here on the blog, you will see that Emily has such an unusual eye for colors...this brand is really the best-kept indie secret. Or it was...this might be the year that ends. I just don't see how we can keep this secret forever.

  4. This polish is so great! The shimmer has such a nice color-shift, too, but it is infuriatingly difficult to capture in a still.
