Sonoma Nail Art Here Lies Robert - Swatches and Review

Good Morning! It's FRIDAY!

Today I have one of the polishes from Sonoma Nail Art's Halloween Collection 2012 - Here Lies Robert. My first Sonoma Nail Art polish! ♥

First a little background from Michelle at Sonoma Nail Art:

Sonoma Nail Art Custom Nail Polishes are inspired by the beauty of Sonoma County, California. Just an hour north of San Francisco, Sonoma County is a paradise for wine and food lovers, and blessed with great natural habitats from rolling hills covered with oak trees, to the vast Pacific Ocean. Sonoma County is also home to many great artists and thinkers. 

Here Lies Robert is part of my Halloween collection. Here Lies Robert is inspired by Sonoma County native Robert Ripley. Ripley was born in Santa Rosa and grew to fame with his very popular Believe It Or Not comic which was published in many newspapers. His fascination with the odd and strange ties in well with the spookiness of Halloween. Ripley is buried in the Oddfellows Lawn Cemetery in his hometown of Santa Rosa. Here Lies Robert is a glitter polish with black, moss, grey, and gold colored glitters. This polish is packed with color and works best as a top coat over other polishes. 

This polish is loaded with enough glitter so that you can get the effect in the swatch photos with just ONE COAT. As with all glitter polishes, you will need a few layers of top coat to get a smooth finish. 

Here Lies Robert is a glitter polish in a clear base - here I've layered it over butter LONDON Two Fingered Salute. One coat of glitter and one coat of Gelous for all photos. I had no issues at all with application - easy and smooth and I didn't have to dig for or "place" glitter pieces.
