NOTD: Kotori

Am I the only one that thinks of Atari when I hear the name of this polish? I'm hoping you all know what Atari is... I went back to my un-tried drawer and pulled out Zoya's Kotori. Why hadn't I used this sooner? It's awesome! I know Mari is probably thinking: "Told ya so!" I took this polish from her months ago! The last time she realized I still had it I got a very sharp: "You haven't worn that yet!?!?!" *hides* LOL! Zoya describes this as a dense bright blue shimmer superimposed over a sheer black base. You notice how sheer the base is as soon as you put on the first coat. I applied 3 coats for even coverage. There is something different about this polish. Its bright even though its dark. Does that make sense? The blue shimmer almost looks like it has different tones of blue. Some of the black base covers shimmer from the coat underneath it. So that covered shimmer is darkened a bit while the shimmer from the top-most coat is still very bright. I think that causes a really cool effect on the nail. Point of the story: Get Kotori! (Ha Ha, I made a rhyme!)

Beautiful color! And yes, I remember Atari! I have a game that looks like the Atari controller that you can just hook up to a TV and it has several Atari games you can play. A friend bought it for me several years ago knowing that I love "nostalgic" items. Scary that something from my childhood is now considered nostalgic. And I was a bit older when it came out!

I love, love, LOVE this color!! It's kind of a pain in the butt to deal with (at least mine is) but the payoff is so worth it. Gorgeous!! Yep - I remember Atari. Good times.
