U-Neek Polish Part II: Penny

U-Neek: Part Deux! Another beautiful shade from U-Neek's Autumn Collection: Penny. 

Janet describes this one as "a copper base with copper sparks." Can't go wrong with that! Of all the possible metallic shades out there, copper is my absolute favorite. I'm not a big fan of orange (the closest "regular" color to copper), but copper it up a bit, and I'm all over it. 

Three coats of Penny, one coat of Out the Door, natural sunlight. 

VNL was not noticeable in person. 

Penny was a bit odd in a way that is difficult to describe. The mica (I'm assuming it is a mica) that was used to make the polish is not as fine as usual. When I applied the first coat, it was very sheer, and the color particles were quite larger than normal. It almost looked like a glitter polish with super-super fine glitter in a clear base. This is obviously not the case, as the color built to be smooth and opaque. This is in no way a criticism, and it's not a bad thing, but I've never seen it before, so I thought it worth mentioning. Of course, it could be as simple as: the base is sheer, so all I was seeing on that first coat were the "sparks". 

No issues to report. Application was perfect. Easy-peasy. Like Autumn, Penny is sheer, so if you don't like doing multiple coats or risking VNL, this would be best layered over a similar color. I think it would also do some gorgeous things over a red! 

Check out U-Neek Polish on Etsy and Facebook, and be sure to stop back tomorrow and Saturday for a different type of U-Neek Polish- glitter topcoats!

Support your indies, ladies!
