NOTD: mark Nailed It Trend Mini Nail Lacquer Duo {Gleam Scene + Tuxedo}

'Tis the season for nail duos and today I have another fabulous set for you featuring Gleam Scene {sparkling gold} and Tuxedo {high-shine black}. These two shades come from mark's Nailed It Trend Mini Nail Lacquers Duo; and are minis that contain enough polish for about 10 manicures / pedicures in each bottle. This is a gorgeous duo for the holidays - especially if you love nail art, as they can be worn together {as seen here}; but look just as glam when worn individually.

Two coats of mark Nailed It Trend Mini Nail Lacquer in Gleam Scene.

To be honest, I'm not a big fan of gold nail polish, and tend to use it solely as an accent or for nail art {which is likely what I will be using this shade for in the future}. That said, if you are a fan of gold polish, Gleam Scene is a great one for one very big reason: no brushstrokes.

If you're familiar with shades like this {semi-frosts}, you know that brushstrokes tend to run rampant in the formulas - that did not happen here. Gleam Scene goes on smooth, brushstroke-free, and fully opaque in two coats. The formula is slightly thick; but as long as you rub the brush on the rim of the polish bottle before application, very easy to work with. This is a great shade if you love the look of a neutral nail with a kick.

One coat of mark Nailed It Trend Mini Lacquer in Tuxedo.

You may remember Tuxedo from my halloween-perfect black polishes post last week. While Tuxedo is a shiny shade, the true pop of the dark, vampy color comes after you apply topcoat {it's completely necessary in this case}.

The formula here is thinner than that of Gleam Scene; but, as long as you apply with a slightly-heavy hand you can achieve full opacity in one coat. I had a little bit of a problem with this color trying to pool in my cuticles; but the glossiness and smoothness fully made up for that.

I've used Lorel's Gold in the past around Christmas. This looks really cool by MARK!

At the moment I'm wearing Essie's orange and black for Halloween.

I think the black nails would look awesome with a gold stripe or two - except I suck any sort of nail art. Oh well. Two beautiful colors though!

Love the gold and how cool is the cat like combination of the two in the link! I've been wearing Sally Hansen lately, and I'm wearing Deep Purple and Mint Sorbet. Not fun names, but right to the point!! Are you rocking anything fun for Halloween on your nails?
