For this mani, I used two polishes from Essence's Class of 2013 collection, School's Out Forever (a dark taupe with shimmer running through) and Alpha Better Gamma (pink with a hint of shimmer).  On my ring finger, I added two stripes of School's Out Forever and then added another coat of Alpha Better Gamma to give the taupe a lighter look.  I then stamped an image in white over it from the BPL-028 plate.

I like School's Out Forever a lot!  The formula is great and the shimmer is really pretty!  What do you guys think of it?

NYX Perfect Gray really does reflect its name.  It's a lovely gray creme with a great formula!  I paired it with Lenora Nail Colors Moody, a black scattered holo.  It's a bit on the sheer side, but gave full coverage in three coats.  On my middle finger, I stamped an image from the DP02 plate using Color Club Revvvolution.
