100th Post: Revlon Street Wear FX Flash (two versions)

Today's dual/dueling manicures are the two versions of Revlon Street Wear FX Flash.
I decided to use the blue and teal StrangeBeautiful cremes as a base for these polishes since they have a clear base and are quite suited to layering.
Streetwear was a line of super cool trendy polish out during my transition from junior high to high school. The line was first released in 1996, though I couldn't say exactly when they were discontinued. These polishes can still be found in discount stores and on eBay, though some are more difficult to locate than others.
These green version looks AMAZING in the bottle, but I think the blue one looks great on the nail.
The green version consists of black glitter and loads of iridescent glitter that shifts golden peach, green, and blue depending on the light, hence the gradation in the bottle.
The blue version is black, silver, and teal/turquoise glitter and larger bright blurple glitter.
These mani are one coat Nubar Nu Nails, two coats of StrangeBeautiful creme polish, one coat Nubar Diamont, two coats of Revlon Street Wear FX Flash, and another coat of Nubar Diamont.

Off to Comic Con in SD until Sunday. I hope I don't melt!
