Leather Effects Dupe in progress

Good afternoon all! This is a quick post to show you what I was wearing yesterday. First off, I have to say that earlier this year I saw some awesome swatches of Nails Inc. Leather Effect Nail Polish in Noho over at Lacquered Lover. The down side? $25 a bottle and you can't buy it alone. Bummer. So I decided to attempt a dupe since I have the polish making supplies. Here's how it came out... "Leather-ish" is opaque in 2 coats. Shown below with 2 coats no top coat, no undies.

What do you think? Did I come close? I was afraid it would end up super-textured but it ended up with a subtle texture and way shinier than I expected. Now I am kicking myself for not mattifying this before I removed it. Maybe next time. 

Much Love & Lacquer, The Dragon Lady
