Focusing On: CND Shellac in Patina Buckle

I'm going to start off and say my piece about the name of this shade.  Some of the CND Shellac names have me laughing or sometimes baffled how to pronounce it (Hotski To Tchotchke for example, five year on I'm still none the wiser) but Patina Buckle, PATINA BUCKLE?!  I've googled it, obviously I know what a buckle is and patina is "a green or brown film on the surface of bronze or similar metals, produced by oxidation over a long period" so you learn something new everyday and it does make sense for the shade.  
 
To me though, Patina Buckle sounds like one of those things that goes around Facebook that says "work out your stripper name" or something and you take your first pet's name and combine it with your mother's maiden name (for reference, I'd be Frosty Williams, ooh la la!) I know that was a random start to this blog post but you know what, I am pretty random!

So anyway, my new friend Patina Buckle and I decided to show off her talents by layering her over other shades.  Sometimes you just look at a colour and you think "you Sweet Cheeks are going to be perfect over other colours" so that's exactly what I did.

I went super fancy with this blog post and I've taken a photo for you under a daylight lamp (above) and in actual real sunshine (yes I know, shockingly it was sunny today!) below just for a treat for your eyeballs.

Both photos from left to right are all two layers of CND Shellac and then one layer of Patina Buckle over it.

  • Peacock Plume
  • Pretty Poison
  • Dark Dahlia 
  • Rock Royalty
  • Lavender Lace
  • Wisteria Haze
  • Beckoning Begonia
  • Sultry Sunset
  • Pink Bikini
I would happily wear any of these shades and I'm sure Patina Buckle would be fantastic over pretty much anything to add a really unique twist to all of the existing line.
