Np2 Atomic

I had only ever read about Np2 polishes, but the general consensus was that this formula was amazing. Well, it is. Atomic is my first Np2 polish and color me impressed (I don't know why, I was dying to say that.) Anyways, Atomic is not the easiest polish to photograph, because, while it is primarily green, it changes colors dramatically in different lights. Below is what the "main" color looks like. Deep green with a copper shimmer. Check out the bottle; it looks almost brown. I contorted my hand a thousand different ways, and this was the only position I could take a picture of the brown side of Atomic. It's not the best picture, but it's a good indication of the color; a deep chocolate-mahogany with a gold-copper shimmer.
Np2 has the most unique bottles I've ever seen. On top is a base/topcoat and obviously the polish is in the bottle half. According to the directions on the bottle, you put on one coat of the clear stuff, two coats of polish, and then another coat of the clear.
They are detatachable, but I found it easier to paint my nails with both bottles connected.
Below I topped it with a coat of China Glaze Matte Magic.
Matte, but more brown than green.
I give this polish my stamp of approval; I'll be honest, after the first coat I was starting to doubt that it would take just two coats, but the second one glided on and really smoothed everything out. I also think it's cool that they include with the polish a formula that doubles as a base and a top coat. Atomic is from the Np2 Fall Colors.
