Salon Perfect- Raisin the Roof
Have you ever purchased a polish thinking it was one color and then realized it was something completely different when you applied it? Was that surprise a good one for you? That's the experience I had with Salon Perfects Raisin the Roof from the Fall Polish Forecast Collection.
I know I know from the word "Raisin" I should have guessed this was a shade of purple but for some reason that didn't register with my brain. *facepalm* When I saw this beauty sitting on the shelf at Wal-mart I snatched it up thinking it was a deep dark shimmery brown. (Which by the way I am still looking to add to my collection so if you have any suggestions I'm all ears!)
So imagine my surprise when it turned out to be a deep purple. (with brownish undertones) I have to say that the surprise was a great one as this polish turned out to be a stunner in my opinion.
Raisin the Roof is a plum raisin color with golden shimmer. This polish has some amazing depth to it. It really did remind me of raisins with the first coat.

The flashes of green are so subtle that I was only able to capture them with a macro shot. I'm still in awe of this polishes beauty. But since I can't seem to wear a polish on its own lately, I added an accent nail of Liquid Lacquer's Penny Jar.
Just the right amount of bling wouldn't you say? These two polishes seem to be made for each other, and I couldn't be happier with how this turned out. I picked up Penny Jar from a blog sale but it is still available in her shop for $9. You can find it here if you're looking to add it to your collection.
I hope you enjoyed this post and remember, I'm still looking for a dark shimmery brown so don't forget to add your suggestions in the comments. Thanks for stopping by and Happy polishing!
