Oh Cheeky, you've done it again. Cheeky Monkey Raunchy Bitch was my immediate favorite in the bunch. It looks very dark in the picture (and in the bottle) but it's actually a dark blue/purple with blue shimmer. I love it. The website says it's a "dark metallic blue" but I really was seeing a hint of purple in my bottle. Also the first coat went on as purple. The final "test" for me was swatching on a nail wheel and holding it up to the light and oh yeah, it's purple. This is quite interesting because Cheeky Monkey Romp is listed as a "dark metallic purple." Hmm...
This color gets NO justice in the shade or on nubbins. :( I can't wait until my nails grow out again, and this is the first color going on the long babies. (I'll also update this post with better pictures when I do.) Oh yes, and some tag love:
For some reason, I didn't realize that on Cheeky Monkey's website, in addition to having great stories for each color, there is also a drink recipe (adults only please!) to go along with it. Very fun to read, seriously. I could spend quite a bit of time on this website.
Here's 2 sun pictures, but again, NO JUSTICE. I used a base coat of Cheeky Monkey Wet Dream, 2 coats of Raunchy Bitch, and a coat of Seche Vite on top. I'm thinking that this one might need the light box, because trying to capture the purple was quite a feat.
