NOTD: a-England's Princess Sabra (Tristam Eyes) and NerdLacquer's Exterminate

Princess Sabra is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.  Described on a-England's site as an "alluringly feline golden olive bronzite", this beauty was inspired by polish creator Adina's cat Tristam's eyes.  The combo of the color and the holographic flash puts Princess Sabra on my list of favorites. 

Formula was great and below is two coats with base and top coat.  I wore this for three days and did experience some tip wear and slight chipping on a nail that was flaking. 

On day three I topped Princess Sabra with one coat of Exterminate by NerdLacquer.   Described on Ninja Polish as "a deep Dalekanium blackened-bronze brown with small black and gold glitter, large golden hex glitter, and small and medium light blue hex glitter", this polish reminds me of Gustav Klimt's "The Kiss", which could be why I love it so much.   Unfortunately, it's out of stock at the moment, but should be back at some point.   
The only issue I have with Exterminate is that some of the larger hex glitter can stick up a bit, which makes a good top coat essential.  Even with 1 coat of Gelous and 1 of Seche Vite, I've still got some roughness where some of the larger hex glitters are.  The seem to be slightly curved, so if they get placed facing down, it's not a problem.  If they facing up, however, they are rough.
