I wish I had better pics, but I don't, so this is what you get. At three coats it's still sheer. The slightly colored base makes my tips look horrible. But the shimmer is very, very pretty.
What does one do with such a polish? Although perhaps a sin ...I used it to franken with. But don't worry, I saved half of the original product. Not gonna waste all of it!
I had been playing around with it in my mind for a while. Girls who like purple, but also green, would of course need a nice green with purple shimmer. I tried to figure out the best green base for it, and maybe my choice wasn't optimal, but I took out that trusted bottle of New York Summer Amaranth.
Shots by different cameras - by now you know how my compact hates purple hues, and my DSLR hates focus. Honestly, my compact also hates certain greens, which is obvious in the first and the last photo here. And, well, I poured a sheer into a jelly, so... ...this is four coats. It's hardly opaque.
But used for layering, it turns out like this:
Mmm... On top of BB Couture Poison Ivy. And all shitty flash photos. I was working late.
I know, I can't write passionately about this. But again, I'm working late. And my mind is elsewhere. I poured my brains into the other blog earlier today, and now my head is an empty bubble. But you get my not very well executed idea, right? I'm so empty I haven't even managed to invent a name for this creation yet.
Why not just use the original purple shimmer for layering, you ask? Because, with time I have come to realise how I hate particles that stays on top of my manicures. I don't like the flat impression that sometimes makes. I want the particles within the polish. Like a glow.
And now I must put my head to rest on my fluffy white pillow, as I'll be working a frightingly long shift tomorrow. I will dream of colors.
