The Essence of Alice's vision

It's almost February already, so let me show you one of my christmas presents. Sofia arrived at my place a week before christmas eve with a lovely smile on her face, and this: Alice Had a Vision, from Essence.



I have forgotten how many coats I did, but knowing me, it was likely three. The formula was a bit thick and jellyish, a very dark, vampy purple with these fabulous green and magenta flecks - the magenta ones shift into gold.

Some (no names) think what I did next was a damn shame, but I couldn't resist...



I added the typical green to blue opalescent flakes. This particular one is one of the Finger Paints, namely Flecked.

What do you think, do the flakes ruin it all?

All products were personal gifts.

Swedish word of the day:
julklapp -noun christmas present
Only eleven months 'til next time!

    2. Sure! I bought 2 bottles...one especially for you, but since you already own one. Just give it to someone who will love it too. =)

  6. I like it both ways, but I think one's not always in the mood for tha flakies on top om glitter ^^
    Is is very similar to Orly - Out of this World or perhaps Zoya-Julianne?

    1. I'd say this one is even darker, and it's quite unique because if its green flecks that neither the Orly nor the Zoya have!

    Jag tyckte inte att flakesen var en "damn shame", bara att jag föredrar Alice på egen hand. ;D
