Alrighty. So to test out this beautiful polish I wanted to try it over more then one colour base, but I also (obviously) wasn't feeling insanely adventurous so I kept all the colours quite similar.I wouldn't go as far as saying they all fall into the same family, but definitely close. I used OPI Purple with a Purpose (thumb), Suzi Says Feng Shui (ring finger) and Into the Night (everywhere else). Quite a pretty combo even on their own I think.
Now this is my first time dabbling with a real complicated sparkle polish. I've tended to only really use shimmers in the past and they aren't quite so hard to use. I was actually texting my friend Sharra from over at The Blahg the whole time I did my nails trying to figure out the best way to get the big glitter chunks out.
|I did this hand first, notice that I have quite a few moons but the coats are so thick you can barely see the base coats?|
|This hand I tried dabbing the glitter on at Sharra's suggestion. Definitely not as many of the bigger pieces but I was happy to see my carefully selected base colours showing through better.|
I feel like there has to be a way for me to be able to get both the big glitters and the showing of the base coat, I just haven't figured it out yet. Suggestions welcome. All in all though I have never been more in awe of a polish. In case you can't see, its a very beautiful purpley blue shimmer with silver glitter chunks and silver moons throughout it. I tried to get some better pics in better lighting of both hands so you can really see the difference between having a lot of it on and less. Apologies for the lack of cleanup, like I said I was so excited to show you guys I think my nails are probably only JUST dry now.
