Purple

Formula X Nightingale

For more of my thoughts on Formula X polishes, please see this post.

This manicure was done using Orly Bonder base coat, and Seche Vite top coat. There was no polish shrinkage with the Seche Vite, so I would assume Formula X polishes play well with Seche Vite.

(Sorry for the super exposed photos. This color is particularly dark, so the pictures had to be bright to show the purple-ness).

Essie DJ Play That Song

Unfortunately when I wore this color for the first time it was a bit bubbly. But I think that was because of my topcoat. The particular bottle of Seche Vite that I used was old, sticky, and I think I was in a hurry when I applied it. But I’ve worn DJ Plat That Song one more time since. I used a newer bottle of Seche Vite and had no problems with bubbles. :)

China Glaze Fancy Pants + W111 stamping

Today I have a purpley-periwinkle polish called Fancy Pants from the China Glaze Avant Garden collection. I ended up stamping on top of it, but first here are the plain polish photos. It looks much more blue-ish in person. I love the subtle pink shimmer in it…

Then I did some stamping on it. :)

Base Color: China Glaze Fancy Pants
Stamping Color: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Presto Pink
Stamping Plate: Winstonia W111

* Winstonia plates were sent to me for review.
