A bit ago, I bought the entire Rodeo Diva collection from China Glaze. I've never purchased an entire collection before! I saw it swatched on blogs and decided I needed every color, they were so beautiful. I paired two of them for this manicure: Lasso My Heart (light purple) and Midnight Ride (blackened purple).
Lasso My Heart is a beautiful color, and I'm glad I own it! It's a glowing mauve-y purple with a shimmer.
I then stamped it with Midnight Ride, which looks purple in the bottle (above) but in the stamp, you couldn't really see as much purple as I would have liked. It makes a nice contrast with LMH, without the stark contrast of a black, though, which I think is a softer look.
