I have a few colors to show you today that just remind me of fruity cocktails, and that the beach is only a moment away..
Illamasqua Grab. What to call this color... somewhere between fuchsia and magenta, I guess? Definitely in the pink family. Nice, glossy finish.
I added Julep Jordan, a mix of silver glitters, to give it an edge. Adding some black would look nice, too!
Illamasqua Lament. This was one of my surprise favorites! A coral/salmon color that is bright, but not blindingly so, and definitely not neon.
I love coral and gold together, so I thought Glitzology Sock Monkey would pair nicely. Even with a very thin layer, it almost completely covered Lament! Gives it almost a patina look, like an old gold lame' purse.
Gamma. Now this is pretty much a neon, only in a rubber-type finish. My camera couldn't capture the true brightness of this polish. Definitely more bright than simply orange, but not radioactive yellow, either. A fun summery color.
I took a fan brush and swept Lament and Grab over Gamma. The mixture really looks like fruit punch to me! But not the kiddie Kool-Aid version, more like the one with an umbrella in it. This look needs topcoat to make it all meld together.
Too soon for summer? It's 5 o'clock somewhere...
