Purple Layers

Hello, Fireflies!

This mani I want to show you today is one that just evolved from looking at a color and wondering what it would look like with just a little..more.  Most times, I wish I knew how to edit myself!  I this this one is pretty good.

I started with Milani Violet Dash.  These high-speed drying lacquers are nice, especially for this clumsy gal, who is knocking into things within moments of finishing a mani.  The faster a polish dries, though, the faster you have to work, or you get streaks and patches like I did.

I thought that Darling Diva Persephone would need undies, but you can't even tell that the violet is under there.  It probably did save me from doing another layer, though - and I wouldn't want to waste a drop!

I love the shift and blue shimmer!

It's like magic when a polish looks purple, but then, no, it's actually a frosty blue.  How do they *do* that?

I couldn't resist ONE more layer.  The blue and the purple just seemed to call out for a glitter accent of Nerd Lacquer I Think You Call Me.. Sexy.

I think it is pretty sexy, myself.

So, how many layers of purple would you need?  Do you have a favorite layering combination?

If you'd like more information about Darling Diva Polish, they can be found on Facebook and EtsyNerdLacquer is harder to come by, but she does have a Google+ page, and has restocks on Ninja Polish and her own webstore.
