Ok, I know it's expensive. I shouldn't have bought it. But just look at this polish.
Marc Jacobs Petra is gorgeous. It's a foil-y purple/silver mesh, and this is one coat. No topcoat. The formula is impeccable. And the bottle is so posh. Love.
I was inspired by this mani on Beauty High by Stephanie Stone. I know it has less oomph with these two colors being so similar, but I liked how it came together with the metallic purple studs.
On top of Petra is Gothic Gala Lacquers Vallis Te'nebris, a vampy purple holo.
I think studs and rhinestones are my fave nail art thingies to play with. There are just so many fun options!

Too subtle? Or just subtle enough?
