Lit from Within: A Dance with Texture and Shimmer

A Dance with Texture and Shimmer

Long-time readers of mine will surely remember that last Thursday, I had a guest post from Julie of Wishes of a Blue-Eyed Girl.  I know, I can't remember what I had for breakfast last, not to mention last Thursday.  She did a comparison post, and I contributed a couple of pictures of Pantone Parachute Purple.:

And, while not a dupe for the polishes she had, it's pretty.  And I was just inspired by the beautiful green shimmer.

I had also just seen this manicure by Superficially Colorful, and I loved it.  So, I pulled out my reinforcement stickers, and my new Dance Legend Malachite, which is a textured polish, and created this:

Without topcoat, you can see the 3-D texture of the green glitter, and I love how it blends into the green shimmer in Parachute Purple.

This was a fun way to dress up Parachute Purple, and it only took a reinforcement circle, which you can find almost any place office/school supplies are sold.  If you try it, I hope you post on my Facebook page!
