Color shift and glitter MATCH!
Good afternoon all. I have an under the weather tiny little man today who's been sleeping lots so I was able to finish a mani I've had in my mind for days. Here's what I used:
As a refresher to see what Pink/Blue Shifty looks like alone you can check out the photo album on my Facebook page here. Pink/Blue Shifty is a hot pink/magenta that shifts to a bright glowy blue. Happens to be pretty much the same blue as the glitter in the hot pink jelly base of Disco Biscuit. The pink bases to both polishes are slightly different as Pink/Blue Shifty is more purple and Disco Biscuit is a true hot pink but because of Disco Biscuit's sheer jelly base I didn't think it would completely mast the base color and color shift of Pink/Blue Shifty.
Here is the resulting mani in direct sunlight:
It was difficult to capture the glitter of Disco Biscuit on camera today. For a better look at Disco Biscuit you can always google swatches or you can check out a previous blog post of mine here. You can still see a slight color shift through Disco Biscuit (better in person, color shifts are always difficult to capture on camera) and Pink/Blue Shifty gives a more purple hue to the otherwise very hot pink Disco Biscuit. And again, the bright blue glitter in Disco Biscuit matches the blue shift of Pink/Blue Shifty pretty much perfectly. I'm very pleased with how this turned out.
