a quickie; Billie Purple

Here is a quickie mani for Saturday night. I started with 2 coats of Billie Cosmetics Purple, then swiped on an older Sally Hansen; Lilac Zinc, sponged on China Glaze Grape Juice then added an un-named dark purple glitter and Wet n Wild Kaleidoscope just past the lilac metallic polish.

The China Glaze polish Grape Juice disappeared beneath the glitters - but it did eliminate some of the brush-marks from the Sally Hansen Lilac Zinc polish.

Wet n' Wild Kaleidoscope is a lovely holographic glitter polish, though it sometimes needs 2 coats of TC as it has alot of texture to it. I only added 1 coat of TC because it's saturday- and I am lazy and ready to dive into a big bowl of chips and watch a scary movie; Battle of LA.

Oh also I figured out the blogger follow thing - yippee!!!!Have an awesome weekend everyone!

3 thin coats of Billie Cosmetics Purple with TC
