Today I have a purple mani to show you my purple-hating camera was completely unable to capture correctly. Please imagine all the colors a little more red-ish.
My base color is OPI Tomorrow Never Dies (Skyfall Collection), a sheer purple base with lots of blue shimmer, which combine to a shimmering „blurple“ color. I used three coats for opacity and had no issues applying. Tomorrow Never Dies is not my favourite Bond movie, but still a gorgeous polish ;-)
Then I added one coat of GlimmerbyErica Twilight Sky (old version). „This polish’s inspiration was a stunning sunset I saw one summer evening. It has a sparkling purple glitter base with purple, blue, and orange micro glitter, blue sapphire holo glitter, purple square glitter, and dark navy blue glitter, all in a clear lacquer base.“, that’s how Erica from GlimmerbyErica describes the old version of Twilight Sky (I couldn’t find the square glitter, though). This version seems to be long gone (I have to admit, I bought this polish in july, und haven’t worn it until now), but there’s a new version of it that looks pretty similar, without the holo hexes, but with additional micro glitter in fuchsia.
Application was a breeze, no fishing for glitters or dabbing the polish needed. I finished with one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and one coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.
GlimmerbyErica polishes are available on Etsy.
