Royal And Ethereal






This mani contains one polish I knew I was going to like and one that really surprised me.

 



I started with NYX Royal Blue, a dark blue (I wouldn't call it royal blue, it's darker, more like ink) polish I thought to be a creme/jelly hybrid. After I applied it (two thicker coats) I realised it's filled with a very subtle blue shimmer that gives it so much more depth than I expected.








On top of Royal Blue I applied one dabbed coat of GlimmerbyErica Ethereal. "It has a blue and yellow micro fine glitter base with slightly larger blue and yellow hexes and even bigger blue, green and yellow hexes. The yellow is true yellow, not gold."

 Application was easy, even with the bigger hexes. I finished with one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri for a glassy smooth finish. 














The original version of Ethereal I'm showing here was a limited edition and is long gone. But after popular request Erica mixed a new version that is still available, along with other gorgeous polishes, on  Etsy.
