Vesper's Ice At Khongoryn Els
On my ring and pinkie finger I used three coats of OPI Vesper (Bond Girls Collection), a dark, vampy purple textured polish with black glitters. While Vesper isn't completely matte, it's considerably less sparkly than the other Bond Girls polishes I own, Tiffany Case and Honey Ryder.
My index finger shows three coats of Essence Ice, Ice, Baby (Me & My Icecream Trend Edition), a slightly lavender toned pink shimmer. Ice, Ice, Baby (is anyone else humming Vanilla Ice right now?) is pretty sheer, but wearable with three coats. I used Kiko 621 Violet (Mirror Nail Lacquer Collection) and MoYou Pro Collection plate 14 to add the flower patter (I think they're orchids).
Finally, on my middle finger and thumb, I used three coats of Elevation Polish Khongoryn Els, a taupe polish with an intense blue shimmer that makes the polish look mauve/purple. Khongoryn Els are sand dunes found in the mongolian Gobi Gurvansaikhan National Park.
For a glossy finish and shorter drying time I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top topcoat on my thumb, index and middle finger.
Elevation Polish are available at their own store and at Llarowe.
