Hi guys! 2 weeks ago I posted some bright and summery Shimmer colours, so for this week I thought I would balance it out with some darker colours. They are promising very wet weather here this week, so I think it's quite fitting. The first colour I am showing you is Jacki, a gorgeous dark purple and Karina, a sexy red!
As I mentioned above, Jacki is a vampy dark purple mix. It's actually made up of a maroon base with purple, blue and bit of gold glitter. It's a very complex polish and really stunning up close. Since Jacki has a coloured base you can wear it on it's own, but I put 2 nice coats over a thin coat of P2 Call me, just to help it along. Also, the glitter in Jacki is mostly small, so it dries quite flat for a glitter polish!
I really like this polish, it's very pretty, especially under strong lighting, so you can see the complexity of the colour.
Karina is a very sexy red mix. It has a red tinted base and has a mix of small and large red glitter, some black and a little bit of purple. It also has a lovely magenta sheen, making this a very striking colour. As with most of these glitter polishes I layered Karina over a similar base. I did 2 coats of the glitter over 1 sheer coat of OPI Skyfall.
I absolutely adore polishes with black glitter mixed in, I don't know why, and I loooove red, so this one was perfect!
