Today I have something special to show you, but before I do, I want to show you what I used as my base coat.
I recently took advantage of the Zoya Buy 3, Get 3 Free promo, and Zoya Neeka was one of my choices! Purple is my favorite nail color and smoky purples are even better! Neeka applied like a dream in two coats, and there are light purple shimmers in it! Pretty, isn't it?
On top of Zoya Neeka, I layered the last Nailventurous Lacquer that I swapped Amy for-PARDI GRAS!!!!
UPDATE: I was just informed by Amy, that this will NOT be for sale in her Etsy shop. I apologize for the misinformation!
I wanted to get in depth here about this polish. Pardi Gras is a translucent GREEN base with tiny micro purple glitters, mid-sized gold hexes, and large gold HOLO hexes along with large green hexes! Feast your eyes on this...
If all that isn't enough, I wanted to really capture the holo that is in the gold glitter hexes! Here is a close up shot! How sick is that?!
Here are three coats of Pardi Gras over bare nails to give you an idea of what it looks like alone. The micro purple glitters are so dense that it still gives off a purple hue!
On the left, I swatched one coat over ManGlaze ILF simply because of the green base. On the right are two coats of Pardi Gras alone! I did no manipulating of the glitters on any of these swatches. What you see came out on its own in every picture! Great job, Amy!
If you are curious as to how I was able to get so many Nailventurous polishes, I had a swap with Amy before she had decided to open up an Etsy shop. I swapped with her for thirteen of her polishes and two customs (in a haul post coming soon)! I saw it as a once in a lifetime opportunity to get her handmade polishes. I was a stranger to her at the time, but have gotten to know her through emails and Facebook. Like everyone else, I am trying to buy the ones I don't have through her Etsy shop. (I missed out on both openings because I was driving home from work, and wasn't able to get any, although a friend of mine snagged two for me. Thank you, Marnie!) Please be patient with her and her Etsy store selling out! She is a very sweet person who will bend over backward trying to make everyone happy, which-as we all know-is impossible to do. I would hate to see her burn out. Patience is key!
Amy is currently filling orders from her last opening! To be notified of her Etsy shop reopening, click HERE.
