Layering...Periwinkle Style

More of that delicious blue I love so much!

This will be a photo heavy post, so bear with me!

I don't have many Revlon Street Wears, I think they all hit the Dollar Tree before I was really even aware of nail polish again. I found Charming on eBay and grabbed it.

Three coats here and a delightful blue/purple duochrome. Sheer, yes, but silver glitter and that blue jelly base are made to layer!

Here is a bottle shot to see what a changeling it is:

It really does play some games with light.

Hold that thought. What to layer it over? I think it would work over a lot of mid-toned blues. Cashmere Cardigan by Orly, A World of Compassion by Sparitual, and Modern Grace by Revlon come to mind. I decided to opt for a new polish by L.A. Girl: Extreme from their Color Addict Line.

A dreamy periwinkle blue with a greenish yellow shimmer throughout. What a nice combination!

Let's bask in that, shall we?

The violet blue combined with that yellow is almost genius.
Three coats.

Here you can see the blue shimmer can easily eclipse the yellow when indirect light hits it.


Mmmmm! Tasty!

Now that I've gotten that out of my is the combo:

Glitter and shimmer and duochrome, oh my! You can see the faint yellow peeping through, too! Fun!


But it disappears with ease.

They adore each other!

And here is a bottle shot:

The violets complement each other. There is something rather pleasing about this shade of blue. Mmmmmm....Charming!

Thanks for reading my little nail polish journal!


  1. Oh my word it glows!!! So gorgeous - I just LOVE this!

  2. Thanks!
    It's my favorite shade of blue!!


  3. I have a no-name polish that is close to a dupe for that Street Wear. It has a cute mermaid on the front, and I got it as a present in elementary school (I'm 22 now). Could never find any information about where it came from!

  4. OMG, that is so cute!!!

    It is kind of mermaid-y with all the watery blue/purple duochrome thent the glitter!

  5. I picked up some of those new LA Girls too - they're so dreamy and pretty!

  6. Oooh! Can't wait to see swatches! I can only get them online!

    Thanks to you I am trying nail stamping again...I can only bow to your mad skills!!!!

  7. Woo, these are both so gorgeous. I would like to know why Revlon doesn't bring back Street Wear.

  8. I have only one StreetWear, it's also a blue and a violet-blue at that, but it's a medium shade instead of a lighter one. The name is "Splash", so pretty, but it's at least 10 years old!

  9. Oh! Lovely! I kind of want that one!!!!!
