Glitter MashUp Part 4: Lavender

Perhaps it is easy to say that I love blue leaning lavenders. It is harder to find them in the realm of glitter.

The last of my four mashups:



A gauzy layering with a lot of depth. Perhaps a little less "certain" but certainly the most magical.

First up, I used a base of China Glaze's Electric Lilac.


A pretty amazing polish on its own. It is from that same 50 Glitters and Shimmers China Glaze came out with in 2010 and is packing iridescent and holo glitter inside of a pale jelly lilac base.

I love it so much!



Next I used Sally Hansen's Techno. Not to be confused with China Glaze's reissue of Techno - a holo glitter - but a holo glitter in a violet jelly base:


As you can see I did have a bit of a pile up on glitter on the middle finger, but all in all, hard to fault: generous holo glitter interspersed with a lilac metallic glitter all in a deep violet jelly base. Work!

Finally Revlon Star.
I know, I know: blah, blah, blah, sparse. blah blah, blah, few holo hexes, etc. But, it is a pretty dark royal purple glitter.


Very unique among my glitters, and very nice.

Once again, the mashup:


I love how there is less contrast so that the royal purple in Revlon Star shows up a little more purple. Plus, the jelly layers still let you see the flash at lower levels, nice.


Thank you for reading my little nail polish journal!
