Starry Purple Beach

Sorry for disappearing again there. The past few weeks have been *crazy*! Thankfully things are kind of slowing down a little bit. This week, I felt dark and purple-y, so I pulled out Nubar's "Purple Beach" duochrome, which is just an awesome color. It's dark and broody, but with an amazing green/gold tone in the right light. One of my new favorites.

I started with two coats "Purple Beach" over a base coat of Seche Vite:
Above with a flash, below without so you can sort of see the color variation (sorry it's so blurry!):
Then I simply took these great star stickers, and put them on to just accent the color a little.
Two coats of Seche Vite top coat, and some clean-up results in an unfortunately blurry photo, but you get the idea:
When you have a color this great on it's own, sometimes less is more when it comes to nail art, I think. I just wish I were a better photographer...though I think our camera might need replacing too. ;-)

Until next week, Happy Polishing!

That color is really cool! I saw it posted on Scrangie too.
