Day 6: Violet
**4 days left to enter my contest/giveaway! Tick tock, tick tock!**
Violet makes me think of two things.
Love those books! I might be a little obsessed with Lemony Snicket, so what? *shifty eyes*
Violet! You're turning violet!
But today's challenge pertains to the color violet, in nail polish form. What a fabulous moment to introduce you to one of my Beatles frankens, Her Majesty!
It's a hidden track at the end of Abbey Road, and a perfect name for this polish!
Thar she blows!
She is a wee bit sheer, so I started with one coat of American Apparel African Violet and then a coat of NYC Midnight Amethyst (sorry for the derpy swatches).
Um. Why are there no sun shots!? OMG. What. No.
Well I guess we'll just have to make do. Anyway, I did two-ish coats of Her Majesty because the glitter distribution sucks beach balls. I already dumped an arseload (I feel like using the British term is less offensive, probably not to any Brits out there, though) of glitter but it all sinks/sticks to the sides.
I think I'm going to try and find a glitter polish that has smaller gold glitter in it, that way the glitter would be suspended and I think it would look better with smaller gold glitter in it anyway. More Lippmann-esque.
It has an okay formula, it's a little thin, though, which is NOT HELPING THE GLITTER PROBLEM. But other than that I like it. I was kinda "meh" about it in the beginning which was disappointing, because I want me Beatles frankens to be spank-tastic (the Beatles totally deserve groovy frankens) but it grew on me. Not like a tumor, or mold, more like a... well I can't actually think of anything pleasant that literally grows on you, but you get the idea, right?
Anyway, I think with a few alterations she will be fabulous. Fit for a queen, no?
