Yesterday I showed you a great hot pink polish from NOX Twilight and I teased you with a great layering combo... So here it is!
As a refresher, this is what NOX Twilight - Crush looks like. A hot neon pink creme.
I had just gotten some really cool stuff in the mail, so I added 2 polishes on top of this one that I don't think I've seen layered over colors like this!
First I added a coat of Max Factor - Fantasy Fire.
This tiny little polish is a gem from the UK. These are being swapped out of England like crazy, but lucky me, I have an aunt in England and she picked this up for me! Along with two of its friends, of course.
Fantasy Fire is a purple polish with intense multi-chromatic shimmer, much like the very very very extremely hard to find and expensive Clarins 230.
I haven't swatched this little beauty yet so in the meantime please check this post from Polish Ninja that compares the two!
I couldn't see all the colors in Fantasy Fire while layered over the pink, but the vibrant purple base made this crazy weird neon magenta color. It almost didn't look real when it was on my nails. The color was something I'd never seen before in polish-form.
I'm not sure if the photos quite show the uniqueness of the color but take my word for it, it was really cool!
I didn't stop there. I added a third polish that gave it a whole new look.
I added Deborah Lippmann - Across The Universe.
I don't think I've ever seen this polish layered over purple before, and it really is stunning! Especially over such a bright and shimmery purple.
ATU as it is affectionately known is a dark blue jelly polish with blue and green glitters, small and large.
Isn't it kinda strange how you see all the layers? You can see the blue jelly and the glitter, and the shimmer from Fantasy Fire, but still you can see the brightness of Crush too. Totally weird, and very cool!
I got this Lippmann when they were on sale half price after Deborah was on some television show. So this was $9. I'd have a hard time paying full price for Lippmanns, but I can do $9.
Well there you have it! Three great polishes that make a great combo. What do you think?
