I have had this for a while and swatched it over a number of colours, obviously since it is black and white it needs a mid way sort of colour to show it off to its best. It looks lovely over some of my greens (I do like green with purple), and it looks great over purples too but I had in my mind I wanted it over grey. Well, Leighton Denny Zero Gravity was too light and Graycious too dark, hence the mission to find a mid grey.
Nails Inc Gilston Road is absolutely perfect, not too dark, not too light and with its hint of lilac, it is a fabulous base for City Lights. The contrast is just right and the holographic microglitter sparkle beautifully although the camera has only picked up that they are purple.
This is one coat of City Lights over Gilston Road and although I find it hard to see the black glitters against the black brush, I think I got a reasonable distribution of black & white.
Lots of pics! that always happens when I love a mani so much I can't bring myself to delete the pictures!
