Which green to use was an easy decision - I had ordered some of the new Esmaltes Da Kelly glitters from the Super Heroes and Villains Collection from Rainbow Connection and Green Lantern was the first one I saw swatches of and just had to have.
This is a perfect combination of emerald green glitter in a green base. I think you could use this as a topper over a dark shade but 2 coats is enough for full coverage. This is my first Esmaltes Da Kelly polish and I am pleased to say it applied nicely and dried well. The finish was rough and I did use 2 coats of top coat for a smooth glossy finish but I am really happy with it - looking forward to trying the others in this range.
The outdoor shots are reasonably colour accurate, the macro shots are a bit too blue but they do show how pretty the glitter is!
The next prompt was purple and as I didn't have any untried purples I decided to stamp Virtuous Polish Humility and Apipila P31 over my green glitter. Humility is a dark matte purple which stamps nicely but does dry quickly so not much time to think about placement.
Then I added more purple with SV by Sparkly Vernis Blurple Ice cubes and Apipila P31 again.
I am pretty pleased with these manis but the light this week has been rubbish, really hard to capture anything, it's so dull - I just want sunshine, or at least some decent daylight!
