I have quite a few purples but I am staunchly sticking to my rule of only using untried polishes so my choices were a bit limited, however this little beauty recently came into my possession courtsey of a friend.
Nail Lacquer UK Galaxy is a purple/green duochrome with tiny delicate pinky red flakie glitter. The tones are very pretty but I have to say, I do find duochromes quite tricky to apply. I seem to have a problem with brush strokes on these types of polishes, no matter how careful I am. It probably didn't help that I applied it late at night, in artifical light. Anyway, enough of my excuses!
I did 2 thin coats of Galaxy, and a top coat. The glitter is quite subtle, picked up in the pics as small flecks, but I think I've captured the duochrome shift quite well- it's quite strong and rather lovely!.
