Split Charisma

Hello hello :)  Today's mani is a split pink & purple look. I almost didn't post these... it's one of those that kinda looked better in my head than it came out on my nails (and even more so in the pics). But...

The pink is the two coats of the polish shown--Zoya Charisma. It's a bit more fuchsia than hot pink... one of those shades that just doesn't cooperate with a camera. It's very pretty though! Ditto for the glitter, which is Milani Purple Gleam (from their one-coat glitter line). Purple Gleam is warmer in real life and the colours are a bit more similar to each other than they look here. It's so sparkly!

Indoors with flash

The black line to separate them was done with black Stripe Rite striping polish. Last, I used three (!!) coats of Seche Vite topcoat, and based on these pics I think I needed yet another one. These dense, fine glitters are very pretty, but also very topcoat-hungry!

Outdoors in shade

I had to photograph these early before work, so I didn't get many sunlight pics beyond that first one. I really like this one, though.

Thanks for stopping in today! I'll be back soon with more--won't leave you hanging so long again ;)  have a wonderful day! xoxo
