Essie Lapis of Luxury w/ OPI Pearl of Wisdom

More layering! Like I's a new habit!
This time I used Essie Lapis of Luxury (an old favorite from the greatest Essie collection of all time, the Resort Collection 2010), and OPI Pearl of Wisdom (a sheer duochrome that's great for layering...but photographs horribly!)
2 coats of Lapis, and 1 of Pearl, with a coat of Seche Vite. I considered just stopping with Lapis, since it's such a pretty blue, but where's the fun in that? Pearl makes it all the gives it that nice pink flash, and in some lights a slight green flash (I wasn't able to show it in any pics though, unfortunately).
The thing that this mani most reminded me of is the cover of Katy Perry's album Teenage Dream...kind of like pink and blue cotton candy. It also somewhat reminds me of icicles, since it's ice blue with little ice-looking pieces of shimmer. It looks way better in person pictures are not good at all. Ah well.

Anyways, I suppose that's all for now!

Sincerely, Cat
