Hi guys! Quick post tonight as I'm just not at all motivated right now. I feel like I'm going through way too many blogging ruts. I get so excited to show you guys something, but then I'm too lazy to write anything, or an unhappy with how my pics turned out. This polish is a fine example of when my pics don't turn out how I had hoped. I do have to say, I've been taking some of my pics in the bathroom at work (weird, I know), cause for indoor, artificial lighting, it seems to work really well.
This is Essence's Alice Had a Vision....Again. I saw these polishes about three weeks ago in store, and was just not interested in them. They I had seen them again in Fred Meyer's and I actually picked up the bottle, and the shimmer screamed out "buy me! buy me!" so I did. I bought all the dark shimmers and left the gold there....its just not for me.
I had heard the formula was pretty thick on this, so I applied thinner before I had even tried it, so don't know how the original formula is, but it did look thick, so I think thinner is probably necessary.
The shimmer in this is ah-mazing! I was actually able to get some pretty color accurate pics of this. My camera kept wanting to change this to blue, but its really a dark, purple jelly base with loads of purple shimmer with hints of blue/teal shimmer. In certain lights it changes to gold shimmer, so there is some aspect of a duochrome shimmer.
