Jessie's Girl Confetti over Joe Fresh Cobalt

I typically only post in the mornings for Twinsie Tuesday but as I promised you yesterday that I had something special to show you ladies, I had to post it asap.  Plus the fact that I've been gone for ten days, I'm having the blogging itch bad.


I would label today's mani layering perfection.  Using Joe Fresh Cobalt as my base, I decided to play around with Jessie's Girl Confetti that was sent to me by the fantabulous Marisa from Polish Obsession.  In the bottle, Confetti is a blue to purple duochrome that glistens in its glass.  On the nail, it practically comes alive with metallic flakie goodness, flashing back and forth between silvery blue and royal violet.  In the pictures below, it almost looks 3D to my eye.


This is two coats of Cobalt layered with two coats of Confetti.




The macro shot really captures how one polish can be a (1) flakie, (2) duochrome, and (3) metallic.  The textured look -- without the annoyance or obviousness of glitter -- just really made my day.  This mani has stolen my heart.


Have you ladies lost yours as well??

  6. It was actually shocking how it ended up looking on the nail. Sometimes drugstore brands just knock it out of the park.
