Fun Forced Mimicry

Hey everyone!  I hope you're all having a great week so far!

I wanted to wear a color that was a little out of the ordinary, but I couldn't narrow it down.  So I went with one that shifts to several colors!

This is three coats of HITS Dreamer, an absolutely amazing multi-chrome that shifts from deep blue to purple to burgundy to orange.  It reminds me of fire!!  I love it!  The formula is pretty good, but took three coats to achieve the desired look.  (And, as I've said before, the HITS brushes from the Mari Moon series left a lot to be desired, but don't really cause too much of an issue.)

I wanted to add some sparkle to this without taking away from the polish itself.  I wanted to add some sparkle that would mimic the shifting effect.  But I didn't have any glitter polishes that would do this.  
What's a girl to do?!

I decided to force some glitters to do what I needed them to do!  
I used Elixir Lacquers Dakota with Funky Fingers Paparazzi and sponged them down the sides of my nails for a gradient effect, and finished with a coat of SV.

So now, when I move my hand to see the color shift, it looks like the glitter has made the shift as well!

This is actually supremely eye catching and fun to wear!  I love wearing so much glitter that doesn't take away from an amazing polish!

I hope you all enjoy!

Happy Painting!!


  1. Beautiful combinations! I love the touch of glitter, great idea!

    Llarowe was replacing funky brushes from the Mari Moon collection if you got a bad brush. Unless the brush itself is just that crappy. Hehe.

  2. You can get a replacement brush free if you got it from Llarowe!

  3. This is gorg. I'm speechless

  4. That nail polish is fabulous - great idea with the glitters!

  5. Always so creative!
    I hope you use your Lizard Belly creatively! ;)
