As usual, I had a hard time picking which to swatch first. I almost went with Once Upon a Time because it was winking at me with its holo glitter—see?
But I left the funky and fabulous string glitter in the bottle this time, since I knew from looking at swatches that it was best for layering and I wasn't wearing a compatible base color (and was too impatient to apply one at that moment). So I turned to another glitter, Models Own Purple Haze. I've also seen swatches of this, so why I didn't remember it was also better layered I can't say. I applied four coats and it was still too speckled-y for my taste. Fortunately, I have many polishes in my stash that I'm sure Purple Haze will get along with just swimmingly.
I couldn't leave it there, so I picked another Models Own to swatch next: Nude Beige.
This was opaque in two coats, and I was surprised at how much I liked it on. I'd originally thought this might be a good "underwear" color but I can see wearing it by itself when I want something elegant and classic on my tips.
Thanks so much for a great swap, Lucy!
