Dior Amazonia and Golden Light Layering

Not quite a month after I first posted Dior Amazonia and Golden Light, I got around to trying them together, putting one coat of Golden Light on top of two of Amazonia.







I'm undecided on this combination. The dark base seems to bring out the brushstrokes in the gold but it also brings out pops of color in the shimmer that I didn't notice when I used the gold alone. Here's a differently lit shot showing both things at once.



Now that I've looked at these pictures, I'm wondering if Golden Light over a lighter base would be just the thing. Maybe in another month I'll have tried that.

  2. I think I like it. I am not sure yet because indeed the brushstrokes are a bit more obvious. Though the sparkle is pretty!

  4. This turned out to be really nice and complex.

  5. Very pretty! I like layering when it comes out in a unique manner that matches no polish I have. Even though I'm pretty OCD about, well, just about everything (LOL!) ... Surprisingly, I don't mind VNL's (Visible Nail Line's) and VBL's (Visible Brush Line's).
