This week's fixation

My attempt at a sparkly purple ombré… and some swatching, effectively.

One coat, two coats, then topped with a coat of glitter. It looked better after Seche Vite and cleanup, but by that time I had left my camera at the office, so no photos of that.

Base: NailTek II Intensive Therapy (I was sent this by accident when I ordered something else. I wouldn’t use it again: My polish started peeling off on the second day.)
Pinky: Nicole by OPI Prized Possession Purple
Ring: Sally Girl ?
Middle: CoverGirl Nailslicks Wild Plum
Index: Nicole by OPI I’m a Belieber
Thumb: Aldo Got Grapes?
Glitter: Nicole by OPI One Less Lonely Glitter

All of these purple polishes belong to my daughter. I’m not really a purple person, but my outfit for the office Christmas party was all purple, so…

It was supposed to go from dark to light, but the Prized Possession Purple (from the Justin Bieber collection… I took them out of the box before I gave them to my daughter) was so sheer that it ended up looking lighter than my old Sally Girl (which is also a mini, so name on it).
