This mini-collection (3 bottles, regular sized) also came with a Nail Vinyls sample, so you can see my step-by-step process above.
My base was Casual Elegance: A pale lilac creme that is VERY camera shy. The above photo and below, right photo are the most color-accurate (minus my orange skin). It tends to want to photograph blue.
Next, I created a gradient using Intriguing. This one was only hard to capture because I was trying to stay color-true for Casual Elegance and the gradient started to disappear on camera.
I threw in a swatch of Winter's Light so you could see this beauty in all it's glory. Supposedly it's the purple-blue cousin to Hypnotize Me (one of Cult Nails earlier lacquers). Marta Warmuz of Chit Chat Nails also layered this one over Vicious and topped it with a Matte finish and it's stunning!
