Lidia liked my purple homage! :-)
But she also wasn't thrilled with the colours themselves. The lilac was too bright, and the glittery too sparkly. She mentioned that her favourite purples are 'closed' ones, and she'd brought me one of them, Audrey (Impala)!
And what better way of trying it out then layering it on top of my lilac mani (that I hadn't really enjoyed since day one)? Audrey was opaque in one coat, as far as I can remember.
I'm a big fan of this coat on top of coat technique. It gives me a chance to change my mani every couple of days quickly! :-)
