China Glaze What a Pansy and Picture Polish Eerie

China Glaze What a Pansy is a blue-leaning medium purple creme from the City Flourish collection. Unlike some of the polishes from that collection, this one doesn’t dry lightning-fast, so personally I was disappointed (I know many people hated the formula on those polishes, but I absolutely loved them); I have other periwinkle-leaning purples already.

Anyway, I used two coats plus top coat. On the ring finger I used a chevron vinyl and added Picture Polish Eerie. I also added a few dots of Eerie on the thumb, which you can see in a couple of the pics below. Love that Picture Polish “bijou holo” finish!

And a phone pic for good measure, since What a Pansy appears just slightly too blue in some of the above photos:

Echoes Polish Happily Ever After and April 2015 Thermal

I have two thermals from Echoes Polish to show you today! Happily Ever After is a tri-thermal shifting from a warm purple when cold to a fuchshia pink when warm to a very pale lilac-leaning blue when hot, and has heavy gold flake shimmer throughout. The April 2015 Thank You thermal (Echoes polish creates a limited edition thermal each month and sends them out free in orders of 5 or more polishes) is a blue-purple when cold changing to a bright hot pink when hot, and also has shimmer. 

Happily Ever After is shown on my index and middle fingers, April 2015 on my ring, pinkie and thumb. I used three coats each plus topcoat, and both had great formulas. No sun when I wore these, so all photos are either in shade or with flash.
