Layering: Gilded Fields

I almost hesitate to call this a layering, because I'm not really sure that any of what's layered inside actually shows through. Nonetheless...

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
1 Coat China Glaze Strawberry Fields
1 Coat SinfulColors Gilded
2 Coats China Glaze Strawberry Fields
1 Coat Borghese Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

I've been on this bright polish kick, and was thinking pink, so... naturally, that meant the hottest pink in my stash. Strawberry Fields is part of the core China Glaze collection. It's glowing hot pink with a pretty gold shimmer mixed in. Definitely a must-have in your collection.

SinfulColors Gilded is really pretty. It's got fine gold and red glitter in a clear base. And in this layering, it got completely lost. Seriously. Strawberry Fields ATE it. Had I used more than 1 coat of Gilded, the results might've been different, but I didn't, so they weren't.

Hrmph.

So this mani didn't turn out exactly how I expected, but I still like it. I'll definitely have to remember Strawberry Fields for this Effie Trinket mani I've been meaning to try. I think the gold shimmer would lend itself nicely to a pretty gold gradient. :)

What do you think of Strawberry Fields?
