I know, I know, I was really trying to think of something to layer this over other than taupe. But then I remembered how pretty and shimmery Prosecco was, and it just sort of happened. And it's a glittery kind of wonderful, isn't it?!?
First of all, it's been a little while since I used one of my SinfulShine polishes on its own, and it made me a little sad that the line was reformulated. Now, SinfulShine polishes are actual gel polishes that require a special top coat in order to seal everything together. I like to change my polish way too much for that, but the reformulation did bring back Prosecco. And that's a good thing, because Prosecco is the last polish the nail blogging world collectively swooned over. Hard to believe that was a whole year ago. I feel like we're swooning less these days, but that's a completely different topic for another day.
In my original swatches, I used three coats, but this time around, four was the magic number. Prosecco is an almost opaque purple leaning, grayish tan with super-fine shimmer that flashes mainly gold, but I see copper and green, too. It's thee perfect polish to layer underneath Autumn People. What else would you want underneath a "mix of red ultrachrome flakes, gold flakes, and multicolored chameleon flakes with neon purple shimmer?" Nothing, I tell you! These two go together beautifully!!!
I can't say that I'll be changing my polish around tonight. Nope. I'm keeping this beauty on for at least another day, maybe two. In the meantime, I'll be giving my cuticles the love they lost during #31DC2015 and I may or may not be working feverishly on NaNoWriMo. (I totally am.) You know, as long as my nails don't distract me too much!
