Emily de Molly’s Riot of Shadows

The base shade is a very attractive washed denim blue. The color shift - predominantly red, with gold and green at the edges - is very strong! This isn’t a color shift that will only show up in certain lights. It shows up more strongly in bright sun or under blue light, but you still see the red and gold fairly prominently. I do need to use three coats for full opacity when I don’t use this over another color.
