Emily de Molly’s Test Subject

Two coats isn’t quite opaque - I can see light through my nails - but I don’t have VNL, so I’m going to count this one as “two coats for full coverage.” It’s a lovely blue-violet with a strong red flash and larger, scattered silver or white particles. The final manicure is a bit textured, but not too much more than most glitter-polish manicures. If you want to make sure that the polish won’t snag on anything at all, a single layer of the topcoat of your choice takes care of that issue.
