Orly’s Galaxy Girl

A deeper warm purple with brown-green duochrome. I have an eyeshadow that tries to be like this (Bare Escentuals' Popular) but it just looks muddy. This looks…not quite elegant, not quite striking, some blend of the two.

This required three coats for even coverage and total opacity. The fourth coat deepened the base color a bit. As always, use a base coat with any glitter polish - it makes it much easier to remove. (You'll still be digging glitterbits out from your cuticle-line for days, though. I think that's just one of those things you deal with, like having to file your taxes every year.)
