I’ve hoped to get my hands on the new Shellac colors set to become available this month, but unfortunately they haven’t yet debuted at my local CosmoProf. So in the meantime to satisfy my craving, I played around with layering and ended up with this deep burgundy shade. Pictured here is CND Shellac with two layers of Fedora topped with one coat of Decadence. The resulting shade reminds me of one of my all-time favorites, Essie’s Sole Mate. Using the CND Additive in Pink Gold Sparkle-Effect I created a subtle glitter fade, with more sparkle concentrated on the tips and fading ombré-style to a darker shade at the base.
I’m pretty pleased with the outcome! It’s subtle enough that it doesn’t seem too flashy to wear on all ten nails, and would definitely be office appropriate in my opinion. What do you think?
(Yes, I realize I’m holding the Haute Pink in this photo, not the Pink Gold that I actually used. No, there isn’t a reason for this. I just got mixed up.)
