China Glaze - Strike Up A Cosmo topped with OPI - Movin Out and OPI - Glitter Bit Of Music

A few days ago I was fiddling around with China Glaze Strike Up A Cosmo, just to get it a bit less grainy and harsh. The colour is very nice, the structure is a bit too flaky and rough for me (perhaps, in hind side I should add a bit of thinner as well). The solution I came up with was to put OPI Movin Out on top of two layers of SUAC. And to top it all off I used OPI Glitter Bit Of Music to get back a bit of the golden sparkle SUAC has. The result is a much smoother polish with loads of sparkle (red in low light en golden in day light) and a bit of the duochrome goodness of Movin Out!

This is what the cocktail looks like:

The combination is delicate but good, I think. SUAC looks a bit more warm (good thing with my skintone) and much smoother then without Movin Out.
