|Essie After School Boy Blazer, Style Cartel & No More Film|
As you can see ASBB is the darkest of the three, this one appears black in most cases. No More Film has more of a grey-purple thing going on, it is still dark but definately more blue than ASBB. And Style Cartel is most blue of the trio and it stays blue in most lights! They are all beautiful and no dupes for sure (I need them all!).
Then I had some tipp wear...
So I did a gradient with Cirque Fascination Street and Ophelia!
|Gradient Essie Style Cartel, Cirque Fascination Street & Ophelia|
The holo in Fascination Street really lifts up the whole colour, it adds light and sparkle. Ophelia drifts happily along in the holoness of Fascination Street and melts into the colour at times and in some lights it pops up and gives it a nice hydrangea twist!
In hindsight I might have added a microglitter to this gradient, like China Glaze All Wrapped Up or Feeling Twinkly, just to give it a bit more sparkle in low light.
