31 Day Challenge: Day 21, Inspired by a Color

Inspired by a color? This was a tough challenge for two reasons: one, because I have a migraine and two, because it seems so deceptively easy! Kinda picture heavy (but not so much wordy!)

But I chose Essence Where is the Party? It is a gorgeous duochrome. This went on wonderfully! I did two coats.  The picture above shows the lovely purple of it.

This is the green of the duochrome (under artificial light). Amazing huh! Such a pretty polish!

Duochromes are really hard to capture on camera, but I thought this picture was an excellent representation of the polish! Look at the purple and the green!

Now for the inspiration........the Essence color is called Where is the Party? Well, when you add all five Finger Paints Special Effects (Twisted, Asylum, Motley, Flecked, and Flashy) you get a party on your hands!!!! Oh yeah! Party time! So pretty!

Closeup!!! Look at the colors of flakie goodness! Love it!

And for kicks and giggles I used China Glaze Matte Magic to matte the crap out of it! Still gorgeous!

What do you think? Do you like when glitter and flakies are matte? I think they totally change the quality, it's like a whole new look!
