Fit for a princess

Back when my nail polish collection was small enough to store in a single tray under my desk (my collection has since multiplied at a horrifying rate), I swatched Essie St Lucia Lilac for the first time. I recently decided to revisit it, and add something extra by topping it with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Strobe Light. The result is pretty--I got compliments, one friend demanded this combination be her next mani from me--but the combination of lilac and sparkly-ness just reads too princesses-and-unicorns for my taste.

The picture below I posted on Instagram shows the glitter in Strobe Light a bit better:
Strobe Light's small and tiny round pinky-lavender and holographic glitter caught my attention after admiring how it looked by itself on my cousin's nails. I'm not brave enough to try to remove 3-4 coats of this glitter off all ten fingers, but maybe I'll try an accent nail next time?

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to read and comment! I do my best to reply to all of them within 1-2 days, especially if there is a question. Please be aware that comments containing links may be edited to remove the links or not approved at all.
