I have always maintained some distance from sheer, glossy or glittery shades. Somehow, they always seemed ordinary to me. I would always buy matte shades only. But as I mentioned my taste these days are changing. I bought a lot of glitter nail polish and now I am slowly moving towards the sheer and glossy shades. I always used matte finishes since they make a perfect base for nail art. You know the acrylic paints are not glossy and they would then make a mismatch.
But off late I happened to find some ‘Pearl Finish’ Acrylic Paints which made me a step closer to pearl finish glossy nail paints due to the possible harmony between them. To add to it , I also deeply indulged in stamping plates and paints , I never stamped earlier. So now I have all the more reason to go sheer and pearly and glossy.

Color : I have really been impressed by this color. It is a definite show out in the crowd. It is a little dusty brown color with purples and golden.The purple is somehow not well captured in the pics. Its a wonderful combination. I don’t have any colors with gold or golden undertones because I find them awefully common. But this color attracted me at once. The purple, brown and gold swirls are really mesmerizing.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is quite good. After application it golden shine becomes dominant and gives royal feeling to the application.One coat is fair but two coat is required to bring the drama. You can see the shine of polish without the top coat.
Overall Rating: This was the first colors from the Colorshow range. I am in love with this color and I am glad I picked this rather than going for my usual matte shades. Yes this was from the lot I picked up in Jaipur and my husband also got the entire set, so I have this in doubles ( So you should expect this in a Blog Sale soon) 🙂 🙂
