NOTD: Layering Fun!

A while ago, I saw an amazing post on Dizzy Nails (Original Post HERE). Go check out her post on it; her pictures are amazing!She says that it was a manicure that was inspired by some girls on the MUA boards. When I saw her take on it, I was floored!! It was such an amazing combo, I literally had to do my nails right away!~
It was so amazing because I actually owned all the colors she used! The colors include:

~Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 'Purple Pizazz'
~OPI 'Last Friday'
~Clarins 230

Here is how mine came out:

How to Achieve this Look

1. Apply one or two coats of Sally Hansen Purple Pizazz.
I applied two, but I think one may be better. This is a gorgous purple jelly with red shimmers.
One coat

2 coats
2. Apply one coat of OPI Last Friday.
Of course, you can use another glitter if you don't have this one. Just make sure it's a sparse glitter and that the base color is very sheer. This glitter works great because the glitters are a little chunky, but not too big.

3. Apply one more coat of Purple Pizazz
This will incorporate the glitter into the the polish, making it look like the glitter was part of the purple polish. If you wish you can stop here, because it actually looks really beautiful already!

4. Apply one coat of Clarins 230. Then apply a top coat.

You are done!!! Here is the mani in the sunlight:
