Getting that Gleam - Orly Rococo A-Go-Go, AnnasArtAsylum 481804

I'm writing this post through a headache, so I hope it makes sense! D:

Warning: Orly's Rococo A-Go-Go will not look like that on your nails:


But it will if you add a coat of colour shifting polish! The colour shifting polish is shown in the bottle below.


Basically, I bought Orly's Rococo A-Go-Go awhile ago and was a little disappointed by how it looked on the nails.

[Orly Rococo A-Go-Go]

While it's a nice deep magenta colour, it lacked the awesome gold shimmer that is very much present in the bottle.

Under bright indoor lights, the colour is rich and deep, but the gold shimmer is still sadly lacking. Do ignore the horrid tip-wear.


[Base: Orly Rococo A-Go-Go
Top coat: AnnasArtAsylum 481804 franken]
But a coat of colour shifting (or colour morphing, as it's called by some) franken and it really does look like Rococo A-Go-Go in its bottle. The top coat is a polish I made out of AnnasArtAsylum's 481804 pigments and clear suspension base. The colour shift when layered against black is dark pink-red to gold. When layered over Rococo A-Go-Go, it looks a bit more plummy-red.

Isn't the colour shift astonishing? It's so gorgeous! I couldn't help but take dozens of photos of this mani, and I had to restrain from posting them all. I find that colour shift in duochrome polishes is hard to photograph under indirect natural sunlight, but this one certainly flexes its muscles under any lighting.

Under bright indoor lighting, the colour shift is pretty solid as well.

All I need is more suspension base to make more frankens with the other pigments I bought!
