Nail of the Day: Silvery Lilac (aka Unicorn Blood)

There was pretty much no question about what I'd paint my nails with today- I could not wait to use this new polish :) It's been sitting on my desk since I bought it, and I still can't stop looking at it!

I used two coats, and added a coat of Models Own Swan Lake to my ring finger as a bit of an accent nail (not that it's at all needed, I just love glitter!)

I think it looks even better on the nails than it does on the swatch I posted- the pinky purple and green shades really show through well, and I can now see why Barry M have called it silvery lilac- there are lots of tiny silver shimmery particles running through it :) I've decided that it reminds me of unicorn blood- this is almost the exact colour I pictured when the first Harry Potter book mentions unicorn blood (isn't that a strange coincidence) What do you think?









Are you as addicted to duo chrome polish as I am? :)
