JLB unnamed purple shimmer

I'm sort of on the fence with this one - I love the color and finish in the bottle but felt kind of "meh" about it on my nails.  Looking at the photos it looks pretty nice on me, so I'm not sure if they reflect what it really looked like or if I was just having a non-purple day. :)

I liked the way this one looked without a glossy finish, so I added a matte gel topcoat over it.  This is one of those shades that people either love or hate. I love it.

It seemed right to wear these together since they look so good next to each other in the bottles. I keep forgetting how much I like dotted manis.

I felt like wearing a fun multicolored mani. The sponged base colors didn't come out as deep as I intended but the end result was still enjoyable.

Wow, I've had this one unworn for at least 8 years! The last one from this brand that I wore for a full mani was the lovely blue one - Star. I'm glad I held on to this one - the color is quite lovely, especially with the contrast of the white stamping.

On the hunt for a 1-coat white gel polish. Obviously this isn't it.

Le Chat Dare to Wear - Peach Blast

COMMENTS:
I picked up a few neons last summer even though I rarely wear neons (because with such high contrast against my skin, I feel like I always need to tone them down somehow - like with stamping). I'd heard these were 1-coaters, but alas I needed 2 for my mani.

Nice textures - as always they look much better when completely dry (last two photos).
