Beauty UK Smokey Lilac with a bit of OPI magic NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 23 - 2011

I liked this delicate combo of Beauty UK’s Smokey Lilac with OPI Golden Rainbow on top.  A dusting of holographic sparkle always goes a long way to brightening my day!

Of course, the Beauty UK polish is a bargainous snip at only £2.49 a bottle, though I believe that OPI’s Golden Rainbow might be a little harder to come by I’m sure that the effect can be reproduced with something like Northern Lights Holographic Top Coat.

The above mani shows three coats of the Beauty UK and a single coat of OPI Golden Rainbow.  Pretty!

What are you wearing on your nails today?

    I *adore* the smokey lilac polish. It’s one of those ones that you think should cost a bunch more money.

  8. So pretty, especially with glittery top coat. I remember eyeing this up at The Clothes show and totally regret going for another colour now! x

    Another similar topcoat is Servin’ Up Sparkle from the Serena Williams Wimbledon collection. The glitter is the same distribution/shape and also holographic. Perhaps the only difference is it’s a little more silver, but I couldn’t say without comparison ..
    Gorgeous manicure!
