nails inc primrose hill

Today's manicure is nails inc primrose hill. I bought it from Sephora for $19.50. It's a limited edition polish that is only available in the more expensive, decorative crystal cap bottle.
primrose hill is a mellow grayish lavendar with pinkish purple shimmer. It's fantastic because it has a secret color shift. As a massively crazy nail polish addict and collector, I can't tell you how many times a beautiful duochrome/color shift that looks entrancing in the bottle just doesn't show up on the nail at all. It's such a disappointment. I can't really catch the color shift looking at this bottle, but at certain angles to the light, the normally pinkish purple shimmer flashes green.
Sorry about the tipwear. I did this manicure on Sunday night and it was raining on Monday, so I had to wait until Tuesday for the sun.
This mani is one coat Spa Ritual Lacquer Lock bc, one coat CND Stickey bc, two coats of nails inc primrose hill, and one coat of Seche Vite.
