I couldn't decide between a-england Princess Tears and a-england Ascalon so I decided to wear both in a half moon manicure.
Both are amazingly beautiful holos with a mesmerizing lavender/lilac flash. How could I possibly choose between them?
I started with 2 coats Princess Tears then I was so stunned by her beauty it took me 2 days to get up the courage to cover her up.
Yep I spent 2 days staring at my nails under every lighting condition I could come up with (but that's not unusual for me).
Look blushing rainbows :)
I really wanted to see how this would look with the darker Ascalon so I went with a simple half moon design.
This is just one coat of Ascalon.
Wow! The holo was even more obvious in the darker colour and the lilac/lavender flashes of each played so well together.
I wore this for a week. A week without any chipping or tip wear. A week of staring at my nails and tilting my hands back and forth to
catch the rainbows while bursts of lavender light rain down my finger
Does it look like my finger tips are a bit red and swollen? It's just an optical illusion. Unfortunately the pink tones of Princess Tears, and a little less so Ascalon, don't work so well with my skin tone. It looked like my finger tips were sunburned but the way my nails were flashing I don't think anyone noticed my skin. It's weird how colours can trick the eye like that.
