CQ: Silver Violet over OPI: Do You Lilac It?

I picked up Silver Violet the other day. I tried to wear it on its own, but it just did not work for me. It's super sheer and wasn't even opaque at three coats. Not only that, but it just looked washed out against my skin. That's when I decided to layer it over Do You Lilac It?.
DYLI? is a lilac creme and a perfect shade for Easter and spring. Silver Violet is lilac with silver shimmer.

Two coats DYLI?, no topcoat (natural light):

One coat of Silver Violet over two coats of DYLI? (natural light):


DYLI? is a standard OPI creme, which means great formula, glossy finish, quick drying time, etc. As I said before, Silver Violet is very sheer, but the formula itself isn't bad. I guess I'll only ever use it for layering.

What are some of your favorite shades that you can only use for layering?

Happy painting!

Love that layering effect. I have some CND effects for layering and an import that I got for layering. However, my most favorite lacquer that was not intended for layering but I found was very cool when used that way (very sheer) OPI Dazzle Me.

@LAcquerware...Dazzle Me is gorgeous! It has a nice glass-flecky look to it.

Thanks ABOP!
