China Glaze ~ 108º layered

When I got the China Glaze 2011 Summer Collection, I was both excited over the delicious colours, and disappointed that so many of them were super sheer. I’m starting to appreciate the possibilities of sheer polishes more, so rather than whining I decided to do some layering.

I wanted a base that was within the same colour family as 108º, so I settled for ELF Purple Pleaser, a purple/fuchsia crème. After two coats this polish was still a bit streaky, but as I was going to add the China Glaze on top I stopped there. I painted just one coat of 108º, and completely loved the result. All the glass flecks really sparkle, and the shades worked so well together!
