Below: Blurred photo of the finish to show you how the micro-glitter changes colors.
Below: This is one coat of Dripping Wet over Crystal Ball. It darkens the colors without hiding the micro-glitter in Crystal Ball for a glowing effect.
Below: Dripping Wet is a jelly finish in a very deep burgundy or blood red. I normally use 3-4 thinner coats, as the color initially goes on as almost a raspberry shade, but builds deeper upon each coat.
Tomorrow is the start of Body & Soul's Friday Follower Freebie (details on entering are in the upper right side column), so I thought it might be a good idea to show you the 2 China Glaze polishes that are going to be won by 2 lucky followers. As I mentioned earlier this week, Dripping Wet and Crystal Ball are some of my favorite discontinued China Glaze Shades. My reasons for loving them are varied, but I actually like these for two for quite opposite reasons. They are both in the burgundy family, but still very different. Dripping Wet makes a bold statement. It's dark and vampy, most definitely a jelly finish, dark enough, but still light enough that it looks like a very deep, blood red without ever looking black. Crystal Ball on the other hand, is a more demure shade, a much lighter burgundy than Dripping Wet, but the ever changing micro-glitter fancies it up just enough to make it a definite eye-catcher without looking like a full-blown glitter.
