Below: Desi No. 49, shown using 2 coats, is a jelly finish that has an incredible gloss to it. It's quite sheer on it's own, but I imagine that it would be very useful for layering as I've shown, or even as a Franken base.
Through the kindness of Lynn, one of my readers, today's look was not only a gift from her, but also a recommendation. She suggested putting the Desi polish over the Anna Sui for an even prettier look. I have to agree that she is right! Anna Sui No. 380 is a glitter pink/violet shade that has an extreme amount of glitter in it. It has the rose scent, and of course the bottle design is nothing short of gorgeous. It actually covers just fine on it's own using 2 coats, but as Lynn told me, the Desi polish, which has a clear reddish/pink jelly finish, really enhances the look. I love the finish on this Desi when used alone, although I'm not crazy about the sheerness. It definitely offers up a lot of possibilities though, and I'm wondering which other ones they might have with this type of finish. Their web site isn't too much help in that regard, so if any of you are familiar with the Desi line, share some of your knowledge with us!
