Ulta Lilac Chrome and After Party

I decided to kill two Ulta birds with one stone by layering. I started out with two coats of Ulta Lilac Chrome and topped it off with two coats of of Ulta After Party. After Party consists of small mauve, red and silver glitter in a clear base. It would take too many coats to wear After Party alone (at least for me), but I love how it looks layered over a light color as this. I will have to try other layering combos in the future, but for now I'm enjoying this manicure...




On it's own Lilac Chrome is a sweet pink with a subtle pearly shimmer. I was impressed with how well it covered for being such a light color. No VNL after just two coats. Photos here with a top coat...




I think I didn't realize how long it has been since I've worn pink until I put this polish on. My taste in polish has changed so much from these sweet shimmery polishes to the dark vampy ones and everything in between. However, I do think that they all have their place. This was like a breath of fresh air. Such a sweet color!

  1. I think the two shades layered together look really pretty :-) Lilac Chrome on its own isn't the kind of polish I'd wear myself but it suits you!

  7. Wow! Another great duo. Generally pink and red are a no-no together in my books... But in glitter form it = YAY!!!
    Lovely!
    You saved this pearly pink... I don't tend to wear those very often ... Lol

  8. @Marta, yes usually they don't go, but I think the silver helped incorporate it. And it has been so long since I've worn a pearly pink... crazy :D

  9. I have a question about this brand - I was given a bottle; I painted my nails some three hours before going to bed, but the next day I woke up with "sheet nail art" - and 24 hours later it was not completely dry, I could still leave marks on it. Is this normal?!
