This is one coat of Barielle Falling Star followed by one or two (my memory is failing me here) coats of Barielle Elle's Spell. I would have never thought to pair these two together, but I absolutely love the result. The burgundy jelly of Elle's Spell over the blue of Falling Star produced a purple grape color with flakies shining on top and glitter still visible in the depth. It is certainly not a Fantasy Fire dupe, but I'll happily wear this any day...
This was certainly a lesson to me in pairing unexpected combinations and a reminder to try more of them. Have you ever put two colors that you didn't think would go together and loved the result? What were they? I would love to know what you think of this combination! :)
