Barielle Elle's Spell over Falling Star

I spotted this Barielle layering combination on their Facebook page a few days ago posted by another fan. The swatch was a bit blurry, but in it's blurriness reminded me of a little polish named Fantasy Fire. I knew instantly that I had to try the combination. As soon as the previous manicure came off, this is what I put on.

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! :)
