Illamasqua Fern layered with Sally Hansen HD Spectrum

Sally Hansen HD Spectrum layered over Illamasqua Fern

The pattern of shimmer makes my nails look a little bizarrely shaped. Hmm, odd. Anyway... as much as I loved Fern, I needed it to brighten it up a bit. Because bright vibrant blue needs brightening up. Always. It turns out, Fern is a great base color for Spectrum in that it makes it look like the bottle color. Otherwise, all these HD polishes have a tendency to be pretty sheer. Like "won't be opaque in four coats sheer". This was two coats of Spectrum over Fern. Unfortunately, doing it over this matching base color (as opposed to black) totally obliterates the slight purple duochrome in sunlight -- though it still shows up somewhat in low lights... if you look VERY closely. But even though I lost the duochrome, I still love how sparkly this mani turned out to be. I want to try it on my toes!
