Models Own Beetle Juice Purple Blue

    Good evening, Dear Reader!

    I changed polish tonight to Models Own Beetle Juice Purple Blue from their latest collection, which are duochromes.  Purple Blue isn't particularly impressive in the bottle, but it's a lot cooler applied.  Rather than the usual color shifting duochrome pigment, Purple Blue has a bunch of purple and blue shimmery pigment throughout, so both colors are pretty consistently reflected.  I think it works out well.

    For the manicure, I used three coats of color and finished it off with Essie Good to Go.  The soak-of gel base I've had for seven days is starting to have a bit of lifting on one nail (still impressive after five color changes with acetone-based remover used), and Essie Super Bossa Nova wore very well on it  for three days with no chips or tip wear at all.  I liked the gel, so when I remove the worn application, I'll put on a new one.  Anyhow, back to Beetle Juice Purple Blue, after it dried I took pictures under artificial light.

    Here are a couple of closer looks at the shimmer, where you can get a better look and the purple and blue shimmery bits.

    It's not quite what I'd expected, but the name is accurate and it definitely shows two distinct colors at the same time.

    That's the next Models Own Beetle Juice and all I have for you today, Dear Reader, so until next time, love and nail polish to you!
