Day 21 - Inspired by a Color featuring Lynnderella's Cauldron Drippings!

When I got Lynnderella's Cauldron Drippings in the mail, I unopened it by a box of polish I had been adding to my spreadsheet and China Glaze Custom Kicks jumped out at me. I think the turquoise base with gold shimmer is a weird, fun color to go with the fugly-pretty combo of Cauldron Drippings. This was one of those times when I just had to put these two things together on my nails immediately, so I would definitely say that I was inspired by these colors! Please enjoy the following picture spam; I had a hard time picking specific pictures, and I figure you'd want as many to look at as you could have :)

macro goodness

1 coat of Custom Kicks and 2 coats of Cauldron Drippings, topped with Gelous then SV. It was still a little bit textural with just the one coat of Gelous.

One major pro and potential con to Lynnderella glitters is that the base usually has some colored shimmer in it, so I feel like you can clearly see the orange shimmer and how it's uneven over the turquoise base. This works really well if you were using a more similarly colored base! I did one coat of the Lynn all over, and then I went back and sort of placed things where I wanted on the second coat. I don't think the orange shimmer is so obvious in person or uneven seeming, but it certainly shows up a lot in these pictures.
