Day 6 - Violet: Zoya Adina + Hits Can Can

Day 6 is violet, and it features another Zoya promo purchase and some flakies and wayyy too many pictures, so be prepared! This is Adina, named after the blogger Adina from Krazey Beauty. The two main colors are a violet and green-blue flash, but there is also a lovely sort of magenta color in-between.

Next I put one layer of Hits Can Can, a polish I got in my group order to Brazil with Nailtique (a Polish Ninja!) in the fall, over Adina. Can Can is a purple-colored base with blue-green flakies in it. It was really difficult for me to get pictures of all the shimmer and slight color shifts in my layered combination, though, and I can assure you it looks way more fascinating in person. Hilariously, it reminds me a lot of my jelly sammich manicure.

this is that more magenta color shift 

here's a blurry, awesome picture of flakies

Because Zoya formulas are 3-free and Hits brand is not, they don't play super well together. However, I think in this case it worked well for me because it allowed more of the base color to show through. You can see some of the green flash!
