Time Is A Face On The Water Inspiration

From Mariah, the maker: Stephen King's "Wizard and Glass", the 4th book in the Dark Tower series. This series means a lot to me and I have many friends because of it.

Time Is A Face On The Water Swatches

Maker description: a metallic sky blue multichrome holographic, featuring strong shifts from lavender and pink to orange and green. 2-3 coats for an opaque look. 

3 coats + topcoat

Formula: Great formula. Easy to work with and goes right where you want it.

My thoughts: Heart eyes. Does that cover it? But yeah, this is one seriously pretty polish. The shimmer is SO strong. It has a very glowing, lit from within look to it that GLL does so well. It can look very different depending on lighting and angle, so I've included lots of photos below, all of which I feel are color accurate. 

Photo note: I wasn't thrilled with all my original photos, so I swatched this a second time. I filed my nails in between, so if you see my nails grow and shrink between photos, that's why. I've chosen the best/most accurate from each round to showcase here.
