It’s fall now in Australia and New Zealand, so here’s another fall color for everyone in the southern hemisphere: a juicy burgundy.
I’m sorry that my photos don’t show it better, but thes was distinctly burgundy rather than black.
I made this with 10 drops of creme red (Essie Jelly Apple) and three drops of black creme (China Glaze Liquid Leather). From there, I added about 5 drops of clear polish to the mix. This was three thin coats.
If you add creme black to any red, you’ll get burgundy. Add the black slowly, drop by drop.
This was nice, but sort of threatening. I wasn’t in a dangerous mood, so I decided to lighten it up with some Konad.
I used the zebra pattern on Konad plate M57 with white Konad special polish.
I then painted over with a translucent dark pink/burgundy glitter (Orly Entourage- sorry, not Orly Glitz as I originally stated) and it softened the contrast between the white Konad and the dark background. I did leave the tip of the pinkie white so you could see what it looked like. I also stuck on a black jewel on the pinkie.
