Mercurial Update

After my first experience trying glittery Lynnderella Mercurial (read about it here), I was a little… well, unhappy.

It was nowhere near as shiny or as grey as I had seen in other pictures. The glitter pieces did not show their true colours, mainly because of the many, many coats I had used. You may recall I did not use a base colour, so had to reapply coats in order to get full coverage.

Yesterday I was still wearing my beautiful A-England Guinevere when I decided to give Mercurial another shot. Guinevere is a pale mauve–not exactly the colour you may think of using as a base with Mercurial. But I decided to try it.

I used only one thicker coat of Mercurial as I did not want its charcoal base “staining” the glitter. I also used a coat of Gelous, followed by OPI’s top coat.

Here is the new pic vs the old one below.

What do you think? Is Mercurial better on its own or with a base colour?

    I really like Mercurial with a base color. It tones it down and makes it more classy and pretty rather than “HELLO Glitter”
