Base for my bridal nails- Elianto, Sparkling Diva Lilac

Hi Kids!
Tomorrow morning, Jim and I are driving 1 1/2 hours to Elkton, Maryland for a marriage license. Since there is a 48 hour wait after application to get married, we'll be traveling back on Monday (I'm working Sat & Sun) to get married by the Justice of the Peace.

I doubt very much that this mani will last until Monday, but I wanted to do something. Having Bridal nails for the marriage license app will have to do...besides, it's not like we weren't married to each-other before. (Married for 12 years, divorced for 10- for those of you who don't know).

I received Elianto Sparkling Diva Lilac in a swap from Thriszha of Fab Ur Nails. The moment I opened my package, I knew that this shimmering, glass flecked polish would be the one for my "day".

The base color of Elianto SD Lilac is a sheer, cool lilac, that leans blue and slightly dusty. It would never reach opacity on its' own but for the super-duper amount of glass fleck that flashes a warm raspberry. I love high contrast and juxtaposition, and  is all about being cool and hot, soft and fiery.

I have no clue what nail art I'm going to put on this mani. I usually leave pretty and interesting polishes alone.

No single picture does Elianto SD Lilac justice...you'll have to use your imagination to piece together standout facets from each picture into one polish.
Probably the most color accurate, but lacks the hot flashy glass flecks. You can see a glimpse of it (enlarge pic) on the left side of both my middle and ring fingernails. Very metallicaly looking.













The glass fleck flash also visible in this pic...right side of nails.
