Twinsie Tuesday: Birthstone

18 Dec

This week was an easy one for me.  We’re showing our birthstone colors.  My birthday is in January, so my birthstone is a garnet.  I actually have a polish called Garnet.  Hmm… I wonder what polish I should use for today’s theme?  No brainer.

Garnet (5) WLcopyThis was the first time I’ve actually used Kleancolor Garnet.  It’s a jelly for sure.  You can almost see straight through the bottle.  It looks much deeper in the bottle than on.  I’m sure with multiple coats it would look darker, but I got excellent coverage with one coat so I stopped there.

 To add some extra sparkle, I added a coat of Kleancolor Chunky Holo Scarlet over the top.  Of course I can’t leave well enough alone.  Heaven forbid I just wear some polish without embellishments.  I added a silver dot in the form of OPI DS Radiance to each corner to represent a prong that would hold such a stone in a piece of jewelry.  I don’t like it all that much, but I don’t hate it either.  I do love garnets though.  Such a beautiful deep red color.  Very pretty.Garnet (19) WLcopy
