This mani is one coat of Mercurial over two coats of Ulta3 Wild Berry. Perfect combination! Wild Berry is a dark purple/brown/charcoal grey colour. It kind of shifts depending on the light. I wish I took pics before I added Mercurial, but that's okay. Here's a bottle shot instead...
Mercurial didn't wow me in the bottle as much as the others did, but HOLY CRAP did it surprised me when I put it on. I love, love, love it!
Lovely, yes? This was smooth with three layers of top coat - two of Ulta3 Non Chip and one of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri. I really should try Glitter Tamer soon but I am too scared that I will become addicted to it and run out completely, LOL.
"Multiple sizes and shades of gunmetal, black, silver and lavender hexagons and squares in a metallic grey base. Application requires moderate patience and skill."Application was indeed a little unwieldy (more so than the others I've tried). The glitter was kind of... clumpy? Like, it wanted to stick together. Some of the glitter also didn't want to stay flat. Nothing a little manipulation and prodding couldn't fix though.
A truly lovely polish ♥
