Alta Costura Vernis Abstraction

Today I have instant nail art in a bottle! This is Abstraction by Alta Costura Vernis which was sent to me by my lovely friend Red :-). Abstraction is a mix of black matte shard glitter, black matte medium and large glitter, silver mini glitter, silver bar glitter and large neon multicoloured matte hex glitter. It is seriously packed!

The best way to wear this polish is layered over white to make the multicoloured neon hexes stand out, they are slightly translucent and the white gives them more opacity and makes them pop.

Abstraction isn't the easiest polish to work with, the neon hexes cant be seen very well on the brush so its hit and miss if you have any on the brush at all. I personally think this is worth the work though. The swatches here show two coats of Abstraction over a white creme base followed by one coat of Gelous and one coat of Seche Vite.
