... Lavender Nails for Caylee Anthony ...

The lovely Facebook group Nail Polish and Gossip today is having "Lavendar Nails for Caylee Anthony". I'll be the first to admit I know little about this case but from what I've gathered whether you believe mum is innocent or guilty - you can't help but feel for the precious little girl that was taken too soon from this world.  So Lavender nails it is today.

For some reason I seem to have a lot of blue polishes and a lot of purple polishes but no lavender - so I've gone for a compromise of something that is blue and purple.

Chemistry 744
Purchased from Essential Beauty / Essential Distribution - $4.55 AUD
From what I can see on the piCture pOlish site this looks similar in the bottle to Ozotic 744 ... is it purple or is it blue? The Ozotic line is that it's a "colour flop". It really changes in the light so it's really neither blue or purple for very long - very pretty and mesmerising though.

I seem to have picked a few of these Duo-Chromes lately and I'm finding the challenge is more trying to find the best way to wear it. I've decided to showcase it on both a black and white base

The polish has a slight glitter shimmer through it aswell but it's very sheer and streaky. I didn't seem to notice the streaks so much on the black base but I could on white and also on a natural nail. Really it's hard to believe that the base coat can make so much difference on this polish. The blue will shift slightly to purple but try as I might I couldn't get that on film. The purple just stayed purple though.
Black Base - Rimmel 60 seconds 800 Black Out
White Base - BYS French White

I won't leave you with a final verdict as this post isn't a total review post and I will revisit this polish in the future. I think it will make an interesting top coat if I try to make some nail art with black and white underneath.

Rest in Peace Caylee
