Good evening dears. I hope you had a lovely Sunday. Mine was so very meh. Second day out here in the middle of nowhere and my sons soccer team took a whooping all weekend. And it rained on us the entire second game today. I sure hope none of us end up sick. Anywho, I've got a gorgeous deep, jewel tone purple from Cirque to show you tonight. It looks like the sky I see out my car window right now (I promise I am the passenger and not the driver). Coven was actually part of the All Holo's Eve Trio (a set with Lacquer Lust and Serum No 5). The trio was limited edition and these collaboration boxes have been pretty popular so they do sell out. I am hopeful that there will be a Christmas trio from these loverly ladies on the horizon soon! So let's jump in and check out Coven!
*nothing to disclose*
Coven is an "indigo jelly with an orange to green shimmer effect." Holy moly this is a gorgeous polish! I love it's dark, broody shade of purple and the shimmer are what really make the polish. I wore Coven for a few days and it was such an eye-catcher. I spent a good portion of my daylight hours o moving my hands around to see the glints of colors changes. The formula and application were really great. On par with a jelly, a bit sheer, but buildable. No issues with application. I used 3 coats of Coven and finished with a layer of topcoat.
I had several friends who were curios if Coven was a dupe for Coronation. I am happy to report that it's definitely not. I've got some pictures to show you too!
I've got 3 layers of Coronation on my accent nail to show how it looks net to Coven. You can see the color is completely different - more magenta. And there is no green shift in the shimmer.
