Yesterday I showed you the 'after' potion of what I did with Hits Mari Moon Dreamer (one of the polishes I got in my swap) and said that I'd show you the 'before' part today, so I could give the polish the full attention it deserves. So here goes. :)
Dreamer is, at head-on first glance, a blue-purple duochrome. But even at this head-on glance, it's not typical. It has little micro-flecks of teal-blue and purple glitter that catch the light; you can see some below:

But then, when you start moving it around, it starts to shift, and the color intensifies. Not just through blues and purples, but through wines and golds, and finally into a full-on coppery red:
|There it is! I can't take a picture of a manicure without a cotton fiber sticking to a nail...>.<|

|Hits Dreamer...Never get tired of that rainbow of colors|
|Hits Dreamer--yes, it really is that pretty.|
Yes, it really is that pretty. Every color that you see in the bottle shows up on your nails. Every time the light changes or you move your finger, a new color appears. The colors contrast and combine as you watch--it's mesmerizing.
I don't know what else to say except...man, I gotta get myself down to Brazil. With a really, really big empty suitcase. :)
Thanks for reading!
