Tins viola grace a unique duo-chrome

viola grace (in lower case letters, for some reason) is a rare duo-almost-multi-chrome, it turns blue to purple in seconds, depending on the angle that you look at it.  At a really extreme angle there is a gorgeous pink flash that I couldn't capture in these pictures.  I've been wanting to try this brand for a while now and it completely fulfilled my expectations.  Thank you to my friend Tepp who brought me this from Japan.







Layering Order:
2 coats Sally Hansen Lilac Chantilly
2 coats Estessimo Tins 301 viola grace
Barielle Manicure Extender
Seche Vite Topcoat

  2. Pretty reminds me slight of a stargazer polish I have although I think that is a more of a purple duochrome. Lovely
