Mattése Elite Amour De Ma Vie

From the Mattése Elite Mon Amour collection, today I have Amour De Ma Vie, a sparkling rainbow glitter in a dark base.  We've had tons of "Happy Birthday" dupes but this is on the darker end of that.  Unlike deborah lippmann's "Forget You" (which one day I will wear, since I do own it), this is more of a microglitter that gets a bit swallowed by its dark base.  I used a base of Poshe, 2 coats and topped with CND Air Dry.

Sadly here in the sun you see more of the rainbow glitter in the bottle than on the nail.  The nail shows more of a red and silver glitter in a dark grey base...  It's an interesting color for sure.  Also this is a thirsty glitter that does dry bumpy, so either lots of top coat OR Lynnderella Glitter Tamer (if you're able to find it).

Here in the indirect sun, you can really see how bumpy it is - should have used Glitter Tamer.

Here in the shade you can see some of the blue glitter come alive.  Yay blue glitter!  

And finally indoors with the flash...  This polish hates my camera and won't focus.  Grr.

Overall, interesting but too dark for me for spring.
