Candied Violets for Yasmeen

Today I have a gorgeous polish combo to share with you. I will admit it took me 21 hours (Thank you Lynn for keeping track for me LOL I love you!) to decide what my undie color would be. I already knew what was going on top, but had a really hard time finding the perfect shade for under. Now I will tell you something, that color decision could have changed at any given minute depending on my mood. I think most folks who are polish addicts can attest to this happening to them as well. So here is what I ended up with. Starting with the top first, just to be different today.
Candied Violets is a glitter polish made by Hit Polish. The mini size (5ml) are $4, but keep your eyes open for sales. Rachel is always doing something special for her customers!

I can think of tons of color combos for this one!
This is the description given on their listing: A clear base with super fine orchid holographic glitter, fine matte white hex, small matte aqua hex, small white hex glitter, medium baby blue hex, medium matte lavender hex, large pastel green hex and large bubblegum squares.

 I can't tell you enough how much I love the polishes from Hit Polish! They are so easy to apply they seriously go on like a dream. You can barely feel any texture from the glitters on your nails. I've never used a topcoat with any of my Hit Polish, and I've never had an issue with raised or snagging glitters.

I paired Candied Violets up with Yasmeen from Zoya.

 I got Yasmeen in one of my nail pal packages and am in love with the color. It is a gorgeous purple with lots of red shimmer and a bit of gold shimmer to it. I'm not always the best with descriptions so here is the official description from Zoya: Dark blue-toned purple base with very strong red-toned medium purple shimmer and hints of gold duochrome. The ultimate complex purple for maximum drama. 
Here are my results with them paired up.

Here is a super out of focus picture to try to show all the sparkle.

I have to admit I have had this on for a few days now and am a little sad to take it off. I truly love this combo.

  1. OOooOOoohh! Sparkles! I love this combo. I think I need both these polishes now. I'm pretty sure I don't have Yasmeen. Is it sad that i can't remember what polishes I do and do not own? Haha.

    1. You do need them both Jessi! And no, it is not sad at all, I can't remember all the time either. I think forgetting what polishes you have comes from all the fumes we subject ourselves to LOL.
