Garnet is labeled as a frost, but it's truly a shimmer. Here she is without topcoat:
sorry for the sheet wrinkles, she's not a quick dry polish, though I did give her plenty of time to dry.
I put the polish on yesterday and let it get good and dry so the transformation would be obvious. Unfortunately, there wasn't any sun today, but this is in overcast natural light and I actually think it's best for show you all what this polish does. I love this part! I put a coat of Seche Vite over the top because I needed to head to work right after I took the photos, but ANY top coat creates this transformation.
With topcoat, the blue-red of Garnet becomes this awesome Candy Apple Red with depth and that "lit from within" appearance. This is the color every pinup girl needs to have in her arsenal. Observe:
G E O R G E O U S!
And to reiterate the transformation, here is left and right, can you tell which one has topcoat and which is nekkid?
and closer til it's a bit blurry...
Do I need to tell you that you have to get this polish? Just remember to get it directly from J Pinon and stay away from Peachtree World. They are not authorized dealers and you may not get what you pay for.
I still cannot stop staring at my nails. I've missed this color so much. GAH! Garnet, I love you.
That is all
