For Day 18 of Indie January, I've got a fabulous glitterbomb to blind you with! CrowsToes Absolum - Your Potions Master is a mix of blue, green, orange and black glitters in a clear base, with a little extra sparkle added. I've layered it over two polishes, so you can get a better idea of it's versatility!
The first combination I used was one coat of Absolum over two coats of A England Jane Eyre. Two coats of Seche Vite for a smooth finish. This polish is super packed with glitter, so I applied it like I described in this post.
I really love how the different colours of glitter all pop over the dark base, it was quite stunning!
I also layered Absolum over A England Saint George for a different look. Two coats of Seche Vite.
This combination gives off a completely different look, which is more subdued and just overall glittery. The slight holo base of Saint George was a nice compliment to the glitter, and the teal base blended nicely.
Of course, I'm partial to this polish because of the name. Absolum, as far as I know, is the caterpillar in Alice In Wonderland, and in Tim Burton's recent version is voiced by Alan Rickman. This actor is, of course, known primarily (by my generation) as Professor Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies. One of his most famous lines in The Philosopher's Stone is "I am Snape, your potions master." Polish naming win.
How do you like this polish? What is your favourite layering combination of these two? Or if you own this polish, what do you like to layer it over? :)
