Accessorize ~ Pink Spice and Aztec
Red/golden duochrome and Purple/golden/green duochrome, both shimmery
Pink Spice is a dupe for MAC’s Bad Fairy, and Aztec is a dupe for MAC’s Mean and Green. I must admit that they’re both impressively pretty in the bottle. They are obviously different colours, but the shimmer in them is the same colour, so I figured that I’d make a gradient with these two pretties.
I started out with one coat of Pink Spice, which is such a pretty shimmery duochrome. It would be fantastic on its own, that’s for sure. I didn’t take a pic of this step – I went directly to the sponging instead.
I sponged twice to get a decent coverage with Aztec. I must admit that these autumn colours aren’t my first choice of polishes, but these two are really pretty.
Here’s my gradient – there’s one coat of Poshé top coat on:
And from another angle, holding the other bottle:
I love the way the duochromes work in this mani. On the last pic you can see both orange, red, purple and green, and I really dig that!
I figured that this mani would be perfect for some fall leaves, I just wasn’t sure which colour I’d stamp with. I tried with black first, but that totally drowned and weren’t very visible. I switched to white instead. It wasn’t the perfect colour choice, but hey… I used Bundlemonster's stamping plate BM04 and a no name white stamping polish.
Here’s the final mani, with an additional coat of Poshé top coat on:
Another one, just for the heck of it:
You won’t be seeing a lot of autumn manis from me, even though I quite like this. What do you think? Do you like the two Accessorize polishes together?
