While swatching the Lippmann's I showed you yesterday, I decided to do a few variations with two of the polishes, Ruby Red Slippers and Happy Birthday. I didn't touch Superstar - it IS perfection! So these are a couple of different looks I came up with for RRS and Happy Birthday.

The first one I did was to add RRS over Essie - Lollipop. I really like the way this came out. It just gave RRS a brighter look. I only put one coat over Lollipop and I think that was enough to just give it a little kick.

This is what 3 coats of just RRS looks like above.

And below you will see one coat of RRS over Essie's Lollipop:

Next I wanted to layer Happy Birthday over a couple of colors, so I used two metallic ones from China Glaze. The silver one is Millennium, and the gold one is 2030 from the Khrome collection. (THANK YOU DANA!!)

Happy Birthday over the metallics is awesome. So much better than by itself. Ruby Red Slippers looks amazing.

I love the variations, from far they really look like paint splatters. I need to get my hands on Bday polish pronto!
