NOTD: Julep's Alice and Cameron, or Lilac Loveliness

Go ask Alice, I think she'll know.  And if she doesn't, maybe Cameron will :-)  In case I've lost anyone, this should explain:
Julep's Alice is a lovely lilac satin, and I could see Alice in Wonderland's dress being this color.  Or perhaps someone's hair, depending on what altered realm we are entering.  Or if they're Hollywood progeny, a la Ireland Baldwin.  Alice's formula was lovely and this is two coats with Zoya's base and top coats.
I wanted to use Cameron with Alice in some fashion, and finally settled on this alternating glitter gradient.  Cameron is part of the Stardust, or textured, finish polishes.  These can be opaque in one coat, but if you wait just a bit as it dries, you can drag it out for that gradient effect.
I really like how this turned out, and while these are not colors I normally gravitate towards, they do scream spring to me. 
TGIF, and Maggie says:
Feed your head, or better yet, roll around with me!

  1. This lilac polish is gorgeous!! I have a Sally Hansen color that is similar, but it's terribly streaky. Was this one streaky at all?

    1. It really is! I don't like flat textured polishes, and this as a little complexity to it.
