This week I carried on with Bangle Jangle, first cousin to St Lucia Lilac.  Bangle Jangle was so popular [insert sarcasm here] I couldn't even find it on Essie's site; I'm guessing it wasn't a hit within their winter 2011/12 collection.  Nevertheless, I put my own spin on this smoky colour by adding a layer of Pure Pearlfection; the silver micro glitter gave Bangle Jangle that je ne sais quoi.

In other news, when I went poking around Essie's site I stumbled upon Stroke of Brilliance. If you enjoyed A Cut Above and Set in Stones, then you will be a fan of this blue hued hexagonal glitter. Haul of Fame does a great job of showcasing Stroke of Brilliance's ability to transform any shade.
