Since I recently went a bit crazy picking up Sinful Colors that I didn’t have, I went ahead and got the new purple polish called Flight to See. The other two polishes from this grouping (all bird related names) are probably on my need to pick up list!
Flight to See is a sheer-ish purple with an opalescence that gives it an almost duo-chrome look in certain lighting. Although this is quite sheer, I wouldn’t recommend an undie unless you have a one-coater purple (like Color Club – In My Tribe). I used three coats of Flight to get full opacity. I topped the base color with a coat of Seche Vite to help with the drying time.
Once the base was dry, I stamped on top with M Polish – Apricot Delight using Bundle Monster plate BM-XL13, an elegant scrolling floral print, and topped with one more coat of Seche!
Here is a macro shot of this combination, you can get a better view of the shift in the color:
- Essie – Grow Stronger Base Coat
- Sinful Colors – Flight to See
- M Polish – Apricot Delight
- Seche Vite – Dry Fast Top Coat
This turned out completely regal! Apricot Delight really does come across as a metallic gold polish when stamped on a suitably dark color. I really want to layer Flight to See over a darker purple to see how it looks. The color is gorgeous and worth picking up, especially if you can catch it during one of the 99¢ sales at Walgreens.
