Essie Shine of the Times over Alix Avien

I know I've been behind on posting regularly, but I promise I have a few posts coming this weekend.

Today I have a lovely layering combination to show you! First I used a lovely polish that I received from my Secret Santa on PAA from Romania, Theodora (I will have a post about my gift this weekend). The brand is Alix Avien. The polishes do not have names at all, and since its my only polish from this brand, I'm just going to call it by the brand name.

This polish is a pretty burgundy with a subtle shimmer. I used two coats and no top coat. The polish could have been a one coater for someone with shorter nails, but I had just a hit of visible nail line. The application was great. It went on smooth and the consistency was practically perfect. Not too thick, not too thin.

Against the red toned backdrop, Shine of the Times flashes green, copper, gold and orange. We are nearing the Winter season, but this combo is the essence of Autumn. All the leave colors condensed into one lovely space.

This is one coat with a thick coat of Poshe on top. I love how many flakes are in one layer of this polish! I cannot wait to try other combinations.
