This is an older NOTD, Zoya Savita with a layer of CND Effects Amethyst Sparkle.
Savita is a gorgeous polish from the Matte Velvet Winter '09 collection, it's a blue purple with a pink/red shimmer.
Savita's application and drying time are great. It dries like a matte, but not so fast that you can't apply it properly. I used 2 coats, and 1 coat of the CND.
The CND's application is very smooth and I find their bottle shape and the big rubbery cap great.
And I really like the subtle extra that Amethyst Sparkle gives to a polish, I'll probably buy a few more of the Effects in the future :)
I think the 2 combined looks awesome :)
Amethyst Sparkle made the shimmer in Savita stand out more, so the blue in this polish went a little bit more to the background as the lightbox shows well. The blue is still very visible in most light, but it's more purple with the CND on top.
This last picture is a bit less good, but I can't make a new one now, I'm waiting for another polish to dry at the moment :P
And I just saw that this is my 50th blog post, I didn't expect to enjoy the whole blogging thing this much! :)
