Swatch Krizia Purple Haze : Simple Nail using vinyls

Another Krizia beauty from their new range of holo glitters
Krizia Purple Haze is a purple leaning to blue with micro glitters in a tinted base.
2 coats to opaque but this needed more time to dry. I suspect the hot humid weather here is causing this. Slightly patchy but the second coat almost smoothes things over.

Base: Krizia Purple Haze
Deep V using straight nail vinyls and sponging Jordana LA City nights
All topped with HKgirl

Fun Lines using Krizia Recessionista

Another stunner from Krizia Enterprise
In Sunlight
Base: Krizia Recessionista
Pointer: Nail vinyls, painted over with Miss Claire A4
Rest of the fingers: free handed with Miss Claire A4
All topped with HK girl

In shade
This one's called Recessionista and its filled with micro pink and purple glitter with bits of holo.
It dries to a matt gritty finish and takes a top coat to bring back the sparkle.
Takes 2 coats for full coverage but I would give it 10 minutes in between coats to dry if you are in a humid place like mine.

Floral Gradient: Krizia Mrs.Sibley swatch

Another pretty one from Krizia! Its called Mrs.Sibley

Base: A gradient of Models own Pink Veneer and blueberry muffin
Topped with Krizia Mrs.Sibley

Mrs.Sibley is an anthology created by Edgar Lee Masters. Her poem goes as this:
THE SECRET of the stars,—gravitation. 
The secret of the earth,—layers of rock. 
The secret of the soil,—to receive seed. 
The secret of the seed,—the germ. 
The secret of man,—the sower. 
The secret of woman,—the soil. 
My secret: Under a mound that you shall never find. 

Well our Mrs.Sibley is secretively mysterious and made up of iridescent micro flakies in duo-chrome which shift shades from green-gold to purple-pink. Its a lovely topper and I suspect it would look even more pretty over darker shades. But I just had to try this over some lighter shades to see the effect. Check my insta feed for a video showing the change of shades in bottle.

This one did not dry fast it was sticky even after 10 mins and took maybe another 10-15 mins to get rock hard. 

Stamped with BP L-004 using Konad pastel pink
Pink stud for accent. Wasnt sure if its looking good or not so eventually removed it after the pic.

You can contact Krizia on her FB or IG page.
