I started out with a base of Storm Bird and used my dotting tools to add Purple Rain in all different sizes. I was glad you can still see the metallic character of Purple Rain even in small dots (if you look at the large version of the pics anyway), and I was pleasantly surprised at how neat they look together!
I have admired Storm Bird from afar for along time trying to figure out if I really need another gray in my collection. I definitely think its worth it! I really love this color, and I can see myself wearing it a lot in the future as well as using it for more nail art. I think it will be a mainstay for me in the spring especially. I also need to remember to do a full mani with Purple Rain while its still snowy out - I think the metallic purple is a great winter color!
