OPI The Color To Watch + Show It and Glow It

Today I have for you The Color To Watch from OPI's Swiss collection. I'll have to admit that when this collection came out this was the color that least interested me. However, I actually really liked it once on the nails!

The Color to Watch is a shimmery pale purple. It has somewhat of an iridescence to it which makes it glow. It goes on pretty sheer, so this is 3 coats.

I then decided I wanted to try a glitter gradient. I decided to use OPI Show It and Glow it which is a pink/purple glitter filled with random colored glitter. The gradient didn't turn out very well because this is such a thick glitter. However, it still looked really cool and girly. I felt like I had dipped my tips into candy sprinkles or something!
