Red Alert! It's Purple Rain! Swatches

Eurgh, I've had the most horrid day; it started by being iced out of my car because the door had frozen shut and gradually got worse and worse. As such I'm not in a very chatty mood, so thought I would post an old swatch that needs little explaining. 

This is a manicure I rocked in January when I had mini nails. I thought I was over crackle, and as such didn't actually intend to buy Purple Rain Crackle by Barry M - I picked it up accidently as part of an offer in Superdrug. However, I kind of the simple contrast of it over the red below.

The red underneath you ask; well that would be Red Alert by Models Own, an oddly sheer red that builds up to a glossy and lovely finish. Dried quite quickly as well, so a bonus:)

Right, I'm off to bed to say goodnight to this silly day; here's hoping tomorrow is a better (and warmer!) day. Night night peeps x
