NOTD: Prickly Pear & Lilac Fantasy

I've blogged about Models Own 'Lilac Fantasy' previously, and mentioned that I was disappointed how sheer it was; five coats and it still wasn't opaque. I've recently got round to trying it layered over other polishes, in this case Barry M's 'Prickly Pear', one of my favourites from the Gelly Hi-Shine range. In this pairing, I love it! One coat of 'Lilac Fantasy' over two coats of 'Prickly Pear' is perfect in terms of coverage, and has a beautiful pinky-blue shimmer, seen in the photos below. I used OPI's Nail Envy as my base coat, and Seche Vite as a topcoat.
What do you think? Do you like to layer polishes up and see how they combine? What your favourite pairing?
