Who doesn't know about my love affair with Baroness X by now? Hell, I started the fan group on Facebook. One of my favorite shades is the semi-under-the-radar jelly polish DoomJelly. I love it on its own and as undies for the mythic Doomfire.

Here she is, alone. I think I used two medium coats, but it might have been three. I forgot to write it down as this was a regular manicure, and not specifically a swatch. It is the perfect violet jelly. In normal lighting, it is pretty much opaque, though as a true jelly it will never be 100%. But it somehow doesn't leave me with that weird thinning at the tips, and I don't know if thats because of the flat brush or the magical formula...and I don't know that I care. It is just lovely on its own.
Of course, it was designed to be the undies for Doomfire. It is the same violet, but without the Unicorn Pee. DoomJelly allows you to get that perfect deep color without wasting the precious UP. You may be thinking "Oh, I don't think I really need undies..." Well just look at these macros for comparison:
and now with undies:
Now zoomed out. You can see the deep violet of the combo really brings the red shimmer out. Plus it covers the nail line, which we all love.
And here is my finished manicure. I just love the slightly vampier look that it gives to Doomfire (or any of your UP shades, really. Try them all). It also allows me to use just two coats of Doomfire instead of the typical four that is needed for near-opacity.
And now, some shiftporn. I love the green and voilet combo. It's perfect for the Halloween season.
Unicorn Pee is everywhere right now. Do you have a favorite, or are you like me and love them all? Doomfire is definitely among my favorites. It's hard to pass up that purple.
