MAC’s Rich, Dark, Delicious is an creamy dark chocolate brown with an opaque formula. I wanted to pair it with MAC’s Demi-Blanc, a sheer frosted champagne-based duochrome with purple reflects, to see how the colors would play off one another. The dark brown base really brings out the purple reflects in Demi-Blanc in sunlight (and flash photography, obviously). With indoor lighting the brown base is much more obvious, and there’s even a bit of the champagne shimmer visible.

The result is a shimmery eggplant purple which I think is beautiful!

Base: Sally Hansen Double Duty Strengthening Top & Base Coat
Layer 1: MAC Rich, Dark, Delicious Nail Lacquer
