CND Fall 2009 Colour & Effects Collection Swatches Part 1: #536 Eclectic Purple with #563 Raspberry Sparkle

When worn alone, the CND Colour & Effects Collection #536 Eclectic Purple is a cute glossy bubblegum purple.

Add a sheer layer of #563 Raspberry Sparkle on top and it instantly turns into a purple with red undertones that shows up a lot better in person (Sorry ladies my camera refuses to capture the red micro sparkles).
