NOTW: Princessa Pretty In Purple

So normally when Sergio and I hang out and he goes and gets a haircut, I just sit in the salon and wait. Yeah, he goes to a salon and gets his hair cut, instead of SuperCuts or whatever most men do. It's funny because I cut my own hair. For free lol. But anyways, I normally just sit and wait. There is, however, a nail salon right next door to the salon he goes to so one day I decided to get my nails done.
The salon had very few well known polishes - maybe a handful of OPI. The majority of their polishes were by a brand called Princessa, which I had never heard of before, but the bottle shapes are super similar to the OPI bottles.
Actually if you Google Princessa, there really isn't that much information on them, so I don't even know if they still make colors, or even this color. So, I'm sorry that this post is pretty useless if any of you want this color.
This color totally jumped out at me from their stand of polishes because of the scattered holo glitter pieces.
The base color is a blue toned purple jelly. There's a ton of holo and purple glitter that make it look very disco ball like. Since it was an old polish, the formula was thick and goopy. But I mean, I wasn't really dealing with it so I guess it wasn't my problem.
What I have on my nails is 3 coats of the polish. It layered ok I guess. The glitter was pretty opaque at 1 coat so the other 2 coats just made it more dimensional.
The photo above was with flash at night, and the photo below was with flash outside. You can see the natural base color in the photo below.
If anybody has info on Princessa polishes, I'd love to know :)
