China Glaze Prismatic Chroma Glitters: Skittles Over Black

By Goosesglitter @GoosesGlitter
This is my FAVORITE way to wear the China Glaze Prismatic Chroma Glitters: as skittles over a black base. While they're also gorgeous on their own, I love how the black really brings out the colors in the duochrome glitter base on each of these.

All of these are shown at one thin coat over one coat China Glaze Liquid Leather. All of them are made up of a duochrome micro glitter base sprinkled with multi-colored medium glitters. These are the colors I see in each of the bases:
Full Spectrum (thumb) - lilac lavender that shifts to pink and gold
Prism (index) - periwinkle that shifts to pink and orange-gold
Liquid Crystal (middle) - sky blue that shifts to blue to purple to pink (most prominent color shift)
Optical Illusion (ring) - bright seafoam teal that shifts to purple
Ray-diant (pinky) - golden chartreuse green that shifts to green and teal
The next three pictures I took in my new tabletop studio light box with artificial lights.  I'd like to know your opinion on which pictures you like better.  I know I don't want to rely on the sun anymore (I like swatching at night!), but now it's a question of whether I should get a couple daylight lamps to use for my pictures.  What do you think?

Part of why I wanted to revert to artificial lighting is so that I can set up the lights in a position that will show the duochrome nature in some of my favorite polishes (including these).  I thought the next two pics showed the multiple colors a little better than my natural light pics.

So what do you think of my new photography setup?  Do you like how the pictures look overall?  Or how they catch the duochrome a little better?  Let me know what you think because I'm still deciding on some daylight lamps!
I haven't yet seen the China Glaze Prismatic Chroma Glitters yet in stores.  I was frantically searching for them and found my set on Phoenix Beauty Lounge.  They are based in Canada but shipping was reasonable and super fast!  When I ordered, one of them showed out of stock, but a few hours later they emailed me to say they did have it and asked if I'd like to add it to my order before it shipped out!  Seriously, GREAT customer service!  They are also available on Transdesign, and Wet n Wild has come out with a Coloricon set that are dupes to these.
