Passport to Japan: Sonia Rykiel 003

Shibuya Crossing from above at night

Today's manicure is Sonia Rykiel 003.
I have since heard that it was a special edition released on May 1, 2010 - which happened to coincide with my arrival date in Japan, but I don't know if it is part of a limited edition collection or not. There were three in the collection, but this is the one that caught my eye. It was purchased from iSetan department store in Tokyo.
This polish is rainbow glitter with silver dominating the mix in a clear base. This polish has the same floral scent as the last Rykiel polish. The glitter is somewhat sparse and is probably better suited as a layering polish.
This mani is one coat Nubar Nu Nails, three coats polish, and one coat Nubar Diamont; with the exception of the ring finger which has two coats of Wet n Wild Wild Shine Black Creme and two coats of #003 polish.
These pictures were taken indoors in a light box with artificial light.
