Educator Lorena Marquez shows how many different shades can be achieved by starting with one dark color base, and then applying other Entity color gels on top of it. The farthest right photo shows three coats of Little Black Bottle with no layering, then the other tips use that as a base while layering on one coat of the speciﬁed color. 1. Three coats of Little Black Bottle with no color layering. 2. Fashion French Pink. 3. Posh n Pink. 4. Ms. Fancy Pants. 5. Holo-glam It Up. 6. Under The Lights. 7. Denim Diva. 8. Posh Pixie. 9.
