OK COOL! So let's get into it here. I started off with two coats of Wet N Wild Black Creme, which is, you guessed it!, a black creme.
Then I added one layer of Pure Ice Heartbreaker, which gave the manicure this AMAZING emerald sparkly look. I kind of wanted to stop the manicure at this step and call it a day, but I had to keep pushing forward into unknown layering territory for you all!
So next I added one layer of Inglot 204, which is a true blue flakie. No hints of green or teal in this flakie, unlike my Nfu Oh 50 or Finger Paints Flecked or Motley.
It's getting interesting, right? The blue and green are pretty close in color so the lack of contrast is really intriguing to me.
Then I finished off the look with one layer of China Glaze Atlantis, which is holo glitter pieces in a turquoise jelly base. This was the final step, so if you want a full hand visual, please refer to the first photo in this post. ;)
Here's a close up of the layers!
And here is the look blurred so you can see the magnificence of Atlantis!
Then FINALLY Rebecca suggested that I should try mattifying the look. So I did, because I know that it is important to take great advice. :) I just picked up Hard Candy Matte-ly In Love because China Glaze Matte Magic always shrinks on me, so that is what I used here.
I hope you guys enjoy this combination! I had a lot of fun choosing my layering polishes, like some weird mad polish scientist. I usually am not a fan of so many things together but I think this look managed to stay pretty subtle.
