China Glaze: Atlantis
I have had this polish for a while and never swatched it! Not a good move, because it's gorgeous! This is China Glaze Atlantis, part of the Specialty Glitters from 2009 (?). It's like jelly aqua that leans towards the green side. It has major holographic glitter in it. I did 3 coats and it was not completely opaque. I think I'll layer something under it next time and just do 2 coats.
The glitter I think shows much better on the nail in person than on camera, even blurred. I have made some of my nail polish jewelry out of this. You can check it out HERE.
I also have Halloween glow in the dark pieces. Katie from The Nailaholic ordered some pieces and you can see them glow on her blog :)
I'm also doing something different with my Etsy store, I added a listing for a subscription for my polish jewelry. It's $30 for 3 months and you get a free shipping code you can use between your monthly piece. I have 4 spots left and currently it's open to the US and Canada.
Anyways, back to Atlantis... it's gorgeous! I topped it with Gelous and it did not eat it. You can enlarge the pictures to see the base color better. It really is like a bunch of diamonds on your nail in that green aqua jelly base. Stunning!
A reminder that my YouTube giveaway is still going on for all types of nail art items :)
