Red, white and green for today's mani (I start humming every time I look at these pictures: Fratelli... d'Italia...L'Italia... s'è desta...)
My base color today is Cult Nails Coveted (Behind the Curtains Collection), "a jelly, deep green with metallic green flakes and subtle green shimmer."

The pictures show three coats of Coveted without topcoat. The surface is a little rough, due to the flakies. If you want to wear it alone, you should probably use two layers of topcoat.
On top of Coveted, I added one dabbed coat of KBShimmer Candy Cane Crush. Candy Cane Crush is "SCENTED!! I know, with all the fragrances I have on hand, I should have done this sooner. This top coat is loaded with red and white hex glitters in many different sizes. This polish is scented with vanilla peppermint, for a classic sweet mint scent. Softly scented, this polish will not replace your perfume, but even when dry will leave a subtle scent. "
As I mentioned here, I'm not too fond of scented polishes. But as I was wearing this one only for one day, it didn't annoy me too much. And I think I've read on Facebook that there's going to be an unscented version of Candy Cane Crush for those of you who prefer it that way.
I didn't have any issues applying Candy Cane Crush, I had a good amount of glitter on every nail without fishing for it.
I finished with one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Gliter Food and one coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer.
