Rainbow over Atlantis
My base color is Barielle End Of The Rainbow, a turquois/teal shimmer. While the color of this polish is very nice, the formula isn't. The picture doesn't really show it, but it was still half translucent after 4 (!) coats. So it's probably best used for layering, if you wanted to wear it alone, it would take like 6 coats...
To hide the still visible nail line, I dabbed China Glaze Atlantis in a slightly gradient-y way on my fingertips. Atlantis has a sheer teal base and is filled with small silver and holographic glitters.
I added one coat of Esence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer for a smooth finish. And yes, the blog post title is false, as I applied Atlantis over End Of The Rainbow, and not the other way round ;-)
