My base color is Catrice Nautica (Cruise Couture Limited Edition), a slightly purple toned indigo polish with a nice sapphire blue shimmer. I used two medium coats for opacity.
On top of Nautica, I added one coat of KBShimmer Shipwreck. "Ships lost at sea, churning waters, mythical creatures, and lost treasures, inspired this polish. I started with a base of a deep blue green color. Then, added several sized of hex glitters in teals, blues, greens, and purple. I can almost see these colors being on a beautiful mermaid. A hint of gold, and a pop of copper sparkle like hidden treasure and add depth to this polish."
Application of Shipwreck was easy, I dabbed it on like I do with (almost) all glitter toppers, but there was no need for fishing for glitters. I added one coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails top sealer.
As I'm really into matte manis at the moment, I added one coat of Essence Soft Touch Topcoat for a satin matte finish.
KBShimmer polishes are sold on their website (US only) and at Harlow & Co.
