This mani is a copy of one I've seen ages ago (I think it was last summer or fall) on a blog, and I just can't remember where. As it is nothing special, just some simple layering, I hope the blogger won't be mad if I don't credit her (if you think it's your blogpost I copy, please comment, so I can still credit you).
As base color I used China Glaze Emerald Fitzgerald (Vintage Vixen Collection), a blackened base with lots of teal shimmer. Formula was good, a little on the sheer side, I used three thin coats for opacity.
On top of Emerald Fitzgerald I dabbed one coat of Candeo Colors Plumage. "Plumage has a sheer base and is loaded with silver shimmer, green, turquoise and dark blue hex glitter. A liberal amount of seafoam square glitter is also included."

Application was good, all glitters came out of the bottle willingly and lay flat on my nails. I added one coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer for a smooth finish.
Then I added one coat of Essence Soft Touch topcoat to mattify it.
Candeo Colors polishes, including Plumage, are available through their own website. A few selected colors are also available through Llarowe.
