Shake it, Tess!
My base color is a England Tess D'Urbervilles (Gothic Beauties Collection), a blackened base with intense emerald shimmer. I think Tess has the most prominent shimmer of all the Gothic Beauties polishes, the others like to hide it and look plain black if the light isn't just perfect, but with Tess the shimmer is visible all the time. I used two coats for a even coverage.
Then I added one coat of Catrice Shake it, Flake it! (Million Styles Limited Edition), a clear base filled with flakes shifting from red over orange and yellow to green (plus one coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer).
Of course I had to mattefy it, so I added one coat of Essence Soft Touch topcoat.
a England polishes are available at various places, you'll find a complete list of retailers here.
