Ocean Jewel's Backstage
My base color for this mani is Essence I'm Backstage (Beauty Beats Trend Edition), a pastel blue polish with mint undertones and a subtle shimmer. It looks a little too green in the bottle shot, the other pictures are more color accurate.
On top of I'm Backstage, I added one coat of Penélope Luz Ocean Jewel, a clear base with teal holographic hexes in four small sizes. Dabbing wasn't absolutely necessary, the glitters spread ok with wiping, but to really pack your nails with glitter, I'd recommend dabbing.
Ocean Jewel dried pretty smooth, I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top topcoat for a glossy finish.
Penélope Luz polishes are available at Color4Nails, at Norway Nails and at Mei Mei's Signatures, where I bought it.
