Today I have a blue indie-combo to show you.
I started with three coats of Girly Bits Stormy Skies, a light blueish grey. Or is it a greyish blue? Or even a light muted teal? Whatever you want to call this color, it has a pretty strong shimmer, that was almost impossible to capture on the nails. It's more visible in the bottle shots.
Stormy Skies, once dried, has a gritty, almost sand like texture. You can see it pretty good on my pictures.
On top of Stormy Skies, I added one dabbed coat of Candeo Colors Snowbird (Winter 2012 Collection), "a mixture of matte blue hex in various sizes with small holographic lime and small and medium gold holo hex in a clear base."

There are two versions of blue hex glitter in this one, small and medium "normal" blue hexes and larger matte hexes.
I finished with one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and one coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer.
