Distant Memory of Gooseberry Square

Did I mention that I love teal? I also love glitter. I also overuse the word 'love'. For this mani, I used Seche Base coat, Spoiled Distant Memory, Daring Digits Gooseberry Square, and topped it with Gelous to even out the texture.

Spoiled is a very inexpensive line of nail polishes made by the same company as Wet 'n' Wild. I buy mine at CVS for $1.99. The shade Distant Memory is an awesome teal with very subtle shimmer. You would think from looking at it in the bottle that it would be glossy. When the polish dried, though, it had a rubber/vinyl finish. It dries very quickly. The first coat was patchy. Two thick coats would probably work; I did three thin coats.
I wanted to add some pizazz and also use some of my 'Untrieds', so I dabbed on Gooseberry Square by Daring Digits. I did somewhat of a gradient, so that it would have the effect of the glitter sprinkling up or down, depending on which way my nails are facing. I love the tiny little square green glitter mixed with the tiny little hexagon white glitter that looks like snow. I have a handful of polishes from this indie polish maker. Daring Digits has several of their polishes on sale right now for $5.00: (I recommend the glitter Copperline if she still has it in stock.)
