Hello again! I've got another treat for you today! If you've seen my recent nailsupplies.us haul, you know that one of my purchases was the amazing China Glaze Atlantis, a glitter that has been on my wishlist for some time now. Today I decided to layer it over yesterday's Essie School of Hard Rocks manicure.

Unfortunately, we had no sun today, so all the pictures are with artificial light.

Atlantis is an aqua/teal green glitter in a pretty sheer jelly base. The glitter is holographic, which makes for this polish to look like jewels on your nails. Maybe it's the fact that I've layered it over a green-based teal polish, but this looks more green in person that many of the swatches I've seen on the internet. I think I've captured it pretty accurately in my photos. If you wanna use it on its own, you will probably have to use about 4 coats to get it opaque. I personally think that would be a waste of this beauty.

Personally, I love love love this polish, but I wouldn't wear it to work/school. I think it's something you wear on a night out (hey it's Saturday night!) or on special occasions. What do you think?
