China Glaze Atlantis

This is China Glaze Atlantis, a beautiful teal-green jelly based polish packed with holo microglitter.  I wore two coats of Atlantis over a PVA base coat, then a coat of Essence Gel-Look Top Coat to tame the glitter and Cult Nails Wicked Fast to finish it all off.  It's still a bit gritty to the touch, but none of the glitter sticks up too much.

Application was okay, but as the jelly base dries, it can get a bit gloopy if you go over it too many times.  After two coats, there is still some visible nail line, but I didn't add a third coat because I thought that would overload the glitter for me (after some contemplation, three coats would be perfect because I had a couple of bald spots).  It would look great as two coats over a like colour if you wanted to cover the nail line; but from an arm's length, the nail line isn't really visible.

It's a gorgeous polish, especially in the sun when all the holo glitter sparkles!

Notes on wear time and removal: I wore this mani for one and a half days, and the PVA base did its job so removal was easy.

Base & top coat:Base - PVA glue
Top - Essence Gel Look Top Coat + Cult Nails Wicked Fast
Polish used:China Glaze Atlantis - two coats

    1. Oooh, congrats! I hope it's sunny where you are so you get lots of sparkle from the holo glitter!
