OPI - My Dogsled is a Hybrid (Nordic Collection autumn 2014) and Elevation Polish - Plumeria (Heights of Hawaii Collection, January 2014)

When I bought OPI My Dogsled is a Hybrid, i had the impression it would be a mint. But it isn't it's a light jade or perhaps a minted jade (can one say such a thing?). It's a lovely intense colour, a happy and bright note for autumn: I like it!

And just because the combination looked so lovely I added a coat of Elevation Polish Plumeria, an all circle glitter topper with blue shimmer in it's transparent base.

My dogsled was very pigmented and needed only two coats (if you are lucky perhaps just one), it dried very quickly so it's self leveling capacities were not spectacular: work fast and don't fiddle.

Plumeria was very thick and it was hard to place the big glitters. So I did as Elevation Polish says on the website: "To achieve more glitter per nail, dunk brush in polish, swipe brush on the inside neck of the bottle, grab the circle glitters from the inside neck and apply directly to the nail." For the grabbing a used a sate pin.

I think the end result is lovely: the blue shimmer stands out just enough and the soft colours of the glitter compliment the green perfectly.
