I haven't applied a top coat yet, since I am considering adding large, clear rhinestones.
The base color, "Free Spirit", has a slight shimmer. I applied three coats. The small bits of glitter in "Looks Like Rain" are definitely very spring/leaf green. I carefully spaced out the large silver glitter pieces.
I'm pretty excited to see what kids of new things I can learn with my new equipment!
Here's this swatch with a top cat. Shiny and smooth...and beautiful.
