Arctic Sunrise and CU Blue are every bit as gorgeous as you think they are. That pink shimmer is delicate and pretty, and CU Blue has that delicate copper shimmer, but the jelly texture and depth is what really got me.
I used tape to mark off sections on my nails. On the long side of the nails, I covered the Arctic Sunrise with Cosmic Ocean. I should know by now that CO only really looks good over dark colors. It didn't add much to the light blue. You can kinda see a little shimmer, but that's it.
I used Girly Bits Into the Night over the tape lines. I love that glitter. It's one of the few times I've bought a mini Indie, and I really wish I had gotten the full-size.
CU Blue went in the corners of all the nails. In the pix below, you can see how Cosmic Ocean added an aqua shimmer to CU Blue on the right side of the nail, and barely see the same aqua shimmer on over the Arctic Sunrise on the other nails.
How would you have a blue-splosion on your nails?
