I paired Julep Eloise, a similar smoky navy creme (and another acquisition made because of Es), with that glitter, called Carol-- a gold, copper, cerulean, and black mix of different sized glitters in a clear base.
I used two coats of Eloise and three coats of Carol. Eloise is actually quite unique (check out my dusty blue comparison post HERE) and one of my favorite dark blues. The clear based Shimmer glitters are a little on the peek-a-boo side, but they're super saturated with glitter and make such a pretty accent. They're pretty well behaved, for glitters, though one single glitter (just one, lol) was raised more than the others, so I used two coats of topcoat for my accent nail.
In case you're interested in trying Julep, feel free to sign up for the subscription service using my referral link (HERE). If you decide to try it, make sure you read ALL the terms and conditions and carefully go through the faqs. They've made some changes to the service, like new Mavens have to "earn" skips, and at that, they max out at two per year, and that's one reason I'm not going to recommend the service. But, they do have some fun and innovative colors, and that, combined with the fact that I became a Maven before the cutoff date and so have been grandfathered in with no changes, keeps me holding on to my membership.
Carol is available on Shimmer Polish's etsy site HERE for considerably less hassle.
Thank you for reading and have a marvelous day!! ♥
