Elixir Tricky/Girly Bits Street Magic/Candy Juicy

Green is one of my favourite colours, especially shades of the olive or lime persuasion, but I rarely wear it on my nails.  I've had Elixir Tricky for months and months and I'm only getting to it now ~ silly me!  It's a gorgeous golden olive shimmer, the perfect backdrop for the subtle duochromic emerald/orange shift of Girly Bits Street Magic.  I decided to accent the mani with a layer of Candy Lacquer Juicy, a bright chartreuse/orange glitter bomb.  Again, why did I wait so long to use a polish?
I used one coat of Tricky (to cover a sage polish I was wearing), one coat of Street Magic and then one of Wicked Fast.
The day after I did this mani, my Butter London order came in and I decided to slap on a layer of Swinger.  The larger glitter in Swinger is emerald green while the base appears to be a murkier olive green, so it complemented both Tricky and Street Magic.  I love how the emerald glints at all angles!

 Isn't the shimmer gorgeous?  Definitely appropriate for fall!

I've been wearing this for two days now and it's going strong; it will officially be my Thanksgiving mani tomorrow!  Could I possibly become a green convert?
Do you like wearing a base and glitter with the same colours, just in different shades?
