Color Club Insta-This with Essence Make It Golden

In this month's Birchbox, I got a bottle of Color Club's Insta-This from their Custom Collection. I'd seen a preview of the polishes, and knew I was getting one, and wanted any of them except for the blue one... so of course I got the blue one. Isn't that how it always works with these subscription boxes?

Birchbox says that the Custom Collection colors were inspired by Fall 2012 collections. Honestly, I don't see how this blue is a fall color -- it's so nautical and summery to my eyes. *shrugs* Anyway, I decided to try it out just in case it really did turn out to be awesome. It's very bright and very blue -- totally not my style. So I put a layer of Essence Make It Golden on top, which made it slightly more wearable for me, but after 36 hours, I'd had enough and went for a different nail look.

But since I know there are blue-lovers out there, here is what I ended up with after putting the Essence glitter coat on it.

To achieve this look, I used the following:

1 coat CND Stickey base coat
2 coats Color Club Insta-This
1 coat Essence Make It Golden
1 coat China Glaze Fast Forward quick-dry top coat
