Iconic Effect Turtle Shell

This is another fantastic UK Indie polish, from Iconic Effect and it is beautiful. I feel a bit bad that I have had this for a while without swatching it but this was one I knew I'd love and I was kind of saving it for darker days. I swatched it over black a few days ago and was blown away!
Iconic Effect Turtle Shell is a mix of green squares, black, steely grey and green hexes, and lots of tiny glitter in a teal jelly base. It catches the light beautifully, picking up shades of blue at some angles and a hint of holographic too.
This polish could be layered up to show off  that beautiful teal and I will try that next time but I had in my mind I want to try it over Nails Inc Black Taxi. So, two elements are not apparent because I used it over black, you can't see the teal and you can't see the black glitter, but you can see both quite well on the 2nd bottle shot.
Despite losing the black glitters, there are so many other glitters in here that I think it still looks fantastic. I love glitters over black but I also love the fact that I can use this over green, blue, teal or on its own .
This is just so super sparkly, catches the light all the time and is very smooth after one coat of top coat. There is great distribution with one coat of the glitter, giving just the right amount of glitter on the nail for this mani.
