Shimmer Brooklyn

If possible, this is sparklier than the other two teal Shimmer glitters I've tried (Jasmine & Linna).  This is almost blinding, ok maybe that's a stretch, but it's seriously shiny.  As always, the quality of the glitters used in Shimmer Nail Polishes is excellent.  Brooklyn has very subtle gold tones, they can be spotted when layered over certain colors.  This has a little bit of a tint to it, so I wasn't able to layer it over lighter colors; I really wanted to see how it would look over white.  For the last manicure, it was really an attempt to cover up visible nail line (VNL) and it turned out better than I expected.  I was trying out my Fantasy Fire, and by the third coat I was thinking how many more coats is this going to take for the VNL to disappear?  I'm not one to do too many coats of the same color.  Brooklyn was sitting there, and I thought I'd give it a go.  Now, it's one of my favorite gradients.
