Sonoma Here Lies Robert, an unusual pairing of green and black glitters

After swatching Sea Lore I was thinking, maybe these glitters serve as good undercoat for other glitters, since they are all two-coaters.  So I gave it a try pairing Adella with Here Lies Robert and it worked out great.  Here Lies Robert was from the Halloween Collection, and I can see why, it does have a spooky/swampy look to it.  I was surprised at how many bar glitter I picked up on just one dip of the brush.  I love the formula of all of the Sonomas I own, they are all easy to apply and packed with glitter.  That being said, this has quite a few black rhombus-shaped (diamond) glitters that are pointy and land on the nail a bit awkwardly.  The best technique is just pushing them around and patting them with the brush.  I am still getting used to wearing green on my nails, and still experimenting with layering combinations fot this upcoming December Holidays.
