China Glaze Elephant Walk and glitter

I recently got Elephant walk and in the bottle, it looked like a muted cool gray with a very subtle shimmer. I thought I could spice it up with some glitter, but that seemed to have turned out badly for me. Other than the poor layering combination, I liked this polish. It applied thickly, but not chunky and flowed very well. It didn't level as nicely as I would have liked, but it dried quick and has great coverage. I'm wearing 2 coats, usually I have to apply 3. The formula is not prone to bald spots on longer nails, so that's a pleasant surprise. Only complaint against the polish itself is that it's a little too green for my skin tone. I expected it to be a little more blue, but the greenness makes it less desirable to me. Other than that, it's really fun to apply and wear.

    Have you tried it with any of the glitters from the same collex? The shades I own looks gorgeous with I'm not Lion

    1. Thanks! I tried I Herd That on my toes and it's super pretty! A bit of a topcoat eater though
