Zoya Frida / OPI Crown Me, Already

Zoya Frida / OPI Crown Me, Already is a sandwich combo I tried for the first time.  Frida is a very sheer jelly - I'd call it syrupy it is so sheer.  It basically adds a wash of color but will never build into an opaque polish.  Crown Me, Already is a silver glitter with both small square and larger hexagonal pieces of glitter.  It's pretty dense, and I've worn it by itself (with a few layers for full opacity).  For this look today I used 2 coats of Frida, one coat of Crown Me, and another layer of Frida to top it off.  The end result is a soft but sparkly seafoam teal green.  Frida is a little streaky by itself, so after 2 layers I was glad to add the Crown Me to cover some of that unevenness.  I used 1 layer of Frida over the Crown Me, just enough to give some color back and add that squishy jelly quality to it.  Since it is such a sheer jelly, Frida tends to not extend fully to the free edge and hence looks like tip wear, when in fact it's just thin polish.  I had this same problem with other syrupy polishes like Lippmann Rehab as well.  Overall I'm enjoying this combo, even though mid tone greens aren't usually my thing.  Hope you like it too - enjoy!     >^..^<
