Athens...revisited...part 2

After swatching/wearing several blues/greens/blue greens one right after the other, I was tired of wearing that color family so I decided to play around with it as a base to glitter polishes. While I still had Athens on (and after my stamping adventure), I pulled out my Wet 'n Wild Be Jeweled polishes.  I ended up putting one shade on each finger, but because the Athens has such a strong color, the polishes didn't work out the way I wanted them to (the blues and green looked really similar and the pink and purple looked really similar).  I did, however, like the way 1 of them turned out.  

2 coats of Athens
1 coat top coat
1 stamped image in white
1 coat top coat
1 coat of Wet 'n Wild Bow in My Presence (I think...)

I liked how the stamp showed through the glitters and sparkles.

And just for the heck of it, here's all my fingers:
I think I got the polish names in the right order.  The Be Jeweled collection is basically different glitters that have some duochrome & holographic tendencies in a clear base.  They would probably look better on either  a basic color, or over a more similar base color - maybe pastels.  I will definitely have to think of combinations to make these look their best, because this ain't it.  

I purchased my Be Jeweled collection from Rite Aid.
