Candeo Colors Sprouse over L'Oreal Greyt Expectations

I painted my nails with L'Oreal Greyt Expectations on a Sunday, and the following Saturday, 6 days later, I added Candeo Sprouse.  Sprouse is similar to Lynnderella's Connect the Dots, but it has holographic microglitter instead of CtD's shimmer, and it has blue glitter that CtD does not have.  I really like Sprouse.  It was very easy to apply.  I had no problems with getting enough glitter on each brush stroke, and I had no trouble with glitter placement, and the glitter lay flat except for one bar glitter that I put on the most curved part of my nail.  I used cuticle nippers to clip the piece of bar glitter that was sticking out.  I believe I added a coat of Gelous and then a coat of Seche Vite.  The finish was smooth after that.  I like the paint splatter effect of top coats like this one; I think the paint splatter effect would have been even better with a little more white in the mix.  Because I wore the L'Oreal manicure for 6 days before taking these pictures, there is visible tip wear.

Here are some pictures taken in low sunlight on a mostly cloudy day:
