Adding to my own self-induced excitement over this color, I decided to layer Misa's 'Confection Section' polish over it. Everytime I say 'Confection Section' it makes me want to starting singing 'Conjunction Juntion, What's Your Function'! Sorry, back to the topic...I'd never used this polish before and I'm glad I gave it a test run. This is a great polish to use as layering. There are so many different looks it can be used for, depending on your base color. In the sunlight the tiny glitter pieces are mostly blues, pinks and silvery-golds, but once applied, they just look like yummy little confectionaries in various colors. Oooh, pretty colors!
