So I took off version 1 & started from scratch with a black base (using Maybelline Express Finish Onyx Rush) and I'm much happier with the results. This took 2 coats of the black, and then 3 coats of the Sinful Green Ocean, and the end result was pretty chunky, so I put 2 thick coats of Seche on to try & smooth it out and it's still not exactly level. But it certainly is BLING! =) Also, although there are hints of blue in the bottle, with the black background you get a lot more blue.
You can always tell how much I like a color when I put up an absurd amount of pictures, and there are quite a few here. The sun even showed for a moment while I was out so I got a pic. Enjoy:
