NOTD: Sweet Pea (franken)

I'm finding it interesting to see how a pigment can look one color dry and different in nail polish.  I used a a pale celery green pigment to create Sweet Pea, which translated to gold somehow.  To me, Sweet Pea is a term of endearment, and that's what popped in my mind after I mixed this. 

This is two coats topped with a coat of Gelous and Seche Vite Fast Dry.  Three coats may have dealt with the visible nail line, but I was too impatient for that.   I'm liking the iridescent shimmer and soft color!  I've had it on for 3 days now and still have no visible tip wear.  Considering I'm using the same base for all the frankens, I wonder if different pigments/glitters factor into wear time?  The experiment continues....
