>This is yet another franken I wasn’t actually going for. But it happened. LOL.
Actually I started with a bottle of very runny lime green polish, and tried to turn it to a turquoise by adding some very cheap sky blue jelly polish. Then I hated it in the bottle and put it away. Some time ago I found the bottle again, and realized it was this gorgeous dusty jade shade, close to Chanel Jade and OPI Damone Roberts 1968. It’s very sheer because it consists of all jellies, and this is 5 (five) coats.

And yes, those are my pyjamas.
And my nails get along really well with my jade earrings mom & dad got me recently from China:

The lighting is not reflecting the true color, the blue hint is almost non-existent, it’s a true jade. I wish I could give you a formula, but since I never intended to do this one… My frankens are trial-error most of the time. And finally, here is a comparison pic: (Photo: mariannaoust@flickr)
