China Glaze Mahogany Magic + Candeo Colors Oceania

So I thought I would try something different when I set out to swatch Candeo Colors' Oceania. I saw the swatches Candeo Color's had listed on their site over black and purple and thought I would give China Glaze's Mahogany Magic a go. ;)

China Glaze Mahogany Magic is medium brown creme. I think it leads more towards a chocolate colors than uh, anything else haha ;)
All fingers, except my ring finer, are 2 coats of Mahogany Magic over Seche Rebuild and with no top coat. 
This is the only brown polish I own because I've honestly never found one I have loved. I keep it around just in case I ever want to do something like this and try a weird combo out. ;)
Candeo Colors Oceania is described as a clear base with medium white, matte teal and matte lavender hexes and an added dash of small matte aqua hexes.
All fingers, except my finger, are 2 coats of Oceania over Mahogany Magic and a top coat of Seche Vite. My ring finger is 3 coats of Oceania over Seche Rebuild and under Seche Vite.
I don't completely hate this but I don't think it's something I would try again.I do love Oceania simply by itself though. I put China Glaze's Mahogany Magic on my non-swatching hand (aka the non cared for one) and then topped it with Elevation Polish Stay Behind Catch A Wave and it is amazing! I don't have pictures because like I said my right hand isn't as cared for as my left. :P But I will post that combo in the future! 

China Glaze Mahogany Magic is from their Hunger Games collection and maybe still found at Ulta & Sally's. Most people are finding it at Sally's in their clearance section.You can like China Glaze on Facebook here.
