Accessorize - Aztec Wrapped Pressies

Today I have one of those rock minerals-glass-crystals-foily-duochrome type polishes, in the fashion of Orly Space Cadet and Hard Candy Beetle to show you. It's by Accessorize and it's called Aztec. I picked it up at the airport on my way back from holidays but hadn't yet had a chance to try it out.

This isn't a dupe for Orly or Hard Candy but it still portrays the multi-facet range of colours that we have come to like in these type of polishes. What colours can you see in this one? I mainly saw a sort of army green, plum sort of purple, gold, brown.

You already know about application of polishes like this - not majorly opaque unless you apply 3 coats to even out bald patches.
I don't really like taking pictures in direct sunlight because it can often alter the true colour of the polish but for this one I had to wait for a bit of sun to capture any sort of dimension to the polish! With no sun, they are a b*tch to capture. The duo chrome effect only showed if I angled my hand. 

I wasn't sure what to add to a colour like this, so I just added some tips, played around with some striping tape and added a metal butterfly embellishment. No top coat applied to these:
