It sometimes takes me a few goes to find the right complement to a polish. I'll try a few different combinations and it just won't be quiiiiiiite right. I've had Nailventurous (now Ninja Polished owned) Humblebee sitting on my desk for a few weeks now and I've tried a bright background, a black background and a few others and nothing would both go with the glitter and not swamp the black. The other night I thought I'd give it a shot with a similar lime green - Revlon Zealous - and I FINALLY feel happy with the combination :D
To start, I added two coats of Revlon Zealous, a yellowy lime green polish with a gold shimmer. It's a super pretty polish on it's own but you'd probably need three coats as it's a tiny bit sheer. Next, on with two coats of Humblebee. Omg I love this polish so much. It's a mixture of yellow-lime-green matte and black glitter. I mean, come on, that's amazing. The glitter is ever-so-slightly more yellow than Zealous and together they enhance each other, being very interesting to look at.
The Verdict: Hur hur Maru is wet. None of my friends are online so I'm telling you, dammit. Also, yay radioactive robin egg nails!
