You don't need a dark base color to see the full impact of the standard 3D Cat Eye polishes, as they are opaque and shimmer-filled. The magnet is optional.

Since the Top Cat Eye polishes aren't as "opaque" as the 3D Cat Eyes, you can layer them for a unique color combination. They work well with a dark base color.
