I thought I'd show you something else for a change. How about a white? I've never done a white mani before. But just plain white is boring in my opinion, so it needed some sparkles.
Do you also have trouble finding an opaque white nail polish? I did, so I decided to get OPI Alpine Snow Matte. At least it dries fast. The whites I tried before this needed way too long to dry and they also needed at least 3 coats to be opaque and were very runny. Well, Apline Snow Matte is not runny and dries fast. Needs 2 coats to be opaque, but you can see the brush strokes very clearly. So still not really a winner.
Since I planned some glitter on top, it was not a big deal.
I layered China Glaze Polar Ice on top, 2 coats. And applied some Seche Vite, because that's the best topcoat to make a gritty manicure smooth.
After this I waited for the sun to get decent pictures. And waited. And waited. And waited. Of course no sun. So eventhough the effect is pretty nice, you can hardly see in it the pictures unfortunately.
First picture in daylight, second is blurry in an attempt to show you the sparkles... and third in artificial light.
Polar Ice is a holographic glitter in a clear base. It's actually similar to Fairy Dust only with larger glitter.
I'll try this mani again when there's more sun. For now, sorry...
Have a great sunday!
