Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is a subdued palette cleanser with glitter and sparkle!
I started with Anna Gorelova 13 Snow Maiden. This nail polish is from her 2nd collection with Dance Legend and it came out Winter 2014. This collection came with the adjustable ring painted with the polish for no additional money. That was a real surprise when I opened the box and such a nice gesture! This is meant to look like glistening snow, and it really does!
It’s a silvery white base with iridescent glass flecks and silver and holo glitter. I think if you layered this over white, it could look very similar to a white Wow Prism! I did not layer it, and it is very sheer! I used 4 coats for my manicure and you can still see very visible nail lines! The holo really sparkles in the sun, but even indoors you get a white/silver sparkle happening. This had an excellent formula, I will just make a note to layer it next time. Although I do like the soft look this gives all on it’s own too! I really love it!
Then for an accent I used Naild’ It (that is how they spelled it) Summer Lovin Melon. I’ve had this nail polish since 2012. I don’t think the company is even making polish anymore. I couldn’t find any info with a Google search. Anyway, this is a clear base with pink, red, green, white and black glitter including some thin white bar glitter. I will usually purge all polish with bar glitter, but this one is very sparse. I didn’t get a single one out on my one accent nail. So this polish has been granted a stay of execution, for the time being at least! 🙂
This glitter mix is meant to look like watermelon, but I just see Christmas . Maybe it’s my choice of base color. The accent nail is just one coat. The glitter came out very easily and distributed perfectly. No fishing or dabbing required. I really like it a lot!
