Review: Sinful Colors Snow Me White

Image
Ah... It is the polish fanatic's Holy Grail. The perfect white polish. This isn't it. But, Sinful Colors Snow Me White isn't a bad lower priced white polish. Like most white polishes, it can be a bit... Rubbery, stringy and thick. But it is less so than a few other white polishes I have tried to use in the past. I needed three coats of this polish to get a smooth, even finish all over my nails. The first coat went on very nicely, if a little unevenly. The second coat was streaky. The third smoothed everything out very nicely. A coat of top coat finished it all off and added shine. All in all, not too shabby. Not perfect, by a long shot. But not too shabby. I don't use white polish often, mostly for occasional French manicures, so this polish will do me nicely for a while. Indoors, low light, without flash. You can see a tiny bit of streaking, but overall, I think that the finish is pretty good, for a white polish.  With flash. Wow! How bright! Like over bleache

Manicure of the Moment

Hi everyone! I hope that you are all staying cool, in the height of the Dog Days. Today I have a new to me manicure. OPI I'm India Mood For Love, three coats and one light coat of Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure. All topped with Seche. What a pretty combination this turned out to be. I normally wear HT over black, dark green or blue. But I have been seeing it in gals' blogs over lighter colours. Brilliant pinks, corals, golds and yellow. So I decided to try it, myself. Pink transforms a layering polish that can look very edgy and metallic over deep shades into something delicate, almost ethereal. Rather than copper, green and teal it is rose gold, gold, pink and purple/lavender. The metallic shimmer is less obvious but just as beautiful and eye catching. I can't stop looking at my nails. I took over ninety pictures. And I have decided to spam the hell out of the post with the twelve best ones. Even with all of these shots, I never quite captured this combination as it look
