The snow just keeps piling up here in Toronto, similarly I keep adding to my snowy mani ;) ... cheesy, I know lol
Today I have a mani refresh for China Glaze Frosty. I wanted something soft and subtle originally, a stamping over the white shimmery polish with a light pink maybe?
I ended up creating an accent on my ring fingers with fauxnad plate BM 11 and Sally Hansen Salon polish (older rectangular bottle) in Flamingo. This colour is awesome by the way, it really pops and is more pigmented than I would have thought. It's great for Konading. I topped that off with Flurry Up from Sephora by OPI, which I LOVE!
After a couple days of this I added 1 thin coat of Flurry Up to the rest of my nails for some subtle glitter, I may have added more coats for my ring fingers trying to get out as much hex glitter as I could. I find that the less you saturate the brush with polish, the more glitter you end up with on the nail.
The glitter looks almost grey/black on my nails but it is actually a shimmery silver like in the bottle. Also This photo was taken after 6 days of wear! I have almost no tip wear but I do have some slight cracking in the nail polish, not really visible because the polish is white. Does anyone else have this problem with China Glaze polishes? I find it happens every so often but only with china Glaze.
For those of you who don't know, Flurry up was apart of Sephora's limited edition line for the holidays, it is identical to Only Gold For Me, that was released as a part of the summer limited edition collection, only silver. Both polishes consist of mini and hex silver glitter suspended in a clear base. I actually forgot about the smaller glitter pieces when I put it on! It was all about the hex glitter for me I guess. The small glitter really does add something extra to the polish over all.

As you can see in the screen cap above, for some reason the swatch on the site makes both Flurry Up and Only Gold For Me look like the glitter is in a white base, but this is not true in the actual polish.
