naughty and nice whites

hi everyone! hope your weekend is going well :) mine is very rainy! i have two of the holiday China Glaze polishes to show you today, the white ones.

snow is the creamy opaque polish, a more marshmallow than plain stark white. this covered well for me in two coats which is impressive. it's flattering on it's own but most would probably use it as a base for art or other colors.
i decided to layer some other colors on top of snow to see how it turned out.  here are party hearty, mistletoe kisses, mrs. claus, and jingle bells (which i will show you a full swatch and review of each soon).  i used two coats of ph and one of each of the others over the white.
the other white color in the Tis the Season to be Naughty and Nice collection is called frosty.  very aptly named, this polish is the color of frost on windows.  take care to use thin coats to resist bubbling.  pictured is three thin coats.  it looks a bit streaky at two, but three evens it out.  this is a super pretty color and brought to mind one of my most cherished ChG's, white-kwik-silvr from the surf collection.
of course i had to do a comparison between the two.  they look pretty different in the bottle shot but turn out relatively similar on the nail.  kwik has more of a translucent color and the shimmer is more gold, and frosty is definitely more white and has more of a silver color in the shimmer.  i also needed one more coat of kwik to make it opaque than of frosty.
hope you like these and there are more from this collection coming up soon!  have a good one my darlins :D
