Snowy White

OPI Funny Bunny, China Glaze Snow Globe 

Hi guys!  I didn't have too much time to work with when I did my nails this time since we have extended holiday hours at the salon right now.  I decided to do some layering and keep it simple.  I got OPI Funny Bunny a couple weeks ago, so I used that as my base color.  It is a soft white jelly, and I actually wanted Essie Marshmallow but couldn't find it, so I got this instead.  I haven't seen a comparison but it seems like they may be dupes.  I was originally going to do a jelly sandwich*.  I did 2 coats of Funny Bunny, one coat of a random iridescent glitter, another coat of FB, then 2 coats of China Glaze Snow Globe.  At this point I just couldn't bring myself to cover up the gorgeous sparkles of Snow Globe so I just stopped!  I'm a serious sucker for glitter!

I had a difficult time getting pictures of the different colors of glitter in Snow Globe.  I feel like this mani was sooo much prettier in real life!  Also, even though it was glittery, this mani was a nice palette cleanser after all my red and green and gold ones.  Hope you like it!

What are you favorite layering colors?

*This is where you do a base color, then glitter, then a thin layer of the jelly polish over the glitter, for anyone who may not have heard of a jelly sandwich.  The jelly polishes are sheer, so the glitter still shows, but it is muted and looks suspended in the base.
