White Glitter Layering

Hi all. So I've been meaning to do some type of layering mani but I never had the time (or patience) to do one until recently. I couldn't really decide on what I wanted to do but since I haven't worn any white colors lately I tried to use up some of my white polishes.


Whites I used: Sally Hansen White On, China Glaze 
White on White, Zoya Lucy, LA Colors Silver Glitter


Shade




Sun


So first I put on one thick layer of Sally Hansen White On. This color had a nice opaque finish which helped with concealing any visible nail line. Next, I used one thin layer of China Glaze White on White to fill in any gaps and to also give the white a "softer" appearance along with being a little bit more "milk/jelly" looking. I applied 2 coats of the silver glitter on top of that because it was somewhat sparse. Then, I put one good coat of Zoya Lucy on top of everything. To seal it all off, I put on one thin layer of a shiny top coat. It looked preeeettty thick when I first applied everything but once it dried it had a much better looking finish.  Overall, I'm happy with the results so hopefully my future layering experiments will turn out well, too! Hope you guys are having a wonderful weekend! =)

I know that Im going to sound...strange(?), odd, crazy- LOL but when I saw the pic I though about Sintatra song: "Let is snow".
I don't have patience to wait the layers to dry-LOL.

JeeZ TrendZ - Thank you! And thank you for the award too! Shoot, I need to make a blog post on my awards soon >_< lol...

Nadia - It doesn't sound strange/odd/crazy at all! Lol... I know the song you're referring to heheh. And yeah, the layers took a little longer to dry but I do have a polish accelerating dry spray so that helped a bit. =)
