Winter Wonderland?

Zoya Aspen

I was trying to decide what I wanted to do with my nails. I wanted something light and pretty. I have been playing around with a few white nail polishes because I just ordered a bottle (or two but hey who is counting!) of neon polish(s) that I'm pretty sure had my name on it and most neons are the brightest on top of a while base coat. I felt this was a good day to test some of my untried whites. I did not get far. Aspen was the first one I tried. It was released as part of the Matte Velvet Collection 2015 from Zoya. I had every intention of playing with the collection but matte polish usually does not captivate me as much as glitter and gloss do. The formula was a little bit on the thick side but a little bit of patience went a long way and three thin coats was all it took. I was pretty happy with the shade and the finish as well because it has a delicate shimmer too it like fresh snow. However we are not far enough away from winter to be dreaming of snow, though I did scold myself for not pulling this gem out a few months ago. I hated the thought of taking it off. The solution to my little dilemma was sitting right beside my keyboard.

China Glaze Moonlight The Night

I had picked up a few bottles of China Glaze from the House of Color collection that was released just this spring. I had not played with any of them yet but was planning on it in the very near future. In the bottle Moonlight the Night looks dark so I certainly did not expect the gorgeous glitter that came out of this unassuming little bottle. Transparent blue and purple and iridescent glitter all in a clear base. I can layer this on so many different colors! You are looking at one coat over Aspen and as you can see the glitter load is very rewarding. I put a layer of top coat on and took a took a picture. Love it!

I love that the shimmer from Aspen lights it up from below and Moonlight the Night adds amazing color. I just had to get a macro shot to show you. Anyone else get a craving for those candy coated chocolate mini eggs?
