China Glaze’s Frosty

I knew when I got this - thanks to several other blogs - that the polish would be sheer. I actually kind of like the effect I get with two coats: a little more opaque than a French manicure, but not by much; the pearl/glitter finish; the bright white base color (even if it's sheerish).

Frosty can be worn by itself - though you need three or even four coats to make it opaque - but it works best as a layering polish. It contains microglitter (like the Vintage Vixen polishes) rather than full glitter pieces, like Mistletoe Kisses or Mrs. Claus. This means that it's a tiny bit easier to remove :D Because of its semisheer color base, this doesn't work quite as well for nail art or nail stamping as most other China Glaze polishes.

I think I might try a gradient nail look with a dark polish, an opaque white (for the tips), and this.
