Lynnderella Snow Angel

Lynnderella Snow Angel

1 coat Snow Angel over 2 coats Orly Au Champagne,
+ 1 coat Glitter Tamer + 1 coat Seche Vite TC

When I first got Lynnderella Snow Angel,
I immediately thought of layering it over white polish.

Hence the base of Au Champagne here.
I think it was a mistake though.

Au Champagne was too stark a white for Snow Angel.
I didn't think it looked good.

In fact, it looked more like gooped-up, glitter-fied correction tape.

Which made me seriously upset and disappointed,
since online swatches of Snow Angel over white was exactly why I got Snow Angel in the first place.

So I tried it over something softer, and not so stark:

1 coat Snow Angel over yesterday's Addiction Misty Rain mani,
+ 1 coat Glitter Tamer + 1 coat Color Club QDTC

A hell lot better.

And the white glitters definitely showed up better this way.

Ok, now to try it over other colours.

Looks gorgeous on you and I totally agree - I hated it on stark white too. Then I tested it on Mayo (ManGlaze Matte White) which is not a stark white, and it made a big difference and so much better. Loved your post - I kept saying to myself YUP me too lol.

It definitely looks better over Misty Rain! I wonder how this polish looks topped on some soft pastels ^^

I haven't tried that yet, but I've been meaning to, along with a navy or teal ;)
Hope I can get that done soon!
