1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Orly Snowcone
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite
This lovely bright blue with periwinkle machinations came home with me during my last Sally Beauty haul. I'm pretty sure this was on an Ocean Blues mini display with some of the Limited Edition collections. Snowcone is part of their core collection, and it's a gorgeous shade!
Sadly, my photos aren't color accurate. I'm always vexed by what my camera is able to comprehend color-wise. It captured the bright blue in my pants exactly, but not this polish. I corrected the color on my bottle shot so you can get a little more of an idea of the color. Stashwise, I feel like it's a little less periwinkle than SinfulColors Lavender. Possibly a smidge lighter too.
For a pastel polish... Snowcone was insanely well pigmented. Definitely wasn't expecting that! Even though I was at opacity with two coats, I still did a third, because I'm me. I followed up with my typical top coat and Seche to seal it all together nicely.
Even though this is part of Orly's core collection, it still feels really fresh for Spring and Summer. I'd like to use it as a base for some nail art tonight, so we'll see how that works out. Possibly some stamping... I never really know. It might be a stare-at-the-polishes kind of night until I figure out what I wanna do!
P.S. I have Glow with the Flow from China Glaze on my toes and I'm seriously loving it. Color of the Summer potential, for sure!
