What we say:
This year I have been obsessed with white nail polish – I think it is a great twist on the classic nail colours. My only concern with white nail polish is you generally need to apply 3 coats of colour to ensure no streaking and an even finish. I have a trustworthy white nail polish and I wasn’t expecting much from the small bottle.
Firstly, I love the small packing for Ice Box nail polishes, it makes for easy at home painting. The brush was relatively small, but ensured even and smooth application and allowed for accurate painting. I also noticed that there was no heavy fragrance associated with nail polishes – so far so good!
Once I painted one coat, I could tell that this was a winner! There were streaks after one application, but they were minimal and after 2 coats, the overall look was fantastic and no streaks were visible. The white can be a bit “bright”, so if you prefer a metallic finish then this might not be the colour for you. I personally do not enjoy glitter nail polishes, so this is definitely a winner for me! I am a firm believer in a good base and top coat, which prolongs the wear of nail varnish… The nail colour last two and half weeks on my toes and just over a week and a half on my fingernails. Great colour, good quality and long wearing – this little product is a winner!
