NARS Écume Nail PolishThursday, June 16, 2011
White nail polish has been popping up as a big trend for this summer, but it is surprisingly difficult to do properly. Such light colors are hard for the nail polish companies to create with good pigmentation and smooth application. Add in the likelihood that you'll just look like you put white-out on your tips and yeah... things can go south quickly.
In person this is very slightly off white, and a tad richer looking. It's really just enough to make it not look like white out, but still be white. As well, this was 2 coats to opaque, rather than the typical 3 or 4 of most white shades. The brush can drag a little bit, so you might need a 3rd coat if you haven't applied carefully. This is my new go-to white for layering!
