KleanColor: Metallic White & Liebster Award!

Oh hi! *stretches* I have to admit, it's been kind of nice taking a break from this craziness. I do have a few pics taken from this past week so if I fall behind painting my nails: that's okay! lol I mean, I know it's okay anyway, but I don't want to fall out of habit here. I like it here. Much nicer here than under the house. Had a pipe freeze and burst that I had to fix. With my dad's help (he was my assistant lol) we got it all squared away. What was I talking about? Oh yeah...

Metallic White. I first saw this polish way back in September of 2012 when The Nail Buff swatched it. Now I have a bottle of my very own.

Three coats, applied a bit thick for me, but then it has been cold. I did want to do three coats because for a metallic, this is the sheerest of the set. I'm sitting here looking at it and I'm having a really hard time deciding if I like it as much in person or not...

*shrugs* Would make a great background for some winter-themed nail art.

Maybe I'm just bummed from having to put off my bps review until the foil glue gets here...

No time to dwell on that, though. I haz an award! Yep, the lovely Liebster.

Coming this time from Jenna of Polish Asphyxiation. Go on and show her some love. ^_^

  1. Whhaaa, lol we both swatched such similar polishes today, and we both needed three coats because they were too sheer. Strange... o_o

    1. Great minds! ^_^ I wonder if three coats would help Morgan Le Fay.... >_>

  2. What a great Polish.. I'm a sucker for whites.. idk why. I guess the crispness of it.. I now need this Lol..
    Great questions and answers too. :)

    1. Good luck finding it! I ordered the set of 12 metallic KleanColors off of amazon and it came with those. :)

  3. Pretty color. Would be even better if only needed 2 coats :)

    1. LOL Yeah, that would be nice. At least it did build up and wasn't perpetually sheer. >_>

  4. Very pretty polish, I agree would be a great backdrop for winter nail art! Thank you so much for nominating me :) Will get the questions answered ASAP.

    1. You're very welcome! ^_^ Can't wait to see what your answers are. ;)

  5. I am loving the look of this polish--so shiny and blingy but elegant, too.

    1. Definitely a sort of soft bling. lol Just wish it was a little easier to remove.

  6. Yay, thanks for nominating me. I will get right on this. I am not much into white polishes, but this one is gorgeous!!!! o_O 928 polishes??? Wow!! I am so anxious to try water marble, do you have a polish brand/color palate that would be good to start with?

    1. You're very welcome. Yes, actually. lol My two favorite brands to water marble with are Sinful Colors ($2) and China Glaze ($7). They both have a lot of colors that work well in the water. I rarely encounter frustrations with spreading or swirling with those two. Good luck! You know you're going to have to post a picture, right? ^_^

    2. Of course, I will...unless it looks like garbage...haha. I wonder if I can talk my daughter into letting me experiment on her first...hmm.

    3. Tell her she has to. You made her and she owes you. LOL!!!


I love hearing from you!
