A Ghoul On Top Of The Ice Stream
I started with Essence Top Of The Ice Stream (Snow Jam Limited Edition). While this polish looks gorgeous with it's colorshifting fleck shimmer in a white base (teal over blue to purple), application was a pain. Pictures show four (!) coats, and as you can see, it's nowhere near opaque. Plus it takes it's time to dry, I dented my middle finger, as you can see. The next time I use this one, I'll layer it over a white creme.
On top of Top Of The Ice Stream I dabbed one coat of ILoveNailpolish So Ghoul. "The grey's in this nail polish are reminiscent of a lonely tombstone. Combine that with the perfect amount of yellow and black accents and what are you left with? Pure. Awesomeness."
There are also some black bars and purple microglitter next to the gunmetal, black and yellow hexes. Application was easy, I had no issues spreading the glitters. So Ghoul dries pretty smoothly, so I only added one coat of Sally Hanson Insta Dry for a smooth finish.
ILoveNailpolish are available on Etsy and at their own shop.
