Pink Wednesday: Zoya Snow White + OPI Movin' Out + China Glaze Crackles

It's wednesday! :D

A few weeks ago, I saw OPI Movin' Out on a blog, and I had to order. So I did. :) When I got it, I made myself wait until a Wednesday to show it to you!  Every swatch I've seen shows Movin' Out over black or purple, so I wanted to see what it looked like over white.

Now, this isn't a complete disaster.... I love the way it looks, but BOY was it a PITA to get there! This is..... TEN COATS OF POLISH. TEN. T-E-N. Base coat, 2 coats of Snow White, FIVE coats of Movin' Out, and 2 coats of Seche Vite. I used 2 coats of SV because one coat of it STILL didn't dry this mountain of polish after almost an hour! Of course, Movin' Out is very thin and sheer, so it's not cake-y, but still.

Behold!





 Over white, Movin' Out doesn't show the darker duo-chrome tones... and I certainly didn't capture all of the tones in these pictures. I can't wait to see this polish over some darker colors, but I thought white would be fun. It's got a pretty rose pink tone, and it flashes gold, green, and a bit of blurple. It's also got tiny flecks in it, which you can see in these pictures with the flash:



Yay!

I went to Sally with my sister today, and my buddy Kessler that works there was keeping an eye out for the China Glaze Crackles for me... They got them in today! Of course, I already have the pink and blue ones that I ordered online, but I got the purple one today! Yes, friends, as mad as I was about the crackles on my Facebook the other day, I decided to give it another shot. I'll have to say this time it went a lot better! Here's China Glaze Crushed Candy and Fault Line!



Hooray! I'm happy! :D

  4. This color keeps my attention so I know it needs to come live with my stash. I am wondering what it would look like over a pink base? Maybe would not take 10 coats them? Thanks for showing us this over something that was not dark. It's so beautiful in the bottle - wish there was a great way to translate that to the nail better.
