Are you dizzy with excitement about nail polish?

I recently had a request for swatches of Clarins 230 over white. Great idea!! I actually tried this on a finger the other day and gosh, it came out a streaky mess, so I couldn't bear to take pictures of it. However, I decided to try again with a wheel, and added a few bonus ideas as well.

From left to right: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Lavender Cloud, Zoya Ginessa, Illamasqua Scorch, and Essie Pretty Edgy. They are all shown at two coats.

I've added a coat of Clarins 230 to each. These pictures are indoors, under my desk lamp.

I had a very hard time getting the Clarins to apply evenly, as you can see. Streaks. :(

The streaks are most apparent over Lavender Cloud and Scorch.

The orange sparklies over Pretty Edgy are so flippin' hot!

They are all super pretty. I just don't know if I could deal with the streakiness for a real manicure.

Perhaps if I thinned the 230 it would behave better over light colored polishes.

The shimmer in Ginessa hides nearly all the streaks, so that is good.

I love color, beauty, creativity, animals, and being care-free. I'm not care-free, in reality, but would like to think it's an attainable state of being! I do like to bend the rules when it serves a greater purpose and I'm all about being authentic. Here I am, take me or leave me! I suppose I'd call myself a sensitive soul. I think I feel things more deeply and ponder things more thoroughly than your average bear.
