Dandy Lyin' Around- China Glaze

I fell in love with this white glassfleck after seeing The Daily Varnish swatches here . The shimmer is just beautiful- I am so pale that light polishes look weird on me but the shimmer makes it so wearable.  My darling Kirsten (of The Geeky Owl- go follow her here) sent me a few polishes from the China Glaze Avant Garden Collection including this stunning white. I realized I hadn't done a full white mani ever and went ahead and rectified the situation. Here is three thin coats (could have used four) over Orly Ridgefiller and topped with Poshe. Sonoma Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for the accent. That glitter is a hot mess to apply though- takes alot of dunking to even get glitter on the brush. I think it was one of her earlier polishes before bases got a bit better. Worth the work though, last pic is glitter matted with Essie Matte About You. I hope to do a comparision with "the best white ever {per ALU}" China Glaze White Kwik Silvr soon.
