China_Glaze_Happy_HoliGlaze_ There's_Snow_One_Like_You
China Glaze Texture There's Snow One Like You - a limited edition white texture with white matte glitter. I've seen swatches of this that make it look, well, frankly unwearable. I chose to use one coat layered over one coat of white. Yes, I like it. Actually, I really like it! It feels a bit rougher and chunkier than I like, rougher than the other textures I've tried so far. So, I wouldn't wear it for an extended time. But many of us polish nuts don't keep a manicure on for long anyway. So I'd for sure rock this for a day or a special event. And of course, it would make awesome snow for nail art!
