KOTD with Essence – Top Of The Ice-Stream (Snow Jam TE)

I stumbled across two new trend editions by Essence the other day. One being the Snow Jam and the other Vintage District Trend Edition. In the Snow Jam TE the white nail polish with an interesting blue shimmer caught my eyes and in the Vintage District the grey nail polish with a purple shimmer was the most interesting to me. So I bought both of them (and bought all nail polishes from the Vintage District TE for Gejba).

Let me present you “the white one” called Top Of The Ice-Stream. It is a milky sheer based nail polish with tiny blue glass flecked shimmer. I am not sure but I think that the shimmer is duochrome.

I’d like to warn you. Don’t be fooled by the beauty of this polish. This baby is sheer. My photo shows three coats and the last one being a pretty thick coat. It is a bit streaky to apply. I’ve had some issues with bubbling, but I have this problem with a lot of Essence polishes. Other than that I love it! It’s one of the prettiest milky white nail polishes that I own. And it dries very fast which is great!

Top Of The Ice-Stream really reminds me of snow which and that was my inspiration for today’s konadicure.
