I had such a difficult time choosing what polish to use today. I know, first world lacquerista problems. I spent part of yesterday going through polishes and picking out ones to sell, so I was more in a "what don't I like or need" mindset! But I finally decided to go with something new.
I recently bought China Glaze Moonlight. I got it really cheap on Amazon actually! I was looking for a good white jelly that wasn't too sheer, but would still show glitter through it for sandwiching. A fellow blogger over at Nails Beautiqued did a post featuring Moonlight, and I knew it was just the polish I was looking for!
I was debating on what glitter to use for it, since I'm such a glitter addict, but I went with KleanColor Starry Blue. I didn't mean for my final product to look so similar to the ones from Nails Beautiqued, but after applying a layer of Moonlight over Starry Blue, the glitter appeared much lighter and brighter!
I applied three thin coats of Moonlight, and then two coats of Starry Blue. I then topped it with one more coat of Moonlight to get the jelly sandwich effect, and then topped that with a coat of Seche Vite. Even with all of the layers, it still isn't too thick on my nails, which I like.
Starry Blue is in a clear base, but it has the slightest bluish tint to it. It shows a little on the white, and made Moonlight look slightly bluish too. I still love the full effect though - it almost reminds me of a robin's egg with the light blue and darker speckles.
In the end, I'm very happy with Moonlight! It is perfect for this type of jelly sandwich, and I will have to experiment with different colors and layering glitter in different places. KleanColor's Starry Blue was a little disappointing though, since I had to apply two coats just to get this much glitter on. The glitter is very pretty, but the layers of base add up with it when building it up!
