China Glaze Avalanche
I must admit that I am a silver, grey and purple addict when it comes to nail polish. I have so many shades of gunmetal grey it's shameful. I used to have tons of silver but I gave them all away in a fit of "not being good enough" one day. I am slowly building my purple collection but 5 polishes does not a collection make. So when I saw China Glaze nail polish from last year's Ski Winter collection I was immediately drawn to it. It was silver and grey and purple all at the same time. What a wonderful icy cold shade for my tips this winter.
No there are some that detest metallic/frost finishes. They claim that the finish is streaky and shows brush marks. I say, that's not the case with this polish. China Glaze Avalanche is smooth, easy to apply and after two coats it is opaque. The brush marks, if any, are so slight I hardly notice them...and to be honest, since I know most of you are not nailpolishophiles you may not care about brush strokes in the first place.
Do you need this? Well I think the formula for China Glaze is the best and I love frost/metallic so I say yes...but those with warmer skin tones my not find this as flattering on them. Oh and it makes a great pedi color too!
