White: A Summer Trend My Faves for Summer

White is going to be big this Spring and Summer.  So, it got me to thinking which were my favorite whites.  Of course, I love OPI's My Boyfriend Scales Walls but there were some others that I've always liked.
The first one is Essie's Cabana Boy.  It is one of their older polishes but available on Amazon and eBay for below $8.00.  I really love the shimmer on this one plus a slight ting of grayish-lilac.





Covergirl also has a really nice white called Silver Lining 195.  The formula is great on these new covergirl polishes.  This white has more of a silver tint to it.   I kind of really like wearing white because it make my hands look really clean.


This is Pretty Serious Forbidden Fruit that has a mint green tint to it.  It is a great formula.  It is really thick.  I did put a few drops of thinner and two coats was all I needed.  This also has a sparkly feature to it which just makes it that much prettier.
There are three other great polishes you might have or maybe wanted to buy but did not know whether to buy them.  One is China Glaze Dandy Lyin' Around.  This one sparkles with gold sparkles.  The other one is Polish Polish called White Wedding.  And if you are a glitter girl the classic Stairway to Heaven is just perfect.  I do have swatches of white wedding and stairway to heaven on this blog if you want to see them.  I posted these three because these are the ones I reach for the most.
Ciao for now,

Cover Girl Outlast

This is one of the polishes of the giveaway and it really is a pretty color.  It is not a really a glitter but it appears to be very fine milled glitter.  It is a little holographic in that it shines purple and gold.  I followed the directions without base coat and no top coat.  I loved the formula but do admit I was so tempted to put a topcoat on just out of habit but had to see how long it would last.  For me, it stayed perfect looking about four days.   I could change my polish everyday so sometimes wear is not the most important thing to me.  I want polishes that dry fast the dry time is a little longer than the polishes I like.  If you are someone who wants long wear this is your polish.  I would not have a problems saying it lasts better than a Butter London but again it is your choice.  Me I love any polish that dries fast and although this one did not take the time I prefer it wasn't like I had to wait an extra five minutes it was only a minute longer.  So, will I buy more, of course,  I already bought a really pretty beige one because I think they will be great to take on vacation and I really like some of the colors.  They have some really great colors.  So, enter the giveaway and try your luck at winning this prize.

Ciao for now,
