Sheer white cremes, one of my favorite nail polish colors. It's like putting on my favorite pair of jeans.
Today, I am going to show you Essie Waltz. This and Demure Vixen were my first Essie purchases ever. My only other exposure to Essie was by way of an inherited color called Moda Scoota.
As sheers go, they can be built up to opaqueness if you can stand the dry time or own a quick dry topcoat. I personally like a little bit of visible nail line. Although, I am not a huge fan of quick dry topcoats (future post alert), you will see them in this post. I am going to include both swatches of 2 and 3 coats.
Color: 2 coats Essie Waltz
Yes it's sheer. And I like it that way.
Same as above only slightly more close up and with a random bottle of OPI.
One reason I love sheer white cremes is because it's like a french manicure in a bottle. Check it out, how awesome is that!
Now, you can go for another look by adding another layer. This is also a great way to refresh your manicure.
Color: 3 coats Essie Waltz
Top: Seche Vite
After a third coat this color is more opaque, but still has a VNL, which again is a-okay with me!
If you have the patience for dry time or own a quick dry top coat you can further layer with glitters or whatever you please.
Same as above, but at a different angle.
Same as above, but with flash.
So there you have it. I would love to comment on wear and such, but I have not worn this color enough to confidently come to a conclusion. My usual rule is to go through ~1 bottle to make a fair judgment, but that would be an eternity in the nail polish blog world. So how about 3 - 5 times. I will let you know how it goes in the future.
