Stop me if you've heard this one...

I love sheer whites. I think I have said this probably 347 times on this blog. Here, here, here, here, here, here. So what's another post...


Essie - Marshmallow

I don't remember how many coats this was because this was from a while back. I would venture to say the standard 2-3 coats.


I do like to dress up my sheer whites on occasion. One of my favorite KleanColors is Cream Pearl. I have never worn it alone, but do like it over other colors. It has blue and purple sparkles.

I have shown it over a barbie pink in this post.









Very subtle and pretty.







I also have enjoyed NYX - Spotlight on top.

If you want to see NYX - Spotlight over a dark green check out this video... here. I put it over Nabi - Teal










I have a white cat. She gets jealous of my sheer white obsession.














She screwed up my mani last time I wore a sheer white.

  1. Bahahaha! Love kitteh's interference. Looks lovely on you. I've not done much of the sheer white thing because am always afraid it will turn out to be a gooey, streaky mess. But you're opening my eyes to the possibilities. My wallet's not happy about it though:p

  3. Love! I think the only proper sheer white I have is whatever the white one was from the OPI NYC ballet collection, and I do lurve it. Does Zoya Gaia count? I love that one. Also love Whitecap and SpaRitual Alchemy, but both of those are milky goldy flecky. *squints* I need more sheers.

  6. Love that your kitty joined in. They obviously thought their notd should be included.

    I love a good squishy white polish as well. Actually, I just like wearing white polish. It stands out so nicely. Your nails are perfection.

  7. All the sheer whites I've tried end up streaky..what's the secret to get your perfect result? Or is it just different from polish to polish??=)

  13. This post was perfectly timed, Anna! I've been oohing and ahhing over Essie Marshmallow and Essie Waltz the past few weeks. Your most has turned my admiring into a big, fat, craving!

  14. I like the look and marshmallows. I wonder what it would look like to paint marshmallow with marshmallows?

    Have you tried texturizing your nails w/ cat hair? It could become the next BIG thing!

  15. maybe i should give this essie a chance. i never wear sheer whites because all the ones i've tried, no matter how careful i am, i get streaks and unevenness. ha! can't tell you how many times my cats have screwed up my mani!

    btw, did you get the question i sent you?

  16. THIS is why I love you! We are equally obsessed with sheers, whites, nudes, etc. Honestly, if I could write my entire blog based off of only these shades forever, I'd do it. Hmmmm...maybe I should? ;-) LOVE this combination!

  17. LOL I love the last picture!
    Whites usually scare me but I love the glossiness of this Essie and the layerings you added to it!
    BTW my cat usually likes to test if my polish is dry...Chewing my finger tips!

  18. LOL! That pisture is too funny. The cat sabotaging the manni, that's hilarious. I'm sitting in my office cracking up right now.
