Nails of the Day: Pink and White (Plus Revlon Powder Puff review)

Last week at CVS I spotted a Revlon matte suede nail polish called Powder Puff that looked really interesting. It is a white base with a subtle blue duochrome glitter in it. With the glitter and the finish, I thought it would be a really unique polish. However, the blue duochrome isn't visible at all and it takes 3 or 4 coats before it gets to a decent level of color, but even then I could still kind of see the line of the white part of the nail through the polish. Basically it's just a matte white that takes a lot of layers to be opaque. I'm so disappointed! If I can find the receipt I may end up returning it.

Since I really didn't like the look but didn't want to remove all the layers of polish I just put on, I instead topped it off with a coat of China Glaze crackle polish in Broken Hearted. I've used it before, but never realized how bright it could be until I put it over a white! While it's fun to combine crackle polishes with interesting colors underneath, sometimes it's fun to let the crackle shine!
