The other day when I took Sophia to the pediatrician the nurse had these awesome white nails. I loved them and kept staring at them. So I bought the Essie Coconut Cove white nail polish. It’s a beautiful white that has a eggshell and creamy undertone to it. Ahhh gorgeous.
I have heard horror stories about applying white nail polish. Which definitely made me a little apprehensive about painting my nails. It was not something I wanted to do with my toddler running around or feel rushed. So, I figured I would bite the bullet and give white nails a whirl.
I started off with an at home manicure. Then at 11pm one night I painted them. The entire house was quiet and I prayed to god Sophia wouldn’t wake up in the middle of painting. My first initial reaction was “oh my god I am going to hate the way these turn out…they’re streaky, and uneven,” but I took my time and applied my first coat. Still not convinced, but waited 5 minutes before applying the second coat. By the time I was done applying my second coat I more happy about the results.
After 10 minutes of drying time I applied Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. Angels started singing… and I became one happy mama. Seiche Vite top coat is my ultimate top coat in the world. It gives you that gel like finish and amazing anti-chip protection. So I highly recommend using Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat to any at-home-manicures.
I was very please with how my nails turned out. I have am funny feeling that I am going to wear this nail color all summer…I’m obsessed. I want to gift this color to someone. So in the near future I may have to do a giveaway.
What is your favorite Essie summer nail color? Or do you have any tips for painting white nails?
