A simple swatch and brief review today. As promised, the CND Brilliant White that formed the basis of the "golf ball" accent nail in my golf manicure.
Previously, I'd been using OPI Alpine Snow as my go-to white. It was fine, pretty opaque, I love the OPI brush, blah blah. But I never loved the formula - it was streaky, yes, but that's normal for a white. But it just always looked chalky, and it applied in a vaguely unpleasant way. Overall, though, it was fine, especially as I generally just use it as a base or for art.
A couple weeks ago, though, I found this CND polish at my local Winners. I'd only used their Stickey base coat before, but I liked it fine, and the bottle was pretty and it was at Winners, thus discounted. And a back-up white never hurt anybody.
I got another CND polish - a gold chrome - at the same time, but I haven't had a chance to try it out yet. Based on this one, though, I'm looking forward to it!
