China Glaze The Ten Man and Silvery Snowflakes

  Today I wanted to share with you a really gorgeous silver glitter polish, China Glaze The Ten Man from the Wizard of Ooh Ahz collection.

Outdoors, Shade, No Flash
  The Ten Man is a frosty light silver polish loaded with silver microglitter.  It has a very similar finish to GOOD WITCH?, another polish from the same collection that I reviewed earlier (on much longer nails!).  Here I used three thin coats for full coverage.  It is a bit on the sheer side, but these three thin coats really applied nicely and dried quickly for an overall very positive application!  The only downside is that the finish on this one is a bit bumpy without a topcoat (which I am not wearing in this particular photo), but one coat of a nice topcoat should smooth it out very nicely!  This is one really sparkles quite a lot in the sun.  It is a really great silver! 

Indoors, artificial lighting
  I recently used this polish to do my Mom's nails for a work party.  She was wearing a glittery silver sweater and dark gray pants and wanted something wintery to match - I knew this was the perfect polish!  I used three coats of The Ten Man, and follower by adding snowflakes and tiny stars from Konad plate m59.  Then, on each of her ring fingers I added a small rhinestone to the center of the top snowflake.  She really liked the manicure, and got several compliments on it at the party!  It matched her outfit perfectly.  It is a lot of fun to do my Mom's nails, since she has always been one of those people that never wear nail polish.  I plan to get this addiction rubbed off on everyone! :D
