Mani: [Smooth Sailing] + [Ice Queen]

The Polish:   Essie "Smooth Sailing" from Summer 2011 Brazilliant Collection.

Number of coats:  Essie Ridge Filling base coat + 2 coats "Smooth Sailing" +  1 coat Sally Hansen Hard as Nails "Ice Queen" + Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip topcoat

Color Description from "A breezy lavender blue with a reflection of pearl."

My take on the polish: At first glance this looks like a creme finish medium-tone cornflower blue, but when you look closer, it has very fine silver micro-glitters in it. The formulation of this polish was good & I had no problems with the application.

Price:  ~$8.00

Amount: 0.5 fl. oz. / 15ml

Availability: Ulta stores,, Walgreens, & Rite Aid.
