Elevation Polish Haba Xueshan over OPI I Theodora You

It's been a while.  My only excuse is that life happened, so thanks to all of you who are still following!

I'm just going to jump right back in here.  A few months ago UKNailRunner posted a mani with Haba Xueshan over a nude polish and I fell in love.  Of course I had to try the combo out for myself.

I Theodora You comes from OPI's 2013 Spring Soft Shades Collection (inspired by Oz the Great and Powerful).  It's a slightly warm nude pink with a slight jelly finish.  It starts of sheer but builds nicely.  I love it!  I usually avoid nudes like this due to yellow nails, but it covered it up perfectly!  As for application, it was a little on the thick side and I was worried it would just end u a streaky mess, but it leveled itself out.

This is 3 coats of I Theodora You.

Haba Xueshan is a glitter topper by Elevation Polish.  A twist on the black and white glitter trend, it has some pastel blue glitter in it as well.  Application was nice; I have no complaints.  I did use both a coat of Revlon Top Coat and Seche Vite to make sure everything was smoothed out.

This is 1 coat of Haba Xueshan over 3 coats of I Theodora You.
