Nfu Oh's "GS01" (a Glitter Series polish) over Essie's "Turquoise & Caicos" (from the 2010 Resort Collection). GS01 is an almost pastel, multi-colored glitter. "Turquoise & Caicos" is a semi-sheer polish that can build [eventually] into an opaque finish.
Loved the color of "T&C" but its application was a pain in the butt! Runny and sheer. Bad combo. I tried thicker layers to get better coverage but the polish ended up flooding my cuticles and causing bubbles. I was able to mask them with the glitter though :)
I know I show you Nfu Oh "GS01" ALL THE TIME but I love it! The glitters are small and not in-your-face... so, so pretty! Have I convinced you that you need some Nfu Oh's yet? :) I've seemed to convince myself that I need another one!

Yes, I *need* some Nfu Oh. I have a few on my Christmas list (along with a link) - I'm crossing my fingers that somebody pays attention to my list. LOL One of my coworkers walked by as I was reading your post and she said "OOOH! Get THAT one!" :D
Sorry to hear your application of T&C was so bad, I actually didnt have any problems with it! Yes its sheer was very doable with 2/3 coats :) Love the color! And smart solution, glitters fixes every mani haha
I just got a heap of Nfu Oh including several opal collection (flakies) and a holographic and love them! Wish they were easier to get in Australia - I have to get someone to order them in and then send them to me :( AT least I have ease of access to Ozotic :)
I love what you did with this color. I passed on T&C since I have Nhu Foh 394, but now this has me re-thinking it....or maybe I should get GS01?? At first glance at the thumbnail pic, I thought, "Wow she matched her mani with her ring!", then I saw what it really was and I'm like, "Oh, nevermind." Very cool. HA!
This is really pretty! I think Turq and Caicos is the only nail polish I've worn in a long long time where strangers were complimenting me on my nail color. It's fricken gorgeous and that glitter just adds to the loveliness.
Oh thanks for the comparison shade. I had a look on eBay last night and my usual/favourite US seller had CG polar ice so I ordered that, today the same seller has snow globe! Hmm can I justify buying both!?
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them! Also, don't forget to check out my links above. There you'll find a section about me, my complete list of OPI (including photos!), and other important information. Enjoy :)
