Wacie Nail Company Release: Whitewash

Surprise! There’s a Wacie Nail Company release today! I wanted to do it sooner; a couple of weeks ago, I showed you a manicure featuring Whitewash, a white jelly polish, as part of a jelly sandwich. I wanted to release it then, but as I’d just cut my nails back, I wanted to wait until I had a little more growth. Whitewash is being released on the Wacie Nail Company etsy shop when this blog goes live. I’m wearing two coats of Whitewash with one coat of Seche Vite.





I’ve always loved the look of whitewash over wood; wood, especially when battered and weathered, has a wonderful amount of character. Whitewash emphasizes it; it covers yet highlights every splintery, grainy detail. I wanted to see if this applied to nails as well. I mixed a very small amount of white polish into clear lacquer base, and I got a result that was creamy and pleasantly sheer, just like a good whitewash. It covers the imperfections while highlighting what’s beautiful beneath.



Whitewash and other Wacie Nail Company polishes are for sale in the Wacie Nail Company etsy shop.



Also, just for fun, I’ve decided to give a bottle of Whitewash away to a lucky giveaway winner. Contest is open to US residents 18 years or older. No giveaway accounts, please. Entrants outside the US or under 18 years of age will be disqualified. Contest ends Saturday, August 8, at 11:59 PM. Winners will be notified on Sunday, August 9. Good luck, players!

Birthday Countdown Giveaway! — Now Closed

You may not know this, but my birthday is coming up. To celebrate, I’m holding my first-ever giveaway! One lucky winner will receive two brand new full-sized Ciaté paint pots: one in Candy Floss and one in Pillow Fight. The giveaway opens today and will run until next Friday, which is also my birthday. Here’s a closer look at the prizes:


Candy Floss is a sweet candy pink creme. I’m wearing it at three coats here.


Pillow Fight is a dusky, dreamy lilac creme. This is also shown at three coats.


Here’s the link to the giveaway! Good luck!

Extra stuff you should know: The prize bottles are brand new, unused, and have never been opened. The swatches were done with identical bottles from my own collection. The prizes are provided only by me and not by other sponsor, thus no benefits or money were received. I will ship to an international winner. Giveaway opens on Friday, October 3 at 12 AM EDT and runs until Friday, October 11 at 12 AM EDT.
