NOTD: Where's My Blanket? by OPI, over Snowcone by Orly...

As my previous NOTD post featured one of the two OPI Peanuts Halloween 2014 matte glitter topper's, I thought that I might as well voice my opinion on the other one too.
Do you have a fail-safe polish that you continuously reach for when you're not sure what look to go for? You can learn a bit more about mine below...

Snowcone is one of my favourite polishes; when I'm not sure what to wear I pull this out, as it's such a flattering shade that looks good both dressed up and dressed down... and it's a one-coater.

 If you enjoy nail polish, then you need Snowcone - it is a drool-worthy shade, and it has an amazing formula. It is smooth to apply, leaving no bubbles or streaks. It is highly pigmented, so you really only need one coat (though I usually wear two coats just because it's become automatic to do so). I was also impressed with the drying time; within two minutes after application it was touch dry.

Where's My Blanket? is from the OPI Halloween 2014 collection, which was a bit different by OPI's usual standards as the four colours are available in full-sized bottles, as well as the familiar four-piece mini set... It has a base of black matte hex glitters in various sizes. There are matte hexes in pastel shades of orange and yellow scattered throughout the mix too.

The glitter applies fairly evenly and smoothly when you dab it on [rather than strokes], and the base is quick to dry. I love white glitter toppers because they go over almost any colour, so it's very versatile. This kind of glitter mix also is my favourite to use for jelly sandwiches. I was also really delighted to find that this topper adds about two days to the life of my manicure too.

The cheapest place to buy Snowcone is from TK Maxx - I found my bottle for £3.99. Or you can easily find it on an eBay store [prices start at £6 for an 18ml bottle].

The Peanuts Halloween collection comes and goes from UK sites all the time, so I bought my bottles of the glitters from this eBay store for £4.45 & £3.81 p+p each. 
Delivery took around one week from the US.
