The Nail Files - On A Silver Platter

As you may (or may not) have seen here, I got some lovely polishes for Christmas. I've tried out two of the three, but had yet to try Essie's On A Silver Platter.

I was intending to do it over another color since it has a clear base, but hadn't decided which one yet. Yesterday morning, on a whim, I tried a layer on my thumb just to see what it looked like without a base color.


I ended up just going for it with out a base color!
 This is angled so you can see the gold micro-glitter coverage at certain angles/light.

 This gives a better idea of the clear base, but the holographic/iridescence of some of the other glitters in there. Even the blue flakes have a bit of a holographic shine to them in certain light.

I did two coats to try to "even out" the blue glitter. But I really didn't need to.

I think I have a navy blue that this will be AMAZE-BALLS over, so stay tuned for that test run!

And, as always, I'm linking up:

Head over and check out some of the other great manicures and show some love!  :)

Happy Friday!


  1. My aunt sent this to me as part of a get well package after surgery (how well my family knows me to send nail polish instead of flowers, ha) and I am IN LOVE! Such a gorgeous glitter!! I haven't worn it over a color yet but it would look amazing over a blue!!

  2. YES! Love this!! And I agree with you that it'll look incredible over a navy blue base! Oh how I love me a glittery blue nail…haha!
