he different types of nail polish finishes
– subtle (usually metallic) color mixed very evenly in base color (typical color balance has more pigment than shimmer, but there are also sheer shimmers )
– very fine metallic/sparkly particles mixed evenly throughout base color (this finish is often smooth to the touch)
– fine metallic/sparkly particles suspended in base color (this finish may feel a little rough to the touch, but not always)
– chunky and more visible glitter particles suspended in base color (this finish often feels rough to the touch)
– icy/frosty finish with a predominant metallic look (typical color balance has more frost than pigment)
– pearly finish – can be pearl/white, gold, silver or iridescent –
not as predominant a finish as a frost, sometimes light-reflecting
