Today I want to show you another creme (If you haven't noticed, I'm on a creme hype lately), which I used as base for my french moon manicure the other day.
White Hype is a creme polish with a satin finish - or as it says on the bottle, soft touch finish. It means that it isn' glossy when dry, which you'll see in the pictures.

I'm not sure what to say about this polish - I'm trying to find a few good qualities, but I'm having a hard time doing that, to be honest. One thing I do like about though, is the chalky, satin finish.
White is not my colour, it brings out all my redness and yellow tint so I doubt it's a colour I'll ever be wearing on its own. While White Hype covered bald spots in two coats, the formula was horrible - absolutely horrible to work with - thick, clotty and streaky. While doing my nails, the brush picked up so much semi-dry polish in the end that I was worried I'd have to use acetone to clean it. And it was incredibly thick in a not good way.. I don't normally hate polishes with a thick tendency, but this was just too thick.
To sum it up, I am satisfied with the satin look and hope Essence will be doing a few more, just work on the consistency, please ;) I have never been this close to throw a hissyfit over something as small as a nail polish before, LOL!
