this is going to be an extremely picture heavy post. these polishes have so much going on with each of them and i tried to capture them in different light, different flash, no flash, etc. the only thing i couldn't do was the florescent light in the kitchen. luck would have it that both lights burnt out when i turned on the switch this morning. here's hoping maintenance can switch them out soon enough today.
anyhow, here's a comparison between castle on a cloud and ice castle. both colors are 1 thin coat over cult nails - nevermore and a coat of seche on top.
though they look similar in certain light, they are completely different when side by side. please scroll through all of these pictures to see what i was able to capture.
pinky and ring fingers are castle on a cloud, middle and pointer fingers are ice castle.
