Overall I am pleased with this polish. Glistening Snow is a very fine silver and holographic glitter, and was part of the China Glaze Holiday 2012 collection. This brand has come out several colors with the same fine holo glitter formula recently (Angel Wings and Champagne Kisses were the other two from this collection). The holo glitter is not quite as 'blingy' on the nail as it is in the bottle, but still in bright light it is visible. It was nicely opaque in 2 coats, and it lasted 3-4 days on my nails (which is about average for me). The fine glitter made removal much less of a chore than with other glitter polishes. I really dig this polish for around the holidays, as it does remind me somewhat of snow in the sunlight :) I would likely repurchase.

Very fine glitter, applies easily.
Doesn't need a base color but would work well with one.
Leaves a definite "sandpaper" texture on the nails.

This polish is part of the 2012 China Glaze holiday collection.
It is a very densely packed fine silver microglitter polish, with a rainbow of colors showing up in the glitter. I purchased it to use as a shimmery topcoat (thinking it was a denser version of Fairy Dust), but I found it too thickly packed with the fine glitter to use as a topcoat; it gets streaky too easily.
However, on it's own with two coats it's opaque, sparkly, and gorgeous. You could use a light grey or blue as a base underneath, but it isn't necessary.
