If you know me, I’m a sucker for glitter in milky white base type of polishes. When I received Nail Sauce’s Valentina collection to review, I instantly knew I would fall heads over heels for Cloud 9.
As you can see, it is in a milky white base with these yummy pastel glitter bits in various shapes and sizes. Cloud 9 is part of Nail Sauce’s Valentina collection. Application was awesome. Usually with these type of milky white bases, the biggest concern would be these annoying streak polish lines where white doesn’t look even in certain areas on the nail. I am so pleased that Cloud 9 did NOT have this problem! Opacity was achieved by the third coat. However, I decided to do four very thin coats of Cloud 9 to maximize the brightness of this color. I did not use any “undies” with this Cloud 9 manicure. Here’s another picture showing the bottle better.
See all those little pretty pastel glitter bits? That’s what made me fall heads over heels in love with Cloud 9. Again, with these type of indie polishes, it is always for the best to do thin coats instead of thick ones. You want to benefit from layering glitters and this is done easily with thin coats. Paint it on thick and you won’t get this heavenly look. Having Cloud 9 on my nails brings me such joy. This isn’t just only good for Valentine’s but this is also perfect for upcoming spring. The pastel color combination makes it very soft and subtle and the milky white color does make it stand out. Here’s a close-up!
Would I recommend it? Yes, I would. I give this 4 out of 5 stars. Application was ideal. You could use any white polish underneath to reduce the number of coats needed to make this polish opaque. It took me three coats to opacity. However in these pictures, they are all four coats. I did that because I wanted that extra layer of glitter. I do wish there was a little more glitter in Cloud 9. The finish of this polish was of a high-quality smooth glossy kind. All in all, I am very satisifed with Cloud 9.
