What's in a finish? - Creme

      I don't know about you, but when I first started my obsession with nail polish I had no idea how many finishes there are or what the difference between them. A few finishes are pretty self-explanatory while others seem to be variations of a different finish. I've decided to put together a series of post explaining the different characteristics of each finish. Partly for myself, so I can remember, and partly for anyone else who has a hard time remembering the difference between a scattered holo and a linear one.

     Let's start with the most popular finish  Creme. Almost every nail polish company out there has a core line of creme finish polishes. I say almost because some indie polish makers might not offer this finish.

     A creme finish polish is a pure color polish, meaning there are no additives for shimmer or sparkle. Known for its great shine and smooth finish, creme polishes can be sheer or opaque.

     I would have to say that most of my polish collection consists of creme finishes because they’re truly wearable for any occasion. In addition, versatility is a big plus as this finish offers the most color options to choose from – perfect if you’re like me and change your polish a lot!

     Thanks for stopping by and checking out my first installment of this series. I hope you stick around and check out the future ones as well. Next time I'll be talking about Matte polishes. In the meantime I'd love to hear your thought on creme finish polish. Do they make up most of your collection too?
