Nicole by OPI Kardashing through the Snow is the 2nd of 3 Kardashian Kolor Holiday polishes I have to share with you.
When I first laid eyes on it, I knew that it would be fun to use for layering. (However, in case you actually want to wear it solo, I’ve included some photos of it at 1, 2, and 3 coats to give you a better idea.)
This is a fun glitter polish that puts some pizzazz in any manicure. So it’s perfect if you have an old manicure that you want to refresh after a few days.

Nicole by OPI Kardashing through the Snow Review
There are so many great festive colours in Kardashing through the Snow: red, green, blue, gold, and silver. But it’s not the kind of glitter that’s only good for the holidays. You could wear this any time of year when you need a little extra bling.
This is a glitter nail polish, and there’s noticeable texture. When you wear this, expect to take a while scrubbing it off. For this reason, I think you should use it as a layering polish to cut down on removal time. (If you use it solo, it’s going to grip onto your nails like crazy, and you’ll probably end up spending 30 minutes just trying to get rid of it.)
Edit: With a single layer of top coat, I found that it smoothed out the texture of the glitter very well.
Application & Formula
Applying this was so easy because it went on easily, and it wasn’t difficult to get the glitter to go on evenly.
Of course I had to show you some layering ideas so you can see how it looks over different base colours.
And…if you want to see what it looks like on its own, here are 1, 2, and 3 coats (left-right) over white nails. (As you can see, if you’re going to wear it solo, you’ll actually need 4 or more coats, and *shiver* imagine how hard that’s going to be to remove!)
Final Verdict: 8/10
Because the glitter is suspended in clear polish, you can layer this glitter polish over any colour without having to worry that you’ll transform the base colour.
What would you layer Kardashing through the Snow over? What’s your favourite way to wear glitter nail polish – all over the nail, part of the nail, or only on an accent nail?
