Silver is not really a colour that I would choose to wear on my nails, my skin tone is not quite right but who can argue with A2Z.
I decided to use Whisper by Dark Metal Lacquer. This is a stunning holographic silver glitter - so when I say I don't wear silver - that excludes glitter :) Normally I would wear a glitter like this over another colour but the prompt says Silver so I am going for full-on silver.
Whisper will go to full coverage but I don't want to use too much of it - it's precious!! and I don't want any bare nails peeping through so I started with a base of Nails Inc Kate Spade Soho Silver. Again this is a polish I bought for nail art or stamping but it's useful as a base so the glitter has something to grab onto and might make taking the glitter off a little bit easier.
I used 3 coats of Whisper and I hope you can see it is so sparkly, the glitter picks up a rainbow of colours, I think it has covered all of the base coat too. Amazingly, it still seems to twinkle even in very low levels of light - it really is a very special polish! I have seen lots of pictures of this and because it's so sparkly I was expecting quite a coarse, top coat hungry, glitter but it is really smooth - just perfect!!
I am still not certain on the colour on it's own with my skin tone but with some frosty lilac woolly gloves I think I might just get away with it!!
I took loads of pictures - some sunshine, and some just daylight - they all looked too pretty not to include!!
