Wheels Z6 and A7: White and Light Grey Shimmers

Today's Nail Wheel Wednesday features two groups of pale shimmers ranging from white to light grey and light taupe. A handful of these have some hints of duochrome that makes me think I should try them layered over black sometime in the future.

1. Maybelline Wet Shine Shimmering Snow (3 coats)

3. Revlon Phantom Angel (3)
4. Sally Hansen Salon unlabelled mini (3)

6. Miyo Nailed It Pearl (3)
7. Sally Hansen Diamond Strength unlabelled mini (3)
8. Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Diamond Ring (3)
9. Borghese Cristallo Shimmer (3) [seeing this and #8 make me feel okay about not getting the white OPI baseball one this summer]
10. Beyond Opal (2) [bitof a gold sheen to this one]
11. Milani Just Browsing (2)
