Bio Seaweed Gel in 101 Snow White and 281 Free Spirit – Swatches and Review

I did these nails back in January after we had a snowstorm as I was inspired by the snow. It’s currently melting away so I better post these while there is still a little bit of snow on the ground. I love the snow, in winter. Now that it’s Spring I want it gone. 🙂 Anywho, for this manicure I grabbed Bio Seaweed Gel in 101 Snow White and 281 Free Spirit. Let’s take a closer look.

All coats of gel polish were cured for 60 seconds. And I did not use a base coat nor a topcoat because you don’t need them with the UNITY polishes.

101 Snow White is your typical white nail polish. White nail polishes tend to be streaky and this one was the same. I applied three coats for full opacity. That being said, I have a tendency to apply 3-4 coats with Bio Seaweed Gel polishes because I go with thin coats so this was not any different from what I usually do.

281 Free Spirit is described as iridescent opal hexagon sparkle, sheer finish. It’s basically a clear base with mini iridescent hex glitters and a few medium-sized ones. The medium glitters were hard to get, I had to go fishing for them in the bottle. You can see one on my ring finger, and I also have one on my index, but it’s at an angle that it doesn’t really shine. My other hand didn’t have more than that either.

281 Free Spirit is not that dense with glitter. I swooshed the brush around a lot on all nails to get all the glitters that were stuck to the brush. I did not do that on my other hand and I had to use two coats to reach the same amount of glitters.

Adding 281 Free Spirit gave a very teeny tiny off-white tint to 101 Snow White. But you can’t tell when all the nails are done; it looks white. But if you were to only add 281 Free Spirit to one nail you would see the difference.

This next picture is a bit darker because it shows the glitters a little bit better.

I really enjoyed this manicure; it was the perfect pick-me-up that I needed at the time.
