Ulta - Chic Peek Polar Bears

Hopefully it is not too late in the season for a polar bear manicure. As soon as I saw the Coca-Cola cap featuring their signature polar bear, I knew it had to be a mani. How adorable is that polar bear peeking out on the cap? For the base I used a beautiful color named Chic Peek from Ulta and then "attempted" to stamp it with silver snowflakes. Most of the snowflake pattern did not transfer, so to cover up the bald spots/mess that I made, I painted the polar bears using white and black acrylic paint. I think they turned out pretty cute. What do you think?

Ulta's Chic Peek is one of those complex colors that I just can't figure out how to categorize. It is a dense micro glitter composed of silver and brown metallic particles. I hesitate to call it a foil as the glitter is not fine enough to be classified as such. Regardless of how you classify it, it is a gorgeous color even when worn alone. This is two coats plus a top coat. Application was great as I've come to expect from Ulta polishes...

How do you classify these polishes?
