I usually put on dark colors right after I chop my nails short, wear whatever about a week after, and finally polish them with light colors when they are longest (to the extent that I can tolerate anyway).
(Oh, I file in between.)
Wearing light colors in winter is not as easy.
Although they look lovely in the bottles, light nail polish colors often make my already dry hands look drier and blah.
A shimmer neutral white polish like Ice Ice Baby is a great alternative to the usual sheer lights.
Spa Ritual Ice Ice Baby
Ice Ice Baby is a white pearl shimmer, to simply put, that reminds me of fine Akoya pearls.
It has a slight yellow tinge to it but the color stays neutral regardless of lighting.
This dense yet fine shimmer makes enough contrast to my skin, for that I find this polish is quite wearable in winter.

This is my first Spa Ritual nail polish experience.
Spa Ritual is vegan and DBP-free brand.
I have yet to try more colors to determine the overall quality of the brand, but it is satisfactory so far.
This color is on the sheer side but applies evenly without making bubbles or brush strokes (which is a common problem in many pearly polishes).
About the color itself, I don't think it is really unique or stunning but I do like how the shimmer is just right.
It is bright and eye-catching but not over the top that it looks gaudy.
I guess it is just like the difference between real and faux pearls?
Thanks for looking.
How do you feel about wearing shimmery light colors in colder months?
Have you tried Spa Ritual polishes?
