Definition of Underwear // Undies

  1. Polish worn under something else. Visible or not, depending on context. Undies can be the base colour you wear underneath a glitter topper. Underwear is also a polish worn beneath your “real” polish to help boost its opacity or colour. Water marbling is often done over white undies, which helps the colours show more vividly. Undies can also be an economical choice; rather than use 3-4 coats of a more expensive polish to get it to opacity, you can conserve it by using a coat or two of matching undies first.
