Hi everyone! Time for another Nail of the Day. I got this polish in a Birchbox Limited Edition box, I believe. Please keep in mind that this is the polish had been on my nails for 5 days.
So the first thing that I have to say, which you can see in the picture, is that this nail polish doesn’t hold up very well. After about 5 days of wear, it looks very worn. I tried to touch up the chips a little bit before taking this picture, but you can still tell that it isn’t perfect by any means.
The color is nice. It is a very professional color and would work in conservative workplaces. I like it but it is not my typical go-to color.
In terms of the original application, I really am not a fan. It took three coats to get to this opacity and this picture shows how even then it was streaky and not completely opaque. The formula is nice and builds on itself quite well. However, I don’t have time to be sitting around all day adding coats to my nails. Also, the finish is a weird satin-y finish. It isn’t shiny and it is certainly not matte. It is somewhere in between and that makes it look a bit unfinished.
Overall, I like the color of the polish, but the formula does not live up to my standards. It is too streaky, and the finish should be shinier.
What do you think?
I bought this myself. I’m not getting paid for this post. All opinions are my own.
