Whilst this polish may not be news at all to most of you reading this, I have only just bought some. I saw it reviewed on another blog a while ago and then I also found it on The Nailphile and I had to have it! It was actually a purchase quite heavily influenced by my husband, as I’d obsessed over China Glaze OMG and had a bottle shipped from the US and promptly almost peed myself with excitement when it arrived…….and he just didn’t get it! But he did one day see a bottle of Sally Hansen’s Diamond Strength nail hardener and comment that if I could find a polish like that, he’d love it. So I did!! And he does!
This didn’t go on too well for me, I’ve found with this and the last few manicures I’ve done I’ve got little tiny bubbles appearing in the polish (which I have read about on other blogs and gloated silently to myself, thinking “That doesn’t EVER happen to me!” – Karma bites.) I don’t know if it is maybe to do with the heat increase around here? I sat out in the backyard in the sun to do this manicure and I honestly WINCED when I first started to paint the silver on, it was that shiny. It does look awesome, but at fairly close up I can see all the flaws an imperfections in my nail surfaces which is pretty irritating. Especially that damned crack in my left middle finger nail (as you’ll see all too easily from the pictures.)
I was accompanied by next door’s cat, Pebbles whilst I did this, I adore her, she’s one of the most amusing cats I’ve ever known. I’d love a cat but Hubby says no at the moment so I just play with her instead! There are a couple of pictures of her at the bottom too 🙂
^^Those were both after the first coat – see what I mean about my middle finger’s nail? :-((
^^After one coat of base and three of silver. Shiny Shiny!!!
