Today’s polish picks were definitely interesting. Going off of yesterday (and the fact that I have no plans to leave the house today), I really wanted to pick some polishes that I hadn’t used in a while and looked suspiciously bad. Honestly, I was kind of surprised. Here are the polishes:
Here’s where it gets surprising. I picked this because it was a random red nail polish without a name, and I figured it would be an easy pick to get rid of. I was wrong. This applied really well, and I could either apply one coat for a semi-translucent (not patchy!) look, or two coats for an opaque look. It dried quickly and cleaned up easily. Overall, this was great.
This, on the other hand, was garbage. To be fair, it was about half empty. The glitter was just a gloopy consistency and it wasn’t applying well at all.
Honestly, I didn’t test this the way I should have. I just don’t have a need for it for its intended purpose because If I want a french manicure, I’ll just pay someone to do it for me. That’s one of the only times I’ll get a manicure, in all honestly. As a base, it honestly looks pretty gross and I have better white polishes. This one’s not going back on the rack.
And here’s the (pretty bad) look:
Like I mentioned above, the glitter was gloopy AS HELL, and the sheer white polish just isn’t my cup of tea. That red polish is amazing, though. SO glossy, even without a top coat. It’s definitely one of my rediscovered favorites.
So, two more polishes gone from the collection today. That’s definitely a victory.
