GOOD TO KNOW:
Type of polish: Shimmer (almost foil).
Colour: A medium purple base filled with so much red shimmer that it looks like a warm glowing purple foil. :D I can also see some blue shimmer in it and in dim lighting the polish looks like a red polish because of all the red shimmer in it! :D So I guess you can say that this is both a purple AND a red polish in one bottle! ;)
Collection: Color Club Winter Affair Holiday Collection 2012.
Opacity: Good! This is two coats. If you do very thin coats you might need a third coat. I did two fairly thick coats and it's completely opaque. :)
Drying time: Normal.
Formula: Just as Ho-Ho-Holly, from same collection, this one has a bit of a tricky formula I'm afraid... At least for the first coat. The formula is rather thin and I had to apply the first coat with light strokes and lots of polish on the brush in order to avoid bald spots... Second coat applied much better.
Brush: Good! Not too thin, so quite ok. I wouldn't have mind if the brush had been a bit thicker though... ;)
Shine: Shiny on its own, but I have one coat of Seche Vite in these pictures. I noticed a bit of a tip wear after the top coat had dried... :/ That is that the polish sort of shrank a tiny bit so that the utmost tip of the nail was left without polish. We're talking half a millimeter here, not centimeters ;)
Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Quite accurate. Best picture is the artifical light picture. The others don't show off all the red shimmer enough and it's more sparkly and glittery IRL too! And I promise you that the last picture when it looks really red is how it really looks in dim lighting! It truely turns from purple to red! And not in a duochrome way, there's no variegation, it just turns red! :D
Grade: 4/5 :)
This is an amazing polish even though the formula could have been better. I've never seen a purple polish with so much red shimmer in it! I think that is why I like it because normally I don't like purple polishes. And the way it turns red sometimes is just astonishing!! I've never seen anything like it! :
What did you think of this one ladies?
