I thought I'll make it clear first: CURRENTLY HATING THIS POLISH.
This polish is such a pain to apply. It does look nice, with silver glitters suspended in dark red/maroon jelly, but it is just so hard to put on the nails! What you see is 3 coats, and much swearing and plenty of dabbing.
I put off this swatch because I had tried it once when I got it and I realize it was hard to apply. Plus it does not look extraordinary so I simply let it stew in a corner. Now, it shall go back to the dark corner... and repent...
The problem is in the jelly, I think. There is simply too much jelly that when I tried to paint it, the brush will brush off the previous coat together with the glitter, leaving behind bare spots. Of which I then have to dab carefully to fill it in.
As I said, this is a pretty polish, but perhaps not worth the effort applying it. I shudder to think about the drying time.
Have you seen the new Essence Circus Circus collection? I could not get the gold and black one.. What a pity.
