Taupe? Check. Holographic? Check. Duochrome? Check.

What more can a girl ask for? Without a doubt, this is my favourite nail polish of all time. The problem I have with a lot of nail polishes is I only like them in the sunlight. This polish however still looks incredible indoors and the glitter flashes all the colours of the rainbow. The base colour flashes bronze and even a dusty mauve/pink.

The formula is quite sheer. I’m wearing 4 coats here. The nail line was still slightly visible at 3 coats and even with 4 coats, I can see through my nails when I hold it up to the light. But I don’t mind. This dries pretty fast too and it was easy to apply. The only downside to this polish is it isn’t very glossy. Eh, nothing top coat can’t fix!

I wore this colour for an entire week and there was only a bit of tip-wear by the end of the week. WIN.

  3. You are so right! I love love love this polish :-)
    This is what I thought about it the first time I tried it:

    (I usually don't spread links to my own blog around but I thought it would be maybe ok this time, since we seem to think alike about this wonderful polish. If you find it in any way offensive, just delete the post, I won't hold it against you :-D )
