Bottle: Nice long high bottle, don’t like the shiny silver top as it looks a bit cheap. Do really like the diamante stuck in the front of the bottle, that’s great!

Brush: Very nice thin flexible bristles. Long stem so it reaches that last little bit of polish in the bottle too!

Drying Time: First coat dries very fast, send coat takes quite a while longer and remains tacky for quite a while

Thoughts: Very versatile and useful polish, sheer enough to be layered over other polishes and leaves a very nice pearly finish. I’ve also used it as a finish when making my own flat back pearls ^_^ The formula is very thin and doesn’t streak easily.

Good for:

-Changing the colour of other polishes.

-Making very pearly traditional french tips.

-Making flat back pearls and other nail art bits and pieces.

Bad for:

-Plain polished nails, very sheer.

-If you’re in a hurry as drying time for 2+ coats takes a while.
