Astor ~ 110

Astor ~ 110
Burgundy red with pink and silver shimmer


Here’s another polish I bought in Germany. It spoke to me even though it’s not a particularly loud polish. I love dark reds and especially if they’ve got shimmer in them too. So this polish had to be mine.

The formula was great and it’s drying time was very fast, so the two coats were almost self applying. I love formulas like that.

Two coats, no top coat yet:


I stamped on it too, to give it some extra life. I used a semi big square plate with the number to-11 on it, and stamped with Konad’s white stamping polish. I chose a very simple butterfly design and stamped it twice on each nail except for on the pinky, that only got one butterfly on it. And then I stamped a simple flower on the accent nail.

And here it is with a layer of Poshé top coat:



I quite like this. It is spring after all, and I’m so looking forward to seeing the first butterfly. :)


Opacity: 8/10
Colour, prettiness: 7/10
Durability: 7/10
Value for money: 8/10
Overall: 7.5/10
Buy again: Yes
