W. I. C. by Herome ~ Canberra
Shimmery light purple


This is my first Herome polish. I was so lucky that my boyfriend bought it for me. It looks beautiful in the bottle, shimmery and all, so I fell for it instantly.

Application was very easy. The brush is relatively big and flat and very easy to work with, and the formula didn’t cause any problems at all.

The colour is a bit lighter than my usual comfort zone calls for, but I absolutely love the shimmer in it. To begin with I thought I was going to struggle with brush strokes, but no – no problems in that department either.

Two coats, no top coat:


Pretty, yes?

But obviously not pretty enough ;)
I chose stamping for this baby. The plate I used is called H11 and I used a matte purple from BornPrettyStore called “Suzy skis in the Pyrenees”. It’s a nice dark purple for stamping, I like it. It’s not the first time I’ve used it, and it’s not going to be the last one either.

Here’s the finished mani, all sealed up with a layer of Poshé top coat.


I really like the swirls and how this mani came out. What do you think?


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