Color Club ~ Secret Agent with Mohda glitter

Color Club ~ Secret Agent
Vibrant silky frosty purple

Secret Agent is from the Alter Ego collection from spring 2011. I bought the entire set, and since I have so many purples, I just really wanted to try it on and then find a new home for it. But - after having tried it on, I have actually made the decision to let it stay here for now.

The formula is a bit thick, but the polish applies easily and almost non-streaky. Drying time is fast, and this could be a one coater. I almost went with one coat, but decided to add another, just to make sure to give the polish the best conditions to be pretty. The polish is frosty but it still dries up with a silky surface. A great polish, even for girls with many purples ;)

Here’s what two coats and no top coat looks like:


Then I taped my nails and applied a coat of Mohda “Ametista” which is a paler purple with holographic glitter in it. I am sure that this is opaque enough to just take two coats to build up to full opacity, but today I used it for layering. It’s a polish I got from the sweetest girl in Brazil.


I removed the tape while the polish was still wet, and then I covered up the line between the two polishes with Essence’s striper “04 Pink !”. And I finished my mani with a coat of BK top coat. 


Here is a picture of all the polishes I used:

 
I’m liking this myself and hope you do too! Wouldn’t you let Secret Agent be a keeper?
