Nostalgic ~ F*ck and Run



Nostalgic ~ F*ck and Run
Red jelly packed with red, pink and orange shimmer and flecks

I was so thrilled over the first Nostalgic polish that I could barely wait to try the other one on. The concept is the same: A jelly base packed with shimmers and flecks, only this time in red, pink and orange.

Once again I found the formula sheer and a bit thin. It’s definitely manageable though, and I didn’t get my cuticles flooded or anything. The polish builds up nicely in three fast drying coats. And the various colours of shimmers make this polish anything but just another red.

Take a look at what three coats and a layer of topcoat looks like:


Can you see the various colours of flecks and shimmers? It’s really special!


The shine is amazing – and I love that this doesn’t show any signs of coral in it. I’m not good with corals. In fact, from afar this almost looks like a cherry red, because of the pinks in it.


It’s nice to wear bright colours in the winter too. It can be a bit boring when all the colours are dull and dark. This polish definitely does its magic!


Take a look at the bottle on this next picture. It shows how the polish is packed with shimmer!


I didn’t want to cover this up too much, so I just applied some nail stickers. I think that looks pretty sweet.



Verdict:
I like this polish! It can be used to shimmer up another red as a layering polish, but I must admit that I prefer it on its own. I am willing to forgive that it’s a three coater because it dries so fast between the coats. If you love reds and shimmers like I do, then you should definitely give this polish a go!
