Trend ~ #03



Trend ~ #03
Deep magenta with shimmer

This polish sat in my box of shame untried until my boyfriend noticed it. He took it out of the box and stated: “That’s pretty!” – I could hear that what he really meant was “Why is this in the box of shame?” And I couldn’t give a proper explanation to that, so I took it out of the box again. I thought I would at least give it a chance to shine for a bit.

The formula is good and the polish is easy to apply. It dries fast and almost covers in one single coat. The second coat did complete the job though. The colour is pretty, even though the shimmer isn’t prominent. The polish has got one downside: It smells. Not as bad as Kleancolor, but it doesn’t smell good.

Here’s what two coats and one layer of topcoat looks like in the lightbox:


I made a stamping gradient on it. I found a great motif on my XL stamping plate “B” and I stamped with Moyou (not Moyou London) stamping polishes in white and blue. I applied a layer of Poshé topcoat and here’s my final mani taken in the sunlight:


I really like the effect of the stamping gradient, I think it’s super cool!


I also like these three colours together.


Verdict:
I don’t think Trend #03 will go back to the box of shame. I like it, despite the bad smell :D
The wear was fantastic too. I took it off after five days, and it still looked like the day I put it on. Amazing!!

    1. I think I'll keep it. I don't mind the smell so much and I like polishes with good wear so it gets to stay this time :)
