Glam Polish ~ Fruit of the Poisonous Tree



Glam Polish ~ Fruit of the Poisonous Tree
Rich deep purple with fuchsia/red/copper sparkle and scattered holo effect

Fruit of the Poisonous Tree is from the Welcome to Storybrook collection and is quite the most gorgeous polish in the collection. The colour is rich, deep, sexy and vampy - just to mention a few of the superlatives that spring to mind.

The formula is fantastic and the polish is almost self-applying. The drying time is a bit on the slow side but the coverage is really good. You could get away with one coat of this if you were in a hurry, although I used two coats and it did make a difference: It made the colour even richer!

Take a look at two coats and a thin layer of topcoat:


Look at those sparkles! Aren’t they just amazing???


The polish is also gorgeous in low lights. I seriously love this shade of purple.


I gazed at it for a long while, not really wanting to cover any of this prettiness up! At the end I went for a bit of glitter by the base of my nails; I used Delush Polish’s Nue Girl for that and I just sponged it one with a makeup sponge. I sealed the whole thing up with another layer of topcoat and here’s the final mani:


And a non-flashy picture:



Verdict:
I think I just got myself a new favourite purple! It’s amazing!


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: A bit slow
Finish: scattered holo with shimmer
Overall impression: That’s my new precious!
Buy again: Yes

I bought Red Handed from Edgy Polish. It sold out really quickly, but keep your eyes peeled, it might get back in stock!
