Morgan Taylor ~ Something to Blog about



Morgan Taylor ~ Something to Blog about
Purple to brown duochromatic shimmer

I usually like Morgan Taylor’s polishes, and I sometimes wonder why they aren’t more popular in the blogosphere than they are.

I received “Something to Blog about” in a swap, and I must admit that it has been sitting in my box of untrieds for a while. I’m not a big fan of brown, not even when it’s mixed up with purple. But anyway – it can’t sit in the box forever, that poor polish, so today is the day!

The formula is a little bit on the thin side, but I still only needed two coats for desired opacity. The drying time is pretty good.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the duochrome effect. Take a look at two coats and no topcoat in ordinary daylight:


I like the purple shade, but I am not a fan of the brown side.


I meant to make a glitter gradient but the sponge was all over the place, so I ended up applying glitter to the entirety of my nails, haha. I used a golden/green/red/blue glitter from Golden Rose. I bought it in Turkey and it’s got number 69.

Here’s how thoses two polishes look together.


“Something to Blog about” has now been blogged about. It’s not my colour at all, but I can appreciate the colour shift nonetheless. What about you – do you like the colour combo?


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Pretty good
Finish: Shimmery duochrome
Overall impression: Good colour shift, nice shimmer, not my colour.
Buy again: No

  3. I love the name - but the rest doesn't make an impression. The glitter helps a lot tho...

  4. Looks like an ok polish, but it looks better with the glitter on top.

  5. It happens very seldom that I like color shifting polishes. Usually they have at least one hue I dislike to my skintone (green, brown, yellow...).

    1. It's funny, isn't it? There are lots of colour shifting polishes I avoid too, those with the golden undertones, and there are a lot of those!
