Ok so I was late to the party on this one – I have seen a lot of pictures of this polish, it was very popular when I first became interested in nail blogs and yes it was pretty but… I didn’t get it. It doesn’t help that it is purple of course.
When Denise from Dizzy Little Digits came to the UK a few months back I helped her get her hands on a few bottles of this to take back to the states with her – apparently this is an exclusive to either the UK or Europe so like gold dust in the states. I was happy to help but didn’t really take a lot of interest in the polish.
Today I saw it in person, in my local Boots for the first time ever and ermm WOW. Why did no one tell me?! I get it now. I had to have it. This is a very dinky bottle of polish for £3.99 really but it is amazing and using it as a topcoat over another polish (I used Barrym Indigo here) means it will last a lot longer.
The only bug bear I have with this polish is how ridiculously dinky the brush is; IS THAT IT?! I exclaimed mentally to myself as I unscrewed the lid. That said, the brush is easy to work with and does the job, it was just a bit of a shock… I am used to bigger… wider… it was just unexpectedly small but hey, I know what I am doing!
I got it on my fingers and this beautiful warm red shimmer erupted – very nice indeed. I did frown however as I just couldn’t get that blue green duo-chrome in the shimmer to appear. I decided to add a golden flourish (BarryM Gold Foil meet MoYou Stamping Plate Sailor Collection 04) and get to photographing. BOOM! There was the fantasy and magic and fire on my nails. There was the next challenge – how to photograph it to show you all.
I am actually fairly pleased with how the shimmer and brightness picked up without my hands turning a funny colour but I am sensing some real skeptics out there about this duo-chrome… so here you go non-belivers, check out my duo-chrome spectrum shot:
I believe there is free delivery for Superdrug at the moment so if you want this beauty and don’t want to have to go anywhere to get it then go go go 🙂
