NYC - 113A

First off, I apologize for the ridiculously long time it has taken me to post again... I'd give an excuse, but really I just needed a break... But now summer is starting again, and I have plenty of time on my hands. Enough time, in fact, to paint my nails a lot more. Also, shamefully, I started biting my nails again, so they're a lot shorter. However, they're longer than they have been previously, and hopefully I can use this blog as an excuse to not bite them... We'll see how long that lasts... :)


Anyways, on to the polish!


To start up again, I decided to randomly choose a polish... This one is a shimmery purple, although it looks almost lavender-ish on my nails... Although it's not necessarily amazing, the application was decent, and it looks fine. This would definitely not go under my absolute favorites, but it's also not on the worst list either... In short, this is a pretty "blah!" polish, which is kind of weird, considering how purple it is...


My only problem(s) with this polish was the application... The brush was really tiny, so it took several more strokes. Furthermore, it was pretty streaky, which required even more strokes to even everything out... It still ended up looking good, though, so I guess it wasn't too bad... Just a little bit of a pain... :)

Here's what it looked like in the bottle!


This is pretty close to its true shade, although I think my camera kind of warped the color of it on my nails...




And now for the (somewhat changed) rating (system)!!!
Number of Coats: 2 (and no base coat/top coat either...)
Finish: Frost/Foil-y
Application: 2.5/5
Color: 3/5
HILTND: no chipping, but there were a lot of sheet marks... and the polish is really dull now...
Overall Rating: 3/5 - mediocre
Next Polish: to be determined... (have a suggestion, leave me a comment!)
Thanks for reading, and I apologize (once again) for the ridiculously long delay... :)
