I'm normally a fan of Love & Beauty nail polishes because they're relatively cheap (around P240+) and they perform really well. The formula is also not too runny yet it isn't thick that it makes it too hard to work with. The color selection is amazing: they range from pale pastels to bright neons. The brush reminds me of OPI's: wide yet sturdy. Although honestly, the polish itself smells a little off - it reminds me strongly of the scent of freshly dried paint.
Pardon the uneven application
While on the queue to pay for some dresses, I chanced upon their nail polish display and after puttering around, I finally picked out this shade. The first thing that caught my eye was the color: a bright fuchsia. Hello, my greatest weakness, we meet again.
I applied it as soon as I got home, but got instantly disappointed once I saw how it dries. The finish is a cross between matte & shiny - it's weird. It feels smooth to the touch but it looks chalkboard-dry. It doesn't do any good on my fingers either, except that it ages my hands like no other. It doesn't have a particularly good staying power - chipping after only a couple of days.
I have tried other Love & Beauty Nail Polishes, and they weren't like this. They were actually at par with the likes of my Orly, OPI nail polishes. I guess there's always a bad apple that spoils the bunch.
What's on your nails right now? :)
