Polish Alcoholic – Wulfenite

Good evening!

I’m not going to apologise for the lack of post yesterday – my ILNP Ultrachrome review was more than 2 posts’ worth 😉 plus, well, life is too short to spend feeling guilty for silly things!

And don’t worry, I’ve got a good post for you today! I’m a bit obsessed about finding the perfect apricot nail polish – not too light, not too bright, but a nice, clean, pigmented pale orange. I realise this isn’t the most normal thing to get fixated on, but I’m me and that’s the sort of thing I do!

Well, the gorgeous Polish Alcoholic kindly sent me Wulfenite to try and I think that my quest might be over!

Piper Polish – Night Fall & Melon Balla

 

Happy Easter ! I hope that everyone has Friday off, here in France we have to work 😦

I have two Piper Polish shades to show you this evening – Night Fall and Melon Balla.

I ordered these a while ago, but I guess they got checked by the import people or something, because they took a while to arrive. Still, all’s well that ends well and they got here safe and sound 🙂

Swatch – China Glaze – Bare If You Dare (562/70621)

When I was thinking about getting this colour, I found it really hard to work it out – it seems like every photo of it is a different shade! Sometimes it was bright orange, sometimes a nude. This its my take on it :

This is a shade somewhere between apricot and warm orange with a golden shimmer to it. I love China Glaze, but this one was quite hard to work. It dries in average time, but it’s a hot day today. I guess that didn’t help the application.

The first layer is very patchy, with or without base coat, and since it’s a pale shade, maybe it’s not surprising that I needed 3 coats :

I still feel like it’s a bit patchy, but that might be due to the high-shine finish, reflecting light strangely.

The golden shimmer is spectacular in the sun, and I really feel that this is a great summer shade – it changes from the seasonal corals whilst keeping a warm glow. It also looks great next to a tan, but would suit pale skin tones too.

Definitely a keeper!
