Hey guys! Today I have a handful of polishes that were sent to me from Live.Love.Polish to review. Live.Love.Polish is an online store that sells nail polish and cosmetics from many different brands. They state that all products they carry are 100% cruelty-free and do not contain formaldehyde, toluene, or dibutyl phthalate, which is a huge plus! They sent me four polishes from four brands; Glitters Daze, Starrily, Powder Perfect as well as I Scream Nails. Read on for more photos in info!
I-SCREAM-NAILS-Of Course Apple Sauce
Description: Of Course Apple Sauce is described as a pastel green creme. Retails for $11/10ml
Formula & Application: I applied two coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Formula was great and applied well. First coat was on the streaky side but leveled out nicely by the second.
Powder Perfect-Black Like My Soul
Description: Black Like My Soul is described as a black cream nail polish with sparkly glitter that looks like stars shining in the midnight sky. Retails for $12/12ml
Formula and Application: I applied two coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. Formula was great and applied very well. Dried to a slightly textured finish due the the micro glitters but once I topped it with a glossy top coat it smooth out.
Description: Balloon Animal is described as a mix of different sized multicolored circle glitters in a clear base. Retails for $12/15ml
Formula & Application: I applied one dabbing coat over Powder Perfects "Black Like My Soul" and sealed it with a glossy top coat. I had no issues with having to fish but I did have to be careful when applying the glitters to not stack them on top of each other. Reminds me of a bunch of planets in a dark starry galaxy! For a smooth finish and to help keep the large glitters from lifting you must seal it with a top coat.
Description: Trippy is described as an emerald (jewel-toned) green multichrome polish. Retails for $12.50/15ml
Formula & Application: I applied three thin coats to achieve full opacity and sealed it with a glossy top coat. It applied easily, not too thick nor thin but I did experience something I wasn't expecting based on photos I have seen on their website. I kept getting these tiny little bumps when I applied it. It was the first polish I swatched and thought maybe they were bubbles from the humidity but after I swatched the other three and didn't experience the same thing with them I figured It may have been something else so I re-swatched it(which are the photos you are seeing) and the little bumps were there again. I'm thinking maybe little undissolved pigment pieces? I expressed my concern with Live.Love.Polish and will update this post with their response and findings.
Overall: I really enjoyed all 4 polishes aside from Glitter Daze Trippy. I enjoyed the color but sadly due to the little bumps it's not something I will use again. My personal favorite was Powder Perfects Black Like My Soul. I love wearing black polishes and use them a lot as bases for my nail art so I know this one will be used tons lol. Which one did you like best?
