Actual Product Pic:



Pigmentation & Color:

This is a gorgeous glossy black with large silver particles! Two coats gives a beautifully opaque finish! :)

This is me wearing two coats:



Texture & Scent:
This nail polish, though thick, it applies smoothly and it dries quickly. This smells like nail polish!! lol!! :D

Packaging:


This nail polish comes in a glass bottle with the usual brush applicator attached to the cap! The brush is a little shorter than I prefer, but it works well nevertheless.



Time Test:
This lasts more than a week on my digits with only one small chip! :D

Price & Availability:
This nail polish costs RM22, and should be available at all The Body Shop outlets.


My $0.02:

This is definitely an impulse purchase because you know i'm not crazy over nail polishes! I was simply smitten by the dark glossy black and pretty silver particles!! :D

This polish applies like a dream and dries in a jiffy too. Most importantly, it lasts and lasts on me, which is amazing considering most polishes don't even last through a hair wash everytime!! :D

This is how it looks like on the 6th day with no top coat:



Still no chips!! Amazing yeah?? :D :D

Wondering how its 02 Sparkling Pink sister looks like? This is my friend wearing it:



According to her, it applies beautifully too, and this photo is taken after a week. As you can see, it has minimal chips, which is amazing considering that she is a kindy teacher!! lol!! :D

All in all i really like this polish, and will repurchase if its available again! :D

  11. Elianto has an almost-the-same-colour of this too! It's also black with silver shimmers and looks freaking pretty. It was cheaper though, Rm10. =)
