Sephora Color Hit Nail Polish in no.47, Cross the Line 5.40€
Erre Due Ceramic Top Coat 6.50€
I am very happy with today’s nail polish. First of all, it’s only 5.40€ (and, if you happen to get it on a special, like I did, you’ll get two for the price of one). It’s got an extremely handy brush, wide and flat (kinda like the Bourjois ones, but wider) which makes for a very precise and effortless application. The color glides on perfectly and is immediately a perfect match to what you see in the bottle – so much so, that you could easily get away with only wearing one coat of this. The two coats I applied dried quickly enough to not drive me crazy (please note: I’m not a patient gal, so that would actually mean pretty darn quick) and the post top- coat application result leaves absolutely nothing to be desired. Well, except for… durability that is! Keep your eyes peeled for an update on how well that panned out, next week.
I am happy to report that apart from some very minor chips on the edges of my nails (due to banging away, all week long, on a computer keyboard @work) this lasted through to Saturday – and might have lasted even longer with a slight touch- up (which I didn’t really bother with, since it was already time for me to try out another color for Vol.3). That said, please keep in mind that I am no domestic goddess, so the above goes for “minimal chore conditions”. If you tend to do a lot around the house (and much of that includes soaking your hands) this will most probably last much less…
