Pupa 515

I have seen my share of posts on Pupa polish on the Internet and on Instagram but never thought I would find this brand in Switzerland. So one day when strolling through my local Manor store I found a hidden tiny rack of Pupa Cosmetics and while most polishes were pastels (and I don't need any more of these) there was Pupa 515, a bright and happy shade of orangey coral:

As to be expected with such bright colors the first coat went on a bit streaky but the second coat levelled out everything nice and smooth. Pupa 515 dries to this exact high shine that you see in my pictures. Dry time is fast. The consistency is nice and the brush is not too wide or narrow and very soft. I particularly like the size and form of the cap as it makes it easy to hold the brush.

I again wanted to use a nailsticker from my new Bourjois Easy Nail Art Set and picked a cute little bow for my ring finger


Final thoughts: I am very happy with my first Pupa polish and will hopefully get around to wear it often  in the coming spring and summer. 

Have you tried any Pupa polishes?

I googled Pupa 515 and found out that this polish evidently was released for Summer 2011. I also checked Pupa's homepage but Pupa 515 was not listed there, so I cannot really tell you about its availability. I bought both Pupa 515 and the Bourjois Easy Nail Art Set with the local Manor store.

I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
