I applied three thin coats over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. I did not apply any Top Coat for preventing a dominating high shine that would possibly have obscured the soft sparkle of the many magenta particles floating in The Way I Am.
The formula is a dream to work with, while the polish is a jelly the consistency is thickly and applies like a cream polish. Dry time is normal. And look how prettily The Way I Am lights up in artificial light:
Final thoughts: I just love those slightly undefinable soft shades. Contrary Polish The Way I Am is the right mixture between a bit off the edge and avantgarde-esque while still office appropriate. As I type this I already ordered my remaining Love Lyrics polishes I had on my wishlist and they are on the way to their new home :-)
How do you like murky colors?
I ordered Contrary Polish The Way I Am with Llarowe.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
