I feel in love with this polish the moment I saw it online. I'm a big purple lover so I knew I'd have to have this beauty. Now if only it was true love, but it wasn't. I had more issues with this polish that made it hard for me to want to keep wearing it. Okay so a good surprise was that I didn't need a base coat on this one because there was really good coverage , didn't think that would be the case with it being a jelly but it was. I did three coats would have been fine with just two but i wanted more larger pieces of glitter. I topped it off with seche vite and I was good to go. I sat back admiring the polish and went about with my day. So maybe a hour later I'm checking out my mani and it was gritty and dull looking. So okay i'll put on another layer of seche vite no big problem. Okay I gave up refreshing this mani with a fresh top coat after maybe the 3rd time, also i did use a regular top coat as well, but it made no difference. I've never had such a thirsty polish!! I then had an issue where it looked pitted from where the larger pieces of glitter were. The outside pic I have up is really the 2nd day of wear and I got shrinkage from the seche vite because I had to keep topping off the nails with it and also I got shrinkage on the top towards the cuticles that did not look really nice, it messed up and made it look like I did a bad job painting my nails (hah which we all know is impossible, hahah(I wish) ). I just wanted to share how it looked after two days I don't have this happen with a lot of nail polishes on day 2. I know it's not pretty but it's the truth!! I did not have this issue with Across the Universe but then again I did paint it on top of another similar nail polish color, maybe this one would be better on top of one coat of black. but i dunno prob wouldn't make a difference. For the price I paid I wish my results were different.
