Hazel requested a review for these polishes so, here it is!
I'm eternally looking for decent quality but inexpensive polishes. I have had a few fails before like the Regina's Polishes which sell for Php10 each bottle but I do think these may be a win.The packaging is pretty decent. It's small and square which is kinda unique. It doesn't have the ingredients printed on it though which is a potential problem to some of you.
Other than that, the packaging is pretty good considering the price you're paying for it.
The color range is impressive. If you visit Unimart at Greenhills, they have a very wide variety of colors you can choose from. But Unimart is the only place I've ever seen them so, they might not be widely available.
Onto the actual formulation.
As you can see in the photo above, it took four coats for it to reach my desired level of opacity. Four coats is a coat more than what I'm used to but, again, considering the price, we should be thankful that it doesn't take the whole bottle to become opaque.
Drying time is typical but slightly on the quick side. It's not one of those polishes that dry within thirty seconds but it's not one of those that take forever to dry either.
As you can see in the photo above, this time, it only took three coats to be completely opaque so, I guess it varies per bottle but it probably just ranges from three to four coats.
The formulation is actually not a problem because from experience with drugstore polishes, like my Caress polishes, the longer I had it, the lesser coats it took to become opaque.
Based solely on the aforementioned, I think it's a pretty good polish for Php13 something. (Check my haul for the exact price)
The staying power is a different topic altogether. In my opinion, the nail polish is only as good as your base/top coat. But I did take it on a road test.
Four days after I have painted my nails and NO CHIPS IN SIGHT! It's amazing! My Caress polishes chip within the next three days.
Although, what I can say about this polish is that you're gonna need a good top coat over this. As you can see from the photos above, there were scratches and dents on it.
And can someone help me with this? In the very top photo of the three above, there are bumps/bubbles. What are those? Please comment. Thank you!
So, there you have it!
Personally, I would definitely be purchasing more from this brand. I love the colors and I love the price! All I need is a good top coat and it will be amazing!
Hope you like!
Is there anything else you guys would like me to do/review? I'll do anything for you!
