Hits Mari Moon Cool
This is the other polish that I got from Llarowe last week because of her winner every 10th order promotion. Quite crafty of her to lure me with contests... I am quite the gambler *misses Vegas terribly*. But I definitely do not regret buying this polish, it's mesmerizing!!! It is like a warmer, more pigmented, more AWESOME version of Chanel Peridot. It has a warm golden center that flashes from grassy green through aqua to blue to almost indigo. It got the approval of Mr. Fancy Pants Ricardo at our Lancome National Makeup Artist Event and his traveling artist Dustin. My hand was grabbed and fawned over, I loved it!
The formula on this was kind of a beast: thick and brush strokey with a brush from hell. But a little thinner made it easy to apply, and for some reason I like the metallic brush strokey finish. It wore amazingly well. I only wear polish for a day, but this mani lasted throughout the craziness of our event yesterday with only miiiiinimal tipwear.
For these swatches I did three coats of Mari Moon Cool with one coat of Seche Vite. I gave each coat a couple minutes to dry because I tend to get baaaad bubbling with these tops of chromes. But I only got a couple bubbles, so I'm pleased!
