Good Morning Polished People!
I like to say I’m all about contrast. I like to wear my contacts sometimes, then sometimes my glasses; I like to wear bright colors, then a nice nude; I like to go dark and vampy, then wear a pretty girly color; I like growing my hair long (it’s to the small of my back right now) and then cut it off short (I think I’d like a reverse A-line again); and I like to wear lots of sparkly glitter polishes, then boycott them and use nice, smooth, easily removable cremes for a while. I guess that’s why I like wearing polish out of season. I like wearing a dark, typically wintery color in the summer, and wearing bright summer shades in the winter. Today I’m show you a polish that is way out of season. It’s a dark, vampy, shimmery polish with some glitter thrown in for interest. Let’s have a look!
Androgynie is a black jelly base with lots of gold shimmer and sparse blue, light green, orange/gold and maybe a little purple hex glitter. It dries a little less than shiny, so you’ll want a good topcoat with this.
This polish was a little troublesome. I really loved it but I wish application was a little easier. The large glitter always sinks to the bottom, so you’ll need to either invert it before you use it and in between doing each nail (yes, it settles THAT fast), or shake it frequently. Now, will you get bubbles in your polish from shaking it? Maybe, so be gentle. The other problem I had with this polish is that the base is so opaque that the subsequent coats cover the glitter from the previous and don’t allow much peeking-through which is what’s so special about jelly sandwiches or pseudo jelly sandwich polishes.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
I don’t mind messing with it and I might try layering it over a regular black and see how that works. Overall this is a yes, please for me, but if you’re someone who likes a no-nonsense polish, this aint for you. 😉
How do you like this polish, and how much work are you willing to do to get a polish looking decent? Maybe it’s just me, but do any of you have a hard time when your nails are unintentionally asymmetrical? Like one hand has a lot more visible glitter than the other? (see mine above) It drives me a little crazy. I need symmetry and order in my life! 😉 Let me know if you’re the same way! Thanks for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!! 😀
