Today I have a Nail Prism for you. I have been hearing a lot about them lately, it seems they are making a come back in dollar stores in the States. I had originally purchased mine this year at the discontinued cosmetics warehouse I always talk about. I kept going back every so often to build up my collection, I have a pretty large collection of prisms now thanks to that place, all for 50 cents each :)
Anyways, moving on, this polish is almost impossible to photograph properly! there is so much going on in this colour it is nuts! This nail prims, by the way, is called Turquoise Opal. you have to click on all the photos to see the colours up close.
The above photos were taken with my camera flash and you can see the green turquoise shimmer. For the most part I saw purple/blue/green. Because of daylight savings time it is hard for me to capture polishes like this in natural sunlight, and unfortunately I was not wearing this polish on the weekend so I do not have natural sunlight photos :(
I did, however get some decent pictures without the flash, in these picture you can definitely see the many colours little bottle of polish has.
The pictures above remind me of space cadet a bit, but those 2 polishes are totally different, same idea with the mutichrome though.
These last 2 photos remind me of galaxy girl, this polish literally has a rainbow of colours in the bottle ;)
So I'm sure the photos speak for themselves for the pros of this polish .... now on to the cons:
- polish is super thin, I layered it over a medium blue and I'm pretty sure I used 3 or 4 coats to reach full opacity
- the polish bubbled, this is probably due to all the coats and my impatience in between coats lol
- takes a while to dry, but again this may be due to all the coats of polish.
What I will do next time I wear a nail prism is layer it over black or a really dark base colour so I hopefully will not have to use so many coats to reach opacity.
On the bubbles note, I find that a lot of my older Sally Hansen's bubble on me. I think I have to be a little more careful with them in the future, applying thinner coats and allowing time to dry in between. Does this happen to you too?
What do you think of this polish? If you own it, how do you deal with the bubbling and opacity?
