Hi everyone~ Today's post features a new to me brand! I recently had the opportunity to try one of theBalm's nail polish in Call me iridescent. In the bottle, you can see a glorious duochrome with silver glitter mixed into it and on the nail, it doesn't disappoint! I apologise for not having any individual photos of the polish, none of the photos came out well unfortunately.
I applied three thin coats of Call me iridescent as it is rather sheer. At three coats though, it covered perfectly. I topped the look off with theBalm Time for a quicky quick dry top coat, which was unfortunately a disappointment. It was neither quick drying nor shiny; in fact, it dried at about the same rate as my non quick dry top coat Revlon Just tinted shiny top coat, except without the shine. I found the formula to be really thin and runny and the brush was stiff and didn't spread. Quite a let down as I was expecting a lovely quick dry top coat!
I stamped with BM-319 and Ulta3 black satin, then finished the look with the Revlon top coat.
theBalm nail polishes can be found in David Jones and selected pharmacies Australia wide, retailing at $13.95 each.
I really love Call me iridescent but I know I will be passing on the quick dry top coat! What are your thoughts on the pretty polish? :)
Thanks for reading!
