It’s always difficult for me to choose nail polish when the weather is dreary, and this has been quite a dark weekend here. I finally settled yesterday on an untried glitter polish that seemed like it would be a bright and cheerful contrast to the darkness outside.
Born Pretty Store Yogurt Series No. 4 has a blue-green jelly base with a few different colors and sizes of glitter. There are large silver hexes, smaller copper and purple hexes, and some thin silver bars. It’s an interesting combination and not one I’ve seen before.
This polish is not terribly difficult to apply, but the glitter does have a tendency to ‘bunch up’ on the nail a little bit, so some care does need to be taken when applying. The base color is quite translucent, which allows great visibility for the glitter, but it also allows for a VNL. It’s not terribly noticeable because of all the glitter, but it is definitely there. The bar glitter does have a tendency to curl as well, which is a real bugaboo for me. I only applied one coat of top coat, so perhaps this could be lessened were one to apply multiple coats (as you know, something I’m not really willing to do). The polish dried quickly, but it does have a strong ‘nail polish’ scent, which will be off-putting for those with scent sensitivities. I used a glitter base, three coats of polish, and my normal top coat for the photos.
This polish is definitely a bright contrast to this weekend’s weather. It’s not quite my cup of tea, though, so I’ll probably be adding this one to my “find me a new home” pile.
I purchased this polish from Born Pretty Store for around $4.00. Definitely search online for a coupon code if you intend to purchase from there, because there are lots of 10 percent off your purchase coupons for this store floating around the interwebs.
