Out all of my polishes, I'm 99% sure this one takes the cake for the longest description/name but never mind. After whinging that I didn't own any textured polishes a few days ago (here), I got some a little envelope containing My Cherry Amour from the Gumdrops collection of Nicole by OPI. These polishes are described to have a 'sugar-like finish that lightly shimmers with fine glitter particles for a brilliant candy colored finish'. As far as I know, this collection is not yet available in Australia but living in this global village, I managed to snap it up from eBay from this seller for a little less than $17 and got it in just two weeks from the States.
My Cherry Amour has become my, er..., current (and possibly very long lasting) love. It has the perfect formula, three coats were dry within ten minutes, it has an even texture and the colour... My jaw dropped when I saw the dried up colour on my nails. It's this beautiful magenta with holographic glitter that shines like an absolute beauty in the sun and out of it.
Swatch below was done with three coats but two depending how light or dark you want the polish to look, you can get away with one or two. I added the third coat mostly because my camera was freaking out at the shine and colour of the polish.
I'm putting a page break here because I don't yet know when too many photos are too many. Are 15 photos in total too many?
I noticed I had to change the lighting a few times on these photos as the polish can look different in each type of lighting.
This are the sun shots. The colour was completely inaccurate but you can see the holo glitter do its magic.
I couldn't quite capture on camera but the blurry photo represents how the holo of the polish look all the time at any light.
The glitter in the bottle had a strong linear holo effect but it doesn't translate to the nail. I'm not saying this as bad element of the polish, it's actually the complete opposite, I could sit here looking at my nails AND the bottle for ages. :)
This polish reminds me of Picture Polish's Dorothy, if Dorothy was textured and the silver glitter was holographic instead.
I can't stop touching my digits and looking at the reflecting light from the glitter. This is an stunning polish that I can see myself wearing constantly. If you can get your hands on it, I would recommend you do without hesitation.
Have you tried any textured polishes? Got any favourites? Any others you'd recommend?
Till next time,
