Every now and then, my hubby will bring home a nail polish for me, especially if he sees a cool one on sale. It’s incredibly sweet! Yesterday, he grabbed Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Violet Flicker – which after I did some googling, turns out to have been from their Hunger Games Catching Fire Capitol Collection. Well, of course, I gave him a big ol’ smooch and major husband kudos.
Violet Flicker is a violet-berry polish with a glass fleck shimmer of magenta and blue. It’s extremely unique to anything I have in my collection. I absolutely love the blue reflects! It’s pretty sheer with one coat. Two coats will do, but three thin coats turned out to be absolutely stunning. I topped it with Poshè fast dry top coat and it just glistens.
The formula of this nail polish is excellent. I found it easy to apply without flooding my cuticles and it levels itself out nicely. The brush is shorter and wider than I normally like, but I have tiny nails and go for tiny brushes (think Essie and Zoya). The wide cap is a little awkward to use, but I managed ok. Since I’m just ok day 2 of wear, we’ll consider this a first impression. 🙂
This polish formula is 5-free, which I totally appreciate! I’m trying to at least stick with 3-free because of fumes and migraines, etc. This polish is a little stinkier than my Zoya, but it’s pretty enough to open a window. 🙂
These polishes are marked down to around $2.50 at Target!
