NOTD: Guppy Nr. 77
Sarah sent me some of these Korean brand nail polishes to try out that she found in a local shop. Having never heard of this brand, I was really excited to get to sample these. I have tried out 3 different shades so far of the various colours she sent me, and I have to say - so far I am really, really impressed by them!
Formula wise - dare I say it - they are comparable to OPI and go on very smoothly and are opaque in 2 coats, even the nude shades. I noticed absolutely no bubbling or streaking, and best of all, they have a brush similar to OPI's pro-wide brush - flat and wide and perfect for applying. I have to admit I like the formula of this brand better than Gosh and China Glaze, to make some popular brand comparisons. I am honestly utterly amazed at the quality, considering these only cost $2.50 USD in her shop! Right now she only has a few shades listed, but I hope she will add more, these are really great nail polishes at a bargain price.
I'll try to get swatches up soon of the other colors Sarah sent me so you can have an idea of the shade variety. Nr. 77 is a shimmery olive golden green shade. You can check out the other shades she is selling by clicking here. I know she has many other colors of these available so I am hoping she will add more soon, as these polishes are absolutely wonderful!
By the way, I cut and filed off my entire long nails this evening. Look at my cute nubbins! It's so odd to be typing with short nails again. I was just getting a bit tired of my long talons and constantly scratching myself by accident - they'll grow back eventually!
