Today I would like to show you my newest obession – a nail polish from the Manhattan Blogger’s Choice Collection called “Ni hao in the morning”. When I saw this in the shop I was instantly hypnotized by the blue, green, pink and white shimmer in the off-white base. When I brought my treasure home I looked online for swatches and expected to find choruses of praise for this beauty. But that was not the case! The few reviews I found were disappointed by the sheerness and dry time of this polish. I couldn’t believe that so I tried it right away. One blogger even mentioned that she needed 6 coats in order to achieve a nice look. 6 coats?! Well no wonder that the drying time is horrible then!
Fact is, I needed 3 coats but could have done 2 if I had been a little more careful during application. The application was no problem, I let each coat dry for 20 minutes to avoid dragging though. So, I don’t see the problem with this nail polish! The dry time – well everyone who owns a decent quick dry top coat will have no problems with this whatsoever. I can’t say anything to the dry time since I always use fast drying top coats as well.
Now to the pics! Enjoy and make sure to click the pictures in order to get to view them in full size! I tried different lightings in order to catch the beautiful shimmer. This polish is probably also very good for glitter sandwiches with a twist. Can’t wait to try it! I think the bloggers (I think the ones responsible for the Chinatown bit of this collection were Anna, Magi, and Mira) did a wonderful job!
I hope you liked my swatches! Have you also tried nail polishes that, according to other bloggers, were a nightmare but then you liked them a lot?
