I recently scored some OPI shades at TK Maxx (1 bottle for 4,99 EUR!), one of which was Chiffon My Mind from the 2015 Soft Shades collection. It is a sheer shimmery white. The purple, pink and blue shimmer mesmerized me so I had to take this one home. This kind of 3 coloured glassfleck-y microshimmer gets me every time!
Unfortunately, Chiffon My Mind turned out to be very sheer and streaky, so the application was not much fun. It took me three coats to get to the results below, and it was still not perfect. Also, three coats of this plus one coat of HK girl fastdry top coat is a lot of polish to dry. Sometimes it then happens that the Fast Dry Top Coat dries faster than what’s underneath. This is what happend to me: the polish got a little wrinkly on my pinky as you might be able to see on one of the pictures, and I hate that effect.
But I liked wearing it. Very work appropriate, very delicate. Also, I wore this for 3 days without any chipping or tip wear, so it was worth the effort of 3 coats. Chances are I won’t be wearing it any time again soon though, I’m just too lazy for nail polish with 3 or more coats. I might try some layering though, I’m sure it would look very nice over a dark blue creme or over a white crelly in order to reduce the number of required coats. As you can see in the pictures below, the shimmer is visible on the nail, which is great!
I wish this beauty had a better formula. I would probably wear it all the time.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Do you have nail polishes in your stash that you hardly wear because you know the formula is a pain?
Have a great week!
