Love & Beauty Nail Polish Swatch
While I was at the mall this past weekend, I was at Forever 21 checking out their jewelries and makeup as usual. I found these two polishes that I thought was pretty so I scooped them up.
It's kinda sad how Forever 21 doesn't have fun names for their nail polishes. This one is labeled baby blue hot pink. The base is a sheer jelly light bluish grey. The polish has larger pink and silver glitters mixed with tiny purple glitters. The formula applied patchy and I had to finagle with the glitters to spread them out evenly. A little bit of work but doable and the result looks pretty decent with 3 coats.
The second polish is labeled as baby blue and it's a sheer jelly baby blue with very fine blue shimmers. Super pretty but application was not so nice. This polish was streaky and patchy. It's also very sheer. I'm wearing 4 coats on the swatches and I can still see some uneven patches. You need to wait a few minutes between coats as it tend to drag when you layer it. I would definitely recommend you use a more opaque color as base.
These Forever 21 polishes aren't too bad for $2.80 a bottle. The formula can use some improvement but otherwise, they do look lovely on the nails.
