So here’s where I’m going to get caught out using older pictures! In my last post, my nails were as short as they are now, as I had a practical exam (which I passed by the way – woo!) and the eagle-eyed among you will notice that my nails are long in this post! Well it’s because I’m a bad blogger and I’m backlogging. Sorry!
I bought this lovely one last year, at the beginning of December, and it pretty much marked the beginning of my interest (read: obsession) with nail polish!
Movie Star is one of those colour-shifters… in most lights it looks a very pinky-red, then occasionally it will appear a very orange toned red which makes no sense! It’s kind of a foily-glitter polish, certainly very interesting and quite unique. What I like about it is that it’s festive but without being quite so ‘out-there’ as a true glitter. Also it is a lot more easy to apply and remove than a true glitter!
It was practically opaque in one-coat, but I added a second just to be sure. As it’s a 60-second polish, surprise surprise, it dried really quickly. Usually super fast dry-time = streaky draggy mess, but Movie Star has that lovely foily consistency which doesn’t seem to drag, so it’s a big bonus!
The brush is quite wide, which for me is a bonus as it means less dabbing around trying to cover my whole nail, but I know a lot of people with slimmer nails will find it a pain.
All in all I LOVE this polish, it’s so pretty and eye-catching without being as OTT as glitter (can’t believe I am saying this, as a full-time glitter addict!) and it’s lovely for Christmas time and New Years!
I’ve finished my first semester now, exciting! This means I will hopefully have a lot more time to blog for 3 weeks, before going on placement for 6 weeks. I’m very very happy at the moment, things are going wonderfully Hope you are all feeling as good as me! Oh and my GlossyBox came on Thursday, my favourite box so far you will be seeing a very special something from it on my blog in the next few days!
