Allo polish Pals!
How are you all doing today? I hope everything is dandy at your end? What was the highlight of your weekend? I love to know how you guys are getting on.
I'm back home in Holland now. I had a pretty interesting journey home...I'm pretty sure a girl took a picture of me at the airport!! I was sat reading my '201 ways to cure artist block' book. I was pretty engrossed in it but something caught my eye. There was a girl standing fairly close to me (there wasn't any reason to be so close, I wasn't sat next to anything.) she did something with her phone and scurried off! I turned around thinking there must be something cool behind me that I hadn't noticed but there was only a blank wall behind me... how weird?!
Today I have the first of two Born Pretty Store Chameleon nail polishes to share with you. This is '10ml Born Pretty Store Chameleon Nail Polish in 221'.
This polish is recommended to be worn over a black base. I began with two coats of Wet 'N' Wild's 'Black'. I allowed this to dry and applied two generous coats of the BPS 221 nail polish.

The Colour & Shift ~ This polish is a multi-chrome that shifts beautifully between deep purple golds and even a slightly greenish shade. To say the colour shift it apparent doesn't quite do justice. I really love the bewitching and deep look of this polish. I also think that from certain angles and in certain light it has a slightly coppery look to it. It has a fairly watery consistency which allows for nice and smooth application.
Dry Time ~ I found dry time to be a little one the slow side, even with a glossy coat of my Pro-FX top coat but I thought it was totally worth it, I couldn't stop looking at my nails and in my opinion that's always a great sign that I really like a polish.
If you notice on my middle finger there are some bubbles going on there. Now... I don't think that it is because of the polish itself. Because otherwise the others would have bubbled up too so please excuse it, I think I was possibly a little clumsy with how much I had loaded onto the brush. I think this polish could have a tendency to bubble if you apply it too thickly.
Overall I am really, really impressed. Would I recommend this to Miss MCCrumpet? (Wtf?) Certainly if she's looking to expand her Chrome collection on a budget. These polishes retail at $6.99 each – reduced from $15 originally. That's a pretty sweet deal and a steel if you include my discount code!
Now... Since this is recommended on a black base I am super curious to see how this looks on top of white. Would you like to be part of that experiment? I am happy to do a post on it if it interests!
