5 days have passed since my last post.
Let me introduce you to a new category on this blog - THE FIVE DAY NAIL POLISH EXPERIMENT.
In addition to reviewing a nail polish, I will be wearing it on my nails for five days, no base or top coat, and taking a photo every day to show you how well the nail polish stays on my nails. As I previously posted here, the nail polish is essence's multi dimension XXXL shine nail polish in the color 30 LATE AT NIGHT.
I took each photo around 1-3 PM, and you need to keep in mind that things like hair washing, showering and daily duties have an effect on how well and how long the nail polish is going to stay on your nails, and that varies from person to person - the more contact with water you have, the sooner the nail polish will flake off.
I'm wearing two coats of this nail polish, no base or top coat. What I do not like about it is the fact that the red color rubs off on different surfaces like paper, kitchen counters - in fact, there are dozens of red stripes all over my kitchen counters. But I've tested many red nail polishes and the same thing happened every time, unless I put 3 layers of top coat over the red nail polish.
Tomorrow I will finally post, as I promised, a post containing advice on removing red nail polish without it leaving your fingers stained and looking wounded.
I have to warn you though, I am aware that my fingers are not perfect, and you will see that in the photos below. I am working very hard on stopping the nervous messing with my cuticles and fingers in general, and I've come a long way. These are photos of my left hand where nail polish usually, for some odd reason, seems to wear off faster. I cannot really say how much better/worse this nail polish is than others since I don't have other results to compare these to, but with time I will post more and we'll be able to compare them. How things changed day after day is visible in the photos below.
Please do tell me if you like this new category and which nail polish you would like to see next. :)
