I have another polish that belongs to Mari for you today! I present to you Lather, Rinse, Repeat by Misa. First, isn't that such a cute name? I love unique polish names. Makes it easier to remember them. This is a bright neon pink color. But it has a peachy orange tone to it under certain lights (especially under sunlight). I tried to capture that in photos but it's impossible. I even googled other pictures of this polish and they all look pink. So you'll just have to take my word that it has some peachy orange in there. This color is insanely bright. Like I think it could stop traffic! I walked into work and my boss was like "wow that's bright." So imagine how bright it is that a guy noticed! I applied 2 coats. Fantastic formula.
After two days I decided to tone down the brightness. It felt weird seeing my nails that bright. So I decided to go with a crackle. Seems like the craze for crackles have died down a bit. It's a shame because you really can make pretty color combinations and there are a few colors I was waiting to see be made into a crackle polish. So I went with China Glaze Crackle in Fault Line. This is a vibrant purple with fuchsia micro shimmer. This purple reminds me of royalty. I applied 1 coat on most nails. However, I had to quickly apply a 2nd coat for a few nails because I didn't have enough polish on the brush for the 1st application. Since I applied this over a 2-day old manicure it was obviously applied over dry polish (top coat). That is how you get the best cracking effect, over dry polish. Then I applied 2 coats of seche vite topcoat. One coat isn't enough if you want a smooth finish. The crackle effect is too textured.
I did notice that the formula seemed thicker than when I originally bought this collection. Has anyone else experienced this?
On another note, I can't wait for tomorrow. I'm going to St. Louis to be with my boyfriend for Valentine's Day weekend. Just sucks because I fly back home at 6am on Valentine's Day morning. It's little things like that that make a long distance relationship suck. You don't get those simple things that every other couple gets. I can't wait 'til I move. I have about 6 1/2 months to go!
I hope you all like it. Happy polishing!
