I got my first JQ polishes, y'all! =) Their bottles resemble the Nfu Oh and Scandal bottles, don't they?
Can I be honest with you? I don't like them. Well, I know I don't like one of them and I'm not completely sure about the other one. They stink (literally) like most of the Ebay polishes I've bought lately but that's not the main problem... Let's see the color swatches first.
I don't know what was I thinking about when I ordered the multi glitter JQ polish #152. One thing's for sure though: if the photos on Ebay were half as good as my color drops, I wouldn't order it in the first place. I'm not saying my photos are all that, I'm just saying that I would appreciate if the sellers actually cared about presenting the item as it is. Forget about the 'color may vary due to monitor settings'. Sometimes you can't even tell what color family a certain polish belongs too. Meh, never mind.
Here's one coat of JQ nail polish in number 152 applied over (from pointer to pinkie):
* Catrice I'm a Star
* Eyeko Saucy Polish
* Essence Hard to Resist
* Wet n Wild Black Creme
Yep, I don't like this one...
And this is the other one in number 150, applied over Wet n Wild Black Creme.
While #152 is a complete miss for me, I actually like the way #150 looks over black. What I don't like is the application. The clear base of this polish is goopy and the glitter is very hard to apply. I used one coat of 150 on pinkie and two for my pointer fingernail. And I had to 'fish' for the glitter too. This is just too much for me. All that trouble over a manicure... The polishes have a long drying time too. And they stink. On the good side, they do have flat brushes. But they're quite bushy, so I'm not sure if it's a good thing or not. To be honest, I'm confused by these polishes. If anyone wants to be a foster parent to the 152 one, let me know in the comments.
EDIT [19th Oct, 2011] All the ladies that mentioned they want to offer a new home to the 152 nail polish, were included in a draw. The random number generator picked Jenna. She replied to my e-mail, so the polish will soon go to it's new home in Finland. =)
Where to buy? Ebay (search for glitter nail polish and you shall find it).
What do you think of these?
Thanks for looking and commenting!
