Guppy Sanding Fruit Extract Nail Polish in #12

I just got this polish in the mail today and I couldn't wait to try it on. Luckily my nails were 'naked' at the time, so I waisted no time...

Guppy, Sanding Fruit Extract, 12, 2 coats

There are no words for me to tell you how much I adore this polish. It's magnificent! It's black with silver glitter, almost completely opaque in one coat, but the glitter still remains visible. How awesome is that? You could say it's ugly with it's grainy surface ... but I say it kick ass. It's edgy and hardcore. I'm in love!

Look, they got the writing right this time...

Guppy, Sanding Fruit Extract, 12, 2 coats + Essence, Nail Art Sealing Top Coat, 1 coat

Once you add a top coat to this black magic, it becomes a different polish. It reminds me of China Glaze Haunting I recently put on my wishlist. I know they're not exactly the same, but this baby was enough to make me not want that China Glaze anymore. *erases Haunting off wishlist*
One coat of top coat makes this polish somewhat shiny, but it doesn't completely smooth out the surface. I like that. It's still got some roughness to the touch, but not in a disturbing kind of way.

Here's a side by side comparison: 2 coats of Guppy #12 nail polish without top coat on the left and the same with top coat on the right. Which one do you like better?

I got this polish on Ebay for $2.50 (shipping is free). If you're gonna search this polish on the bay of evil, search for ''cuddv''. ;)

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  1. I was just thinking how this polish looks so great with the gritty surface! Normally that would be a no no for me, but this looks awesome, edgy and hardcore is the best description haha

  2. Besides the texture, it reminds me a lot of one of the Pure Ice polishes at Walmart for $2. It's called Electric.

  5. I think it looks better without top coat! The texture makes it look like asphalt.

  7. I like the one without the top coat more, but I hate when my nails get caught onto clothes and stuff, it is giving me goosebumps!

  9. Sploh se ne morem odločiti, katera verzija mi je bolj všeč. Si jim pa naredila super reklamo, zdaj dejansko razmišljam o tem, da bi še jaz naročila kak njihov lak, hihi :)

  12. Usually, I don't like polishes that are so gritty, especially when some of the glitter is obscured by the base color, but this has a really cool, industrial kind of feel to it. It looks so badass!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Definitely badass. Almost concrete. Wonder if a neon splatter nail art would look cool with it?

  14. Zakon! Brez nadlaka mi je še bolj všeč :D

  15. The one without top coat! It looks like sand paper, I love it.. now I've created a sandpaper polish in my head, I must try to make a franken with desert sand in some day...

  16. I like it without the topcoat. It's so unique! Maybe a matte top coat would smooth it out while keeping the original look.

  17. ovaj je prekrasan... ipak mi se više sviđa s nadlakom :-D

  18. I like this polish. I like the matte look but also it's nice shiny. Reminds me of another polish. I can never remember the name of polishes.

  19. Po prvih dveh sličicah me drži, da pošlatam tvoje nohte. :D Kot kakšen beauty psihopat.

    Meni je tvoja manikura zelo všeč!

  20. I love how it looks with the top coat! Very chic!

  21. I actually love the finish!It's so rough, hehe! I cannot get enough of black with something extra polish, this one is marvelous too!

    ReplyDelete
  22. wah, this one is hot. unique and yeah, hardcore! I'd wear it with studded leather jacket and all that stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  23. AH! Super hot! I'm going to be buying some as soon as I post this comment. I like both looks but I'm in more of a "matte phase" right now so I really really like it without the topcoat. Cheers!
