Absolut Lacquer- Confetti Intervention
Back in the beginning of March Absolut Lacquer had a contest to name her new collection of polish. My kids and I looked at the bottle shots and I let them each try and pick a name. It was a fun, and the first time my boys didn't roll their eyes at the mere mention of nail polish. Well wouldn't you know it, one of the names was picked! Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Confetti Intervention
I don't remember which one of my 3 picked the name but if you ask them they will each tell you it was their idea. I, however, am the lucky one that gets the bottle of polish.
If you've followed my fb page for any length of time you will know that I haven't been a big fan of glitter polish. Don't get me wrong I love it on others. I just didn't like the thought of the texture on my nails or the pain of removing it. This year for 2013 I vowed to change that. You might be asking yourself... Why am I telling you this? Well, I have a feeling that my lack of experience with glitter polish may have played a roll in the slight problems I had with the application of this polish at first.
Before I get into all of that though, let me show you what this gorgeous polish looks like on.
Here I have 3 coats on my pinkie finger alone and 3 coats over an unnamed silver polish on the other fingers. You can see a slight pink undertone on the pinkie that I thought was my natural nail showing through but I was wrong. In natural light, the pink showed up on the other nails too.
Now for the application. I found that when I applied the polish like I normally do the glitters wanted to slide up to the tip of my fingernail, leaving the base of the nail bare. I decided to let each layer dry completely between application and that fixed the glitter slipping issue. I still had to do some slight playing around to get the placement that I wanted but that ended up being minimal. The dry time was actually really quick and I ended up only having to wait about a minute or two between finishing both hands and then starting over again. And the wear time was phenomenal. I wore this for one full week without a single chip and very minimal tip wear.
This picture was taken 5 days after application!

This polish is so beautiful. I have a really random question though-what colour glitters has yours got in it? I've got my own bottle sat here and yours looks MUCH more colourful! (Mine only has orange, blue and yellow glitters!) I was just wanting to check before I contacted the seller.ReplyDelete
My bottle contains Red, orange, yellow, green and blue glitters in it. And I played around quite a bit to get them all on the nail at once. Im not sure if it makes a difference but my bottle came from a naming contest that I won. That may explaine the difference but it doesn't hurt to ask the seller. THank you for checking out my post. I hope I was able to help you out with your question.Delete
I've emailed her to ask-it could be that mine is from a different batch or something-you're right! Thanks for getting back to me =)Delete
You're very welcome. I try to get back to all the comments I get right away but sometimes work gets in the way.Delete
