The formula on the polish was a little thick, but manageable. Nothing a little polish thinner couldn't fix. The brush is slightly widened and very easy to work with. This is two coats for full coverage...
Collection: Main Salon Formula line
Color Name/Number: Army of 1
Number of coats: 2
Top Coat: yes
Free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP)
I like the color, but once I had it on as a full manicure it just seemed to be missing something... a little spark. Maybe that is because I have been wearing a lot of shimmery polishes lately and the cream finish of this seemed boring, but I decided to spice it up.
I chose to use a polish I have had in my collection for a long, long time, but have not used recently because is so sheer (and I have only recently discovered the magic of layering polishes). Sadly I have no name for this polish. The brand is Prestige about which I also have no information. I'm assuming it either came in some sort of set or dollar store maybe. If anyone has info on this brand please let me know. Trying to google "prestige nail lacquer" is useless since I come up with all the brands that are "prestigious".
The polish is a milky sheer base with a gold shimmer. It is sadly not B3F, which is a big negative in my book. This is one coat of prestige polish over two coats of Ulta's Army of 1...
Some different angles...
It reminds me of the "effect" polishes that are so popular right now. Are you a fan on the layering trend?
P.S. I'm trying to swatch all my Ulta polishes right now because of the requests in the haul post, but I would like to know if you get tired of seeing the same brand day after day and want variety, or if this is good. Your comments are greatly appreciated!
Thanks for looking!
