Swatches > Nina Ultra Pro Lacquer | Promegranate

Such a pretty color right?!  Well, I'm here to tell you it was a beast to apply! Don't let the sparkles fool you, it took three coats to get an even look.  This is exactly why I don't usually go for the off-brand beauty supply store nail polishes.  I was attracted to the bright sparkly pink color and figured why not give it a go.  It was from a new collection at the time I purchased it, which is funny that I even noticed it.  Mainly, because I rarely pay attention to any other brands than ChG, Orly, or Finger Paints when I go to Sally's.  Anyhows, it started to recede within a few hours after application and took what seemed like forever to dry.  I haven't experienced and chipping however, which is a plus, and that's being said after going bowling last night.  Overall, I'd say thumbs up on the color and none chippage, but thumbs down on the formula and drying time.

Sidenote:  Pinks/fuchsias/reds were always my go-to colors, so unfortunately now I get rather bored with them quickly.  This pink is not at all boring, its actually very pretty.  However, for the likes of me, it just doesn't quite do it for me.
