Petrol is the first creme polish that I’ve tried from Gina Tricot, and it was a pleasant encounter. The formula was easy to work with and IÂ ended up with two coats. I am really weak for petrol colored things, be it nail polish, makeup or clothes, so I couldn’t resist this one.
Here I’ve also tried PoshĂ© top coat for the first time. I’ve been using Seche Vite for a couple of years now, but I can’t really get over how thick it gets after a while, so I figured it was time to try something new. My first impression is that I like the brush from PoshĂ© much better, and it’s much easier to apply. But I don’t feel that it dries as quickly as Seche Vite, but I don’t know if that was just with this polish. I will continue my trial to see what I think of it.
It was a cloudy winter’s day so there’s no sun in these photos, just a gloomy gray sky.
The edges look a little weird, I’d probably been there with a nail file again, it took a while for me to get the shape right after shortening my nails.
There was one downside to this polish, it did stain my nails a little. But since I don’t use a base coat I guess I can only blame myself.. =)
