Graffiti Subway Green

September 11th, 2010

Once upon a time Max Factor released some crackle polishes, named Nail Mosaics, and I tried the blue one. This was over 10 years ago so I have no memory of what more colors there were. Anyway, I do remember that this polish was crap! It was sheer and pretty flaky so it didn’t stay on very well. I probably only tried it once and then it went to rest in a shoebox. This is what the polish looks like now:

It’s all dryed up into big chunks, I saved the bottle because it looks quite cool, it’s better like this than on the nails =)

Anyway, when I heard about the new Isadora Graffiti polishes that used the same concept I was a little skeptic. But I picked up “Subway Green” because I wanted to try it out. And wow, these are sooo much better! It’s a thick polish and obviously dries quickly, so you have to be fast when you apply it. I applied it on top of China Glaze QT with no top coat:

Please excuse the mess and tipwear, I’d had QT on for over a week by this time. It dries a little matte, but I like that look. And I have to say I’m quite impressed that it doesn’t need a top coat in order to stay on!

The thumb doesn’t look quite as good as the others, I think I didn’t get enough polish on the second brush stroke.

I thought this would be just a plain creme color, but do you see the tiny shimmer in it? I have no idea if it’s just this color or if the other colors have it as well.
