I’m going through a bit of metallic polish phase the moment and I’ve fell in love with Essie Aruba Blue. It’s a really gorgeous metallic sapphire blue shade and according to the internet it is one of the polishes Emily Blunt’s character wore in The Devil Wears Prada. Like all Essie polishes, this a dream to paint, it’s not gloopy and unlike a lot of metallic polishes, it’s not streaky.
The silver shade is Soho Silver, it was one of the free nail polishes with December’s Glamour magazine. I’m a huge fan of Nails Inc polishes, Nails Inc was the first high end nail brand I ever used. However, I’m quite disappointed with this one. The colour is gorgeous and perfect for the festive season but there is something wrong with the formula. The consistency is quite thin and almost stringy, it doesn’t paint properly and when it dries, it bubbles up. Its very odd and unlike the rest of the Nails Inc. polishes so maybe it’s just mine or maybe there was a problem across the board.
What do think of these shades? Have you had problems with Soho Silver?
