Ok, so this is my very first textured polish* and boy, was it worth waiting for!
To start, it goes on very easily. I have no idea if that's the case with other texture polishes, but I was really pleased. The picture below is 2 coats, totally opaque!
It leaves you with a gritty brown, filled with flecks of gold and purple and a reddish tone in some light. Very pretty. The texture is actually tolerable, even for me. However, I do love my shine and smoothness........
.......so I added 3 (yep, 3, it's very textured lol) coats of Boots Stay Perfect Top Coat.
Oh yeah baby! It really brings out the gorgeous flecks of gold and purple, just stunning. I couldn't stop staring at my nails, it was like having bejewelled conkers on my fingers:)
Wow, the close up makes it look like burning embers. Drooooooooooooooool.
Swoon - I might have to buy the rest of the collection if this is anything to go by:)
* some of you may remember I bought the Barry M White Sequin polish, which was also textured. But I've been trying to wipe it from my mind, so as far as I'm concerned, Countess is my first texture polish lol:)
