Another awesome discontinued brand of polish. I remember Urban Decay well. Mostly because I was a teenager when their polish line was released and I couldn't afford it on my "$20-every-two-weeks" allowance. Once I did get a well-paying job,Urban Decay discontinues all of their nail polish. I was pretty disappointed to say the least.So imagine my surprise when I found this beauty on ebay for a reasonable price.The cumulative cost for 'X' ended up being less than the total cost of an OPI at the salon.Keep in mind that this ships from the UK,and it's no longer being made here.
The polish itself is a beauty.It's a deep mauve base with coppery-gold iridescence.I really love colours like this! It's work appropriate with a little dazzle.I'd go so far as to say it's a duochrome because it looks totally copper in the sun and mauve in the shade. Absolutely brilliant.
As for the formula? It showed no signs of age.It didn't separate,it wasn't gloppy or thick. The consistency was just right.My only criticism is the brush.There was one stray strand that had to be chopped, but that's a common problem and is easily fixed.
indoors no flash,3 coats
So do you have any old school lemmings? Personally, I still want UD Toxin, and the mythical polish that-shall not-be-named,but I'm pretty sure I'd have to sell an organ to be able to afford it.Or at the very least,have a lobotomy so I can justify spending the amounts they're asking for on Ebay.We'll see how that goes :P
Ginger-who thinks it's hilarious how my mother keeps insisting that I "throw some polish away" and then turns around and asks me if I have a colour that will match her dress/purse/shoes. This is why I don't throw them away mum! :P Nail polish neophytes crack me up!
