Sweet Color - #009

I don't think this polish has a name. I couldn't find one anywhere. I don't like it when polishes don't have names or even numbers. On the Born Pretty Store website this is listed as #009 but there's nothing on the bottle to confirm that number. I really like the bottle though. It has square edges so they fit nicely next to each other.

Sweet Color - #009

4 coats

This one was sheer, the photo above is 3-4 coats. I can't remember exactly how many coats and forgot to write it down. Edit: Turns out I did write it down, I found it written halfway though my notebook. This swatch is 4 coats. Probably because there's no room on my polish desk for my notepad at the moment. The formula was thick so with 3-4 coats it was slow to dry. I didn't wait for it to dry and applied Seche Vite. I wrapped my nails with both the Sweet Color polish and Seche Vite but I still got shrinkage. I'm talking about crazy shrinkage on all sides of my nails not just the tips! The surface of the polish was really wrinkled too! I took the above photo while my nails were still wet so that's why you can't see any of the wrinkly mess. I would suggest waiting for this one to dry completely before using a quick dry top coat.

  1. I've had my eye on this color. It's so pretty. I don't know how I feel about having to do 4 coats though.

    1. Yeah it's a bit of a bummer but still a nice colour. :)
