What we say:
I absolutely love nail art and nail embellishments, so I was thrilled to put this edgy nail set to the test. I don’t, however, have much patience for these sorts of things, which is largely the reason I don’t sport nail art often. Luckily the process was quick and fuss-free, making it a pleasure rather than a task.
The nail polish looks and feels glossy when you apply it, and it is only once it is dry that the leather effect sets in. The texture is remarkable – not only does it look completely different to other nail colours, but it feels slightly rough too, just like real leather. It has a matte finish which I love and the texture absorbs light in such a way that it almost looks three-dimensional.
I applied a couple of the diamanté stick-ons to my ring fingers, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover that they lasted a number of days before falling off.
This definitely isn’t an “every-day” look but I loved the rock chic effect it had, making it perfect for a party or a concert.
