Hi everyone! I feel weird not posting for even a few days! I had to work on Thursday and am working again on Sunday and can't wear any nail polish so haven't had any on for a few days, it feels so weird! Anyway, I have more nail mail to show you today, yes more, I know! Lol. I was browsing Llarowe, as us polish fanatics do (much to the sadness of my bank account) and came across the 3 free brand Chick. I loved the name of the brand so had to delve further and was very impressed with what I saw! I decided to pick up 2 polishes and today I am going to show you one I was quite fascinated with, Hen House. I can wear this until Sunday morning so I am going to enjoy it while I can :P
I never wear dark colours and I don't know why because I think they are so elegant and stand out against my pale skin, so I thought I would take the plunge and buy one. Hen House is a luxurious, rich, deep, dark berry colour. You could say it's vampy, personally, I still don't understand that term for nail polishes but oh well, it is vampy too. Here are the swatches!
Artificial light and flash. I enhanced this one so you could see a little of the dark plum on the nail (ring finger has some on the edges :P) which showed through more with 1 coat however it needed 2 as it was a tad streaky but still very pigmented. The only downside of such a rich polish is that the flaws are virtually impossible to hide but the end result far outweighs this for me.
I wanted to show you the bottle. This is closer to the real colour than the one on my nails, it looks quite dark but there is a rich berry colour in there, see!? I like that it doesn't have a very distinct black base, I prefer warm colours in the base, not a harsh black.
Application of this polish was fabulous. Great sized brush and the formula was a dream to work with. This is 2 easy coats, no top coat. Polishes like this that work well are always a winner with me.
Chick's description of this polish is great - Your mother might call this color vampy, but your friends will call it the perfect go to color for the fall and winter. With one coat it is a deep berry, with two the effect is an even deeper darker berry. I would wear this colour all year round it is beautiful.
The end result is quite a high shine finish, especially without a top coat! Love the label too :)
I am glad I found Chick Nail Polish. Browsing Llarowe does have it's benefits lol. I can't wait to wear the other Chick polish I bought and if it's anything like Hen House, I know I won't be disappointed. This 3 free brand is fantastic and you really need to have a squiz at their range! You can buy them from Llarowe and their website and they retail for $8 but I believe they only ship to the U.S from there. Dark colours are growing on me now and after wearing this one I am going to go through a lot more! (I have Essie's "Little Brown Dress" waiting to be worn). Enjoy my photos, I find polishes that are hardest to capture on camera are usually the most beautiful in real life.
Weekend time, woohoo! Have a wonderful time,
