Sometimes you buy a nail polish and it’s like…OOF, whyyyyyy?
China Glaze “Hex Boyfriend” called out to me from the clearance rack at Ulta, as I was standing in line to pay for my daughter’s haircut. $1.88 is a pretty low risk investment, but this polish wasn’t even worth that. Even though it is only from the Halloween 2020 Collection, it’s so thick that it was almost unusable. Adding OPI Thinner didn’t even help! I might have been better off sticking to a single coat, but it was so uneven, that I had to try to smooth it out.
Although not apparent at the time, I was left with peaks and valleys in my nails, like a relief map of the Rocky Mountains. This formula might have made a fantastic crackle polish!
From the way it looked in the bottle, I was expecting a dark, mysterious green…but on the nails, all I got was black. Flat black, like a theatre set. Boring.
This is two coats over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat. No top coat, except for Glisten & Glow Top Coat on my pinkies. Even glossy, it’s boring.
I could’ve gotten better results with a Sharpie.
