Hi everyone! Today’s manicure has actually been my manicure for the last 4 days! I just took my pictures this morning (day 4)! It has really held up well!
This polish was a very limited polish back in January’s Polish Pickup and I missed out on it. I kept watching destashes and hoping to find it. Finally someone posted in the Polish Pickup buy/sell/trade FB group to list any past PPU shades you were wanting. I guess they had quite a few they were wanting to destash. Well, I never heard from the original poster of that post, but someone else messaged me they had it and would sell it! My day finally came! If you are ever wanting a HTF polish, never give up hope! You never know when or how you may be able to get your hands on it!
O Pal! What A Gem! was described as, “a soft white crelly base filled with red to orange to green shifting unicorn pigment, silver galaxy holo, iridescent orange to green to yellow shifting micro glitter and rainbow iridescent shifting flakes”. I wrote down it was an off white base with opal flakies, scattered holo micro glitter and a strong pink shimmer. It really is like opals on your nails! Formula was really good. I used 3 coats plus topcoat. It’s nice and smooth with just one coat of topcoat. I love it and I’m so happy to finally have this one in my collection!
