This is Neon Flux. Look how pretty it is. Shimmery, almost foil-like, opaque in one-coat.
And it smelled like it had died a century ago and went to nail polish Hell. Horrible. Worse than any Kleancolor, much, much worse. I could barely breathe.
I covered it up with Everybeauty Carnaval Mist, a beautiful Indie green shimmer polish with holo microglitter.
I love microglitter! I love holo! Can't get enough of it. Indie sellers see me coming a mile away.
After a few days, I must have forgotten the trauma of the Nanacoco, because I thought to try it again.
I started with another experiment, to see if Revlon Mistletoe and Sally Hansen In a Flurry were dupes.
Cousins, maybe, but not dupes. Mistletoe, on the thumb and ring finger, has a much different finish, smaller, duller glitters, and is a tad more green than In A Flurry, which leans teal.
From a distance, though.. I doubt the layman would notice the difference.
Not one to waste a mani, I decided to practice some dots, and thought maybe the Nanacoco polish wouldn't smell so badly if I was just using a *little* bit of it. The red is Mystic Rose, the lavender is Mystic.
Nothing mystical about the smell. *GAG*
How bad does a polish have to smell for you not to use it? Would you franken with it? Pour it out and use the bottle? Put it in a swap or sale with a disclaimer? Toss it in the trash and be done with it?
