It's been such a long time since I've done a manicure or nail polish post, I almost didn't remember how to get my hands in that distinctinve polish blogger "claw". But luckily for you all, I persevered! I've had really nice nails for the last few weeks and I'm taking full advantage with some of my favourite polishes! This weeks polish? Eat, Sleep, Polish in Princess Peach.
Now, let's get the bad news out of the way first.This polish is pretty much impossible to get these days. Eat, Sleep, Polish was a popular Canadian indie nail polish store that unfortunately stopped selling polish two years ago. Unless you can bribe a die-hard collector to sell their bottle, this one won't be very easy to find. So, because of this, there are no links or information about where you can buy it for yourself. I know, it's terrible, but enjoy the pics anyway!
Princess Peach is a beautiful rose-tinted holographic polish that is unusual in my collection because the pink is actually very delicate. Many of my other holos have much more vibrant base colours but this one is very soft and still contains the full holo (rainbow) spectrum that Christine/Simply Nailogical would approve of!
Eat, Sleep, Polish initially created this polish as a prototype and bottles were sent off to fans who bought mystery packs of unreleased polishes and this polish became SO POPULAR that it eventually came out in a full collection. Princess Peach was part of the Princess & Faeries collection and I knew I just couldn't resist it. I don't really have anything in my collection quite like it, I usually go for more striking bold colours and in contrast, this one is very ethereal and quite pretty.
The formula of the polish is fairly good. It applies super well and this look was achieved with three thin coats that all dried rather quickly. I used Essie's Grow Faster as a base and Seche Vite as my top coat. The only complaint I have about this colour is that regardless of what top coat I use, it tends to chip rather quickly. I imagine it's because the polish is quite thin, definitely thinner than some other holos that I own. So this mani really only lasts 2-3 days before major chipping occurs, especially if I have done a big load of dishes or washed my hair during that time.
Overall though, as I mentioned above, I don't really have anything that mildly resembles this polish, so despite the fragility of it, it's a keeper in my collection!
What are your thoughts on holographic polish? Would you wear this shade? Let me know!
