Devilish Polish - Lime Drop

I recently won a giveaway held by Kelly of Devilish Polish, and the prize was one of her custom polishes - I picked Lime Drop, because I'm a sucker for green, even if they're really iffy on me.

Lime Drop is a yellow-green shimmer with scattered holo glitter. I expected it to be streaky, but it shows zero brush strokes - the green is perfect. I'm undecided about the holo glitter - I'm not a massive fan of obvious glitter at the best of times, but I think I'll warm up to it when the weather gets warmer. I can imagine this being a great pedi colour this summer!

Lime Drop is no longer being sold, but there are three gorgeously intense shimmers being sold here for $5 a pop.

I like how this line bucks the glitter-heavy custom polish trend - maybe it's just me, but as much as I love looking at macros of mixes of glitter, I can't imagine being in the mood for the same one more than a handful of times.

Unfortunately it dries a little gritty (just the glitter, not the shimmer) and probably needs 2 coats of topcoat - I only used one thin coat because I was lazy but I didn't really mind. It also dries a bit slow, but I'm spoiled with super-quick drying polishes. One thing I love about custom polish is how responsive the formulators are to feedback - when I told Kelly, she almost immediately told me that she's already been investigating new suspension bases to solve these problems.

Glad you enjoyed. Sorry about all the flaws. I'm definitely workin on them. One day I will sell more glitter polishes but I will definitely have plain ones too. I'm not goin to forget about them lol probably in all my "collections" ill have a little of both. :) hope you try some more of my polishes in the future. Have a great day.
