I’m having a bizarre relationship with this nail polish from the Urban Decay Summer of Love nail set… When I first saw Hashbury, I was a little bit in awe. In the bottle, it looks ah-mazing. Cadbury purple with masses of micro-shimmer…
Then I swatched it on one nail and couldn’t have been more disappointed. It was watery, sheer and jelly-like. It still is two of those things. After 3 coats, I can get a pretty opaque finish, though it still looks more jelly than cream. Nothing wrong with a jelly, but if you’re anticipating a nice opaque purple shimmer…. the effect is lessened with a jelly-ish finish. I like it more than I did, but still not as much as that initial WOW factor.
Final verdict – Could have, should have been great but isn’t.
I know I’m being a tad harsh, it’s still a rather lovely purple… and although the formula is terribly thin, 3 coats isn’t bad and it has the most beautiful high gloss finish.
Anyway, I’m all up in the air about this shade… I can’t decide. What do you ladies think?
