Super Professional 189 NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On December - 16 - 2012

I’m really sorry to do this to you but I’m about to feature a super-pretty polish that you can’t get anymore.  And when I say “sorry”, I mean, “not at all”.  You see, I would have featured this one earlier but I have a shoebox in my cupboard full of those naughty polish purchases that are usually made upon impulse and when the postman brings them to my door… I shove them in my shoebox until such a time that my shopping guilt has passed and I can go rummaging for treasures.

Well, I must have been very naughty because this one was bought back in February and I’ve only just pulled it out now.

Super Professional 189 NOTD

It’s an absolute stinker of a polish and I’m sure I’ve contracted finger-cancer seven times over since applying it, god knows what it’s got in it… you see, it was an eBay purchase from Hong Kong, a brand I’ve never heard of… and I’m not exagerrating when I say that it stinks.  It could clear a room faster than a fire alarm.

But look!  LOOK!  It’s so sparkly and pretty!

The above photo shows ONE coat over a purple creme, the top photo shows three coats over a bare nail.  The formula is pretty horrible to be fair, thick and gloopy but it does spread evenly with a bit of patience.  It’s a very slow drier too, almost like a gluey resin on your nails – I was worried that I had infact, picked up a gel polish that would never dry without curing!  But it is just a regular polish…. albeit in dire need of a quick-dry solution painted ontop.

I think I paid around £2.50 or something for the polish, if you’re keen it might pay dividends to save a search on ebay for something like “glitter 189 polish” or simillar, I think that was how it was listed.

Do you like it?

    It’s pretty, but I’m not tempted. Like you said, god knows what’s in it and if the formula’s that horrible, then I really couldn’t be bothered. I now have nearly 700 polishes, I’m sure I have something similar somewhere. Have you seen all the glittery gorgeousness Topshop have been coming out lately? I can’t go in there without picking up at least 2-3 polishes now. ♥♥♥

    Beautiful but a little scary as far as the formula is concerned.

  3. An absolutely beautiful polish, but the formula may not be something I want.

    So pretty! I always love looking at these wonderful, glittery coats, but never find myself purchasing them. I understand how it goes with the stank. I have a few vintage polishes and my goodness.. Once you open the bottle the room is empty. Haha.

    Wow! This TC is really Super XD
    A lil bit disappointed with the formula, though.
