So..this is one of those good news bad news nail polishes. I got requests to swatch this (which I’m always more than happy to do!) except then I lost it in my house. As lame as this sounds…seriously its entirely possible & happens rather frequently. So, then I found it! Yay! Now onto the good news bad news of the actual polish.
Lilac Chantilly is a gorgeous metallic in the bottle. A blue toned lavender…which means right up my alley. Anything purple…I want. This has a spectacular mix of silver-y sheen. So what’s the issue? I don’t know if you can tell, but its crazy drying! This is 3 coats. I can see every ridge in my nail which isn’t what I’m wanting when I apply polish. I’ve had some issues with Sally Hansen metallics in the past & it seems to be a repetitive issue. The dryness.
So although that’s clearly the bad, here’s the good. I think I can salvage this. This is going to have to be a base color or go over 2 coats of seche vite for a smooth application, but I will save it. Its a color I like enough to take the time to make it work, which is rare honestly.
