Claire's Poison Apple


Claire's Poison Apple, 3 thin coats with 1 coat of Nailene TC layered over a golden chrome polish. I feel a little disappointed with this polish, even though it is very pretty, I wish it did not have the boring base colour it does. In some lighting it looks like a run-of-the-mill mulberry/red shade. In many lighting conditions the golden/copper duo-chrome flakes look fabulous.
 

This polish; Claire`s Candy Apple, as well as Claire`s Venomous dried very fast. The effect in both of these polish's is very pretty & I recommend layering them over an opaque base.




 For underware I chose Sally hansen Chrome in Gilded Pearl Chrome. This had no effect at all on the final colour and finish of Claire's Candy Apple, I just wanted to reduce the appearance of bare spots and the amount of coats of Candy Apple that I would use. The photo below is 2 coats with NO TC.


Here is Claire`s Candy Apple, layered over Sally Hansen Gilded Pearl Chrome. My thumb is 1 thick coat, the rest of my nails are 1 coat each of varying thickness.... the only photo I have to show the transparency of Poison Apple.

very pretty! isn't it crazy how one polish can look completely different depending on the light? makes for interesting nails, though!

I like it. There's a hint of Bad Fairy in there.

Gorgeous polish!!!! _Behind MAC, it reminds me an old Chanel: Palpitant.
Too bad it's so sheer.

I just bought this polish today, couldnt find the other two though. I think this is such a pretty color and since I couldn't get my hands on MAC Bad Fairy I figured this would suffice.

Great Pics!
