I was really curious to see this one in person. this shade was created by scrangie, a fellow blogger. scrangie’s intention was to create a polish that mimics a beetle’s wings.
scrangie is a redtoned purple base with a green iridescent shimmer. I know scrangie describes it as bluetoned, but you will see on my pics that it’s rather redtoned (to me). however the polish looks a bit different on my pics than on hers. and on my nails it looks like on my pictures. maybe she applied more than 2 coats, or maybe the formula is different (which I don’t think).
I really like this shade. it’s very unique and beautiful. but – I don’t like the formula. it’s very thin and blotchy. the first time I applied it, 2 days ago, I used my poshe quick drying tc. this is how it looked 2hrs later:
you see the shrinkage? even worse next morning:
as much as I like this color, it’s a no-go that I can’t use my fast drying tc on it, because being a mum of a 1 year old means, you really don’t have the time to wait some hours for your polish to get dry.
I’m not sure if the polish still is available, because it was part of a limited blogger edition.
