Swatches & Review: Color Club Otherworldly

Hello lacquered lovelies!

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I got another polish from Color Club's Starry Temptress collection: Otherworldly. After wearing Ultra-Astral I was really excited for it and I wasn't the only one. My mom has been loving nail polish lately as well and agreed to let me take a picture of her nails when she wore Otherworldly.

Otherworldly is a medium blue and, like Ultra-Astral, the holographic glitter in this is not sparkly. The polish looks more turquoise in this picture than it actually is.

 Application wasn't too great on this. It was thick and goopy and there was a bit of dragging going on. This needed three coats for opacity and drying time was alright. This acted more like a matte than Ultra-Astral did, meaning it started drying before the nail was covered, making application a bit difficult.

I think it's a gorgeous colour and I'm still totally digging the non-sparkly glitter, but application was a bit of a pain. I'll be adding some polish thinner before I use this again and see if that helps.

I'd like to thank my lovely mom for lending me her nails and being excited that I'll post them on my blog. :D

Edit: My mom just showed me her nails and the polish has chipped and peeled off on almost every nail. This is a little over 24 hours after application, even with topcoat. Not sure what happened there, just letting you guys know!
