Another nail polish post
Bobbi Brown recently launched Dessert Twilight collection. There are three nail polishes in this collection; Turquoise, Twilight and another one which only sold together in a set (I could not find the name). It’s exciting to see Bobbi Brown releasing a limited nail polish collection. I don’t know whether Bobbi Brown has released any nail polish in the past but since I am too curious about the quality of their nail polishes, I know I should get my hands on any of these colors
Initially I almost picked twilight because of it’s beautiful shimmer but I thought I have had few polishes that looks quite similar to twilight. I decided to get turquoise because it looks unique and unusual.
Firstly, I am going to write a review on the brush of this nail lacquer. Sorry if the picture of the brushes does not look appealing
As you can see, Bobbi Brown’s brushes is very thin. It’s quite similar to Chanel’s. However it’s shorter than Chanel. Bobbi Brown’s brush is not wide at all. It’s the same length as Essie but I feel that it’s thinner is size too. I prefer wider brushes like OPI’s or Ciate’s. It helps me to apply nail polish easier and faster. Whereas with Bobbi Brown’s brush, it would take 2-3 times of application of each nail (especially the thumbs and the middle finger). I had no problem with the handle; the length and the size is good for me to control the nail polishing process
Now I’d like to compare Turquoise with other blue nail polish I have in my stash.
Obviously none of them are dupe. At first I thought Turquoise would look similar to Dior Nirvana. Surprisingly, they look very different. China Glaze For Audrey is the lightest among them all and OPI Ski Teal We Drop has the darkest tone among the four.
In the pictures below, you can see the swatches of this nail polish. The texture of this nail polish is not fantastic, it’s a little bit thick to apply but still manageable. It took two coats to achieve full opacity. This nail polish lasts perfectly for 5 days with me. On the next day I start to see some chips on few of my nails (FYI I do wash dishes, type on keyboard everyday)
Turquoise is a unique shade to own. Especially this is from Bobbi Brown that has never released any nail polish collection before (correct me if I am wrong here). The formula is not the best among many brands out there; I did not have the best time of nail polishing process because its formula. However it’s not that streaky until it’s very frustrating to apply (I had that experience before with some other brands ) In conclusion, I think this is a nice to have product but definitely not a must have product.
I also has posted a review on one of Bobbi Brown’s lip gloss from Dessert Twilight Collection. You can read it here
