Manicure Monday #12

Couple of weeks ago, after seeing some fellow bloggers reviewing So Susan Lacquerlove Subscription boxes and as I am absolutely obsessed with nail polish I decided to order the box for myself. Lacquerlove box contains 4 So Susan nail polishes plus one extra make up product.
I love the idea, but I'm not sure if I would keep my subscription as for the price of £14.95 I can pick up some other great nail polishes but I shall see.
Anyway I have 4 new nail lacquers from So Susan which are 4-Free (free from toluene, DBP, formaldehyde & formaldehyde resin) so great for all of you who want to avoid nasty chemicals and definitely better for our nails.

The first nail polish I used was this gorgeous shade called Strawberry which for me is more of a raspberry colour but nevertheless still the same pretty.

While I love the shade, the formula of this nail polish is terrible, very watery and the coats are very sheer. I'm wearing here 5 (that's right, 5!) coats and the finish is still not fully opaque! That's crazy and really made me not want to use this shade again. I hope the other 3 polishes have different formula. Thankfully the nail polish dries up quickly so it wasn't the total nightmare to apply it. It has a very glossy finish but I still applied my top coat to speed up the drying time.
I have to say that with so many coats of the lacquer I was expecting my nails to chip the very next day, at the latest, but I still have it on three days later with very minimal chipping so it's a nice surprise.
I will be definitely trying the other 3 So Susan Nail Lacquers I have and will let you know how do they perform.

Have you tried So Susan nail lacquers? What's on your nails this week?

    1. It is very pretty colour! It's a shame the formula is so thin :(

  2. I have this colour and thought the same about the consistency, but I've since read about jelly polishes and I think this is one of those. Not a look I like particularly but some do!

    1. You're right about the jelly nail polishes but what's the point? I don't like it, I want my nail polish to be opaque in less than 5 coats! :)
