Oh goodness. I have mixed feelings about this polish.
Mayfair Mews has been hanging around my house for quite a while. It was part of the nails inc. Cracker Collection I picked up from HauteLook the end of last year. I kind of dragged my feet on trying it simply because I wasn’t sure how I was going to like it. Bar glitter isn’t my favorite thing in a nail polish.
For my base I used essie Urban Jungle then I applied one coat of Mayfair Mews on top. The Mayfair Mews formula was a bit dry. The base is clear and the bar glitter is a matte black, a shiny royal purple and a silver holographic. I love the combination of colors but for some reason I just didn’t love this polish.
There is a macro shot under the jump and that close up I think Mayfair Mews is gorgeous. But, when I look at my nails at a normal distance I really don’t like the overall look (you can kind of see what I’m talking about in this picture). So I don’t know….I’m a bit torn. I think I may try using this more sparingly on the nail instead of over the entire nail.
