Dollish Polish Greased Lightning

I finally got a few Dollish Polishes when Dolly opened her shop last time. I am still waiting for one of my biggest lemmings - Expecto Patronium which my amazing polish sister got me but more on that when I get it. I am just on pins and needles for that package!

What I did get was the Mystery Shade, on this stock it was Greased Lightening. As in Grease, the film. How could I resist?? When it arrived it was even in it's own little organza bag - how cute is that!

Greased Lightening is a white, almost jelly based polish with small round blue and red glitters and larger blue and red hex glitters. These photo's are a little over-exposed and I couldn't capture the sparkle of the glitters but they do peek out of the polish rather well.

I really had 'old lady hands' when I took these photo's so I need to grab the hand cream and I wish I had taken more photo's when the sun wasn't so bright (who'd have ever thought I'd be able to say that!) but there doesn't seem to be that many swatches of this polish when I searched so here's my attempt. I don't quite think I did it justice, I like this polish but there's just something that's normal about it. I don't know, it didn't wow me. I like it but I don't love it if you know what I mean?

Anyway, for those interested I did my usual coat of OPI Nail Envy Maintenence, 3 coats of Greased Lightning which it did need for opacity and 1 layer of Cult Nails Wicked Fast which left it super smooth.

I wore this mani for 3 days with minimal wear so the formula was pretty good and it was easy to apply.

Do you ever feel a polish is just meh on you? Maybe I need a tan......

Here's what the bottle looks like:

Thanks so much for commenting. I took off the annoying verification thing so I thought I better add some moderation to avoid spam messages, you know what the internet is like!

Anyway, it's great to get comments and I'll verify them as soon as they get to me.
