Sparkling Water by Savina Swatches and Review

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! Today's the first week of school after finals, and my teachers are already piling up so much work ):
Anyway, I haven't been painting my nails too much lately, but I have LOTS of pictures that I took from before, and here is one of them: Sparkling Water by Savina.

2 Coats of Sparkling water and 2 Coats of topcoat

1 Coat of Sparkling water, Flash

1 Coat, without flash.
 As you probably noticed, this polish is gorgeous, but... Really gritty! The holo particles are very big and when the base color goes over them, it creates a lumpy gritty effect... I guess the "textured" look is very popular now, but hahaha not my thing :P The polish itself does have a bit of green sheen to it, and my camera didn't capture it very well so I tried to edit it...

2 Coats

2 Coats, with flash. Holo looks great huh!

And one final picture, I find that flash make the lumpiness look not so bad :P
So, texture aside, the lasting power on this one is very weak. It started chipping after like... 2 days, when normal polishes last a week on me. Maybe because it's a holo? Well, it's holo glitter, it's not holo. Lol idk :P
All in all, I like this color, but I dont LOVE it enough to wear it regularly.
What do you think?

  1. So pretty! I agree, gritty is not my thing either, but I wonder if top coat will sort that out

  2. I find lots of glitter if worn alone chip really easily... maybe it's the suspension base?
