NOTD: Make Up Store Siw

Siw is the first Make Up Store polish I ever bought, I've picked up a couple more after painting this on. This is the best holo in my collection, there's no contest. It doesn't look like much in the bottle but I decided to give it a chance anyway. Painted it on, still nothing. Waited a few minutes until it was fully dried and was shocked. Super mega holo goodness! Like superhero holo! These pictures don't do it justice, and I guess the holo extraordinaire freaked my camera out so it didn't pick up much of the base colour, which is a icy blue.

This is three coats with base and top coat, application wasn't exactly anything to rave about. As you can see I still have some bald spots on my ring and pinky, the only trick to apply this is to have plenty of polish on the brush and work FAST. Never do more than 3 strokes on the nail then let it dry properly before next coat. I didn't have enough patience and got bald spots anyway, but thankfully you can't really see them in person cause of all the holoness going on. Another con is the price, at $16 a bottle I didnt't exactly go shopping crazy even though they had many colours I found pretty. Is it worth the price? For the holo's I'd say yes but I'm a real holo lover and I'm always on the look out for new ones. But for the rest of the collection I'd expect them to apply themselves for $16, you can probably find a much cheaper dupe or atleast a good enough substitute. I did pick up one creme to see what the formula is like, will it apply itself or not? I have yet to find out!

Ooh! Good to se some Makeup Store reviews. I discovered it in Oslo last summer and when I move there, I feel that I will be purchasing quite a few of their producst. I already have 2 of their eyeshadows which I love can't wait to sample the polish.
I remember there was a great range of colours in all their products.

It would be great to see some more reviews of this brand! This holo is gorgeous.

I have never heard of this brand before. I do not know if I will try it out since it is 16 dollars a bottle. The holo is pretty great thought!

Where do you get this stuff in the US? I was totally coveting the silver and the gold holo.

If House was online we'd have most definitely just streamed them because it'd be so fast to move through the episodes with no delivery delay. Sometimes we'd plough through 4 episodes a night.
