Bruised is just gorgeous in so many ways. Beautiful reddened deep plum color. Much darker than I expected from other swatches.
No pulls and very little streaking. You could get by with one coat IF you were in a hurry. I had excellent coverage with two light coats.
Awesome formula, crappy brush. This is only the second or so bad brush I've come along. It made application near the cuticles a nightmare. I need to figure out how to replace the brush.
If was very glossy with a top of CND Air Dry.
HOWEVER, the downside is that I had horrid chipping within 5 hours. ON. BOTH. HANDS.
Before I write it off, I will have to try again because my nails are going through the winter peelies. I want to figure out if that is causing the chipping, or if it was the two coats of Nail Envy I started with, or a severe dislike of Air Dry TC. ???
It does make me thankful that I don't like most of RBLs polish colors. I hope longevity is better next time around. Compared to my $3.00 China Glaze polishes, so far, not overly impressed.
