I thought Swirl Nails looked really cool. Thought, as in, past tense. After trying it...eek!
To start, the drop of polish just dissolved.
Several drops later, it finally seemed to not dissolve.
Color two then wouldn't drip.
I shook some off and I'm not going to speak of where my mind went.
I dragged a toothpick through it, stuck my thumb in the water, and brought it up under the polish.
Those were cheap Essie polishes, so I tried it one more time with OPI.
They did drip better.
But it's so thick and gunky and matted when you bring your finger through it.
At that point, I waved my white flag, got out the polish remover, and painted my nails plain grey.
