Swatch: Chic Grainy Nail Polish in Siam

Good morning guys!! I am beginning to love nail polishes. For some weird reason, I do not want to accept it. Why? Another addiction would be a bit too much. Haha (Waley na ipon niyan!)

So before I start getting addicted to nail polishes, I am planning to buy a good nail polish base. Any suggestions?  I was looking for a blue nail polish but ended up buying this Chic Grainy Nail Polish in Siam. Looking at the shade on the bottle,  I can really compare it with Dorothy's ruby slipper (Wizard of Oz) but on a pinkish note. The glitters and shimmers look so beautiful on the bottle. I was really curious about the ''grainy" thing. I imagined  that this will give a beautiful grainy texture. Guess what? It did!!  The grainy matte effect made it appear that I applied glitters on my nails. Look at my swatches. I think I prefer to use this alone without any top coat.

My swatches do not justify the exquisiteness of this polish. And for 31.75 pesos? I cannot complain. Compared to other shimmery nail polishes (local) I own, the pigmentation  of Siam is really good. I tried one layer on my mom's nails and we were in awe. This swatch contains three layers. Two lawyers is ok but I wanted more texture so I added another layer. This dries quickly compared to my other local nail polish but it is really hard to take off. 
Next buy will definitely be a good nail polish base.

Godbless everyone.

Stay safe.

  1. wow it looks really cool and I'm seeing a lot of bloggers facinated with these... have to get a shade for me soon :)

  2. interesting color! do you think this would fit dark hands? would be nice to try this

    1. Hi MEj!! Yes.. I think so.. I think this shade is versatile enough to suit different skin shades.. :)

  3. Chic has a really great colour range. In fact, if I remember correctly, Chic was the first local to come out with a certain shade of yellow I was looking for over the summer. Kaso lang, mabilis mag-chip off ang Chic. On me, it starts to flake on day 3 of wearing it.

    1. HI Alexis so far okay naman yung grainy sa akin no chipping it is my second day.. let's see on the third day.. :)

  4. I've been looking for a review about this nail polish. Nag-aalangan kasi ako bumili ng grainy and I'm not a fan of glitter polish, pero ang ganda pala! Bagay sa skin tone mo.:) Would love to buy this product.

    BTW,if you have time,check my blog too.Madami ako nail designs, :) hehe. Thanks Ms. Dona!
