So it's not quite Monday, but I really couldn't wait to share my new polish obsession. I don't think I have ever really been this obsessed with a nail polish color before. I've been wearing this color ever since I bought it in early December, so basically a whole month. This is pretty strange because usually I'm very fickle when it comes to my nails. I like to change the polish color nearly every week as well as change the shape and length of my nails.
Let me just explain why I love this color so much. First, I like that it's hard to describe: is it silver, gold, bronze, rose gold? It depends on the lighting! The color shape-shifts with the atmosphere. I also like that it has a metallic look, but also a glittery look--again, it's ambiguous. The name "alchemy" suits this color so perfectly because alchemists were trying to transform elements.
The only issue with this polish is that it lacks lasting power and it chips rather easily, but once paired with this fantastic top coat from Revlon it lasts chip free for days. Be sure to swatch this polish on your next visit to Sephora, you won't be disappointed.
