My latest brand crush is Peripera, a Korean brand which is fairly inexpensive and has an impressive nail polish and lipstick selection, amongst other things!
Expect to see lots of Peripera on the blog as I slowly get through new products to review!
Now – Peripera has a scented nail polish range which has a cats butt on it (more info shortly) – the colours are gorgeous and pretty and they also have this cheaper range in plainer packaging which also has tons and tons of shades; metallics, brights, nudes, pastels etc.
Mine arrived and it was very dusty. I dislike dusty things. I don’t think it takes much effort to give things a wipe first, no?
Because I ordered 10 of the cat butt polishes, I only ordered one of these to try out – went for the brightest pink I could find, PK11 Cherry Pink:
This polish has 3 big selling points.
ONE TOUCH (ie. one coat)
ONE MINUTE (ie. drying time)
ONE WEEK (ie. durability)
I am lazy lazy lazy when it comes to painting my nails so this sounds perfect to me. I hate chipped polish and I hate waiting for it to dry – I don’t know about you but even when I think it is dry, the next day I find fabric marks on it! Like as if they were still a bit wet and were pressed against my duvet or something.
This is their promo picture which basically looks like exactly the same image in both photos, hurrrmmmm:
So I tested the polish – it is pretty damn good! It is very pigmented so it did just take 1 layer to get a good finish (another coat would make it super smooth I feel, but it is definitely wearable with 1 coat). It was touch dry after 1 minute but after 10-15 it was quite sturdy! I still wouldn’t pick my nose at that point but it was drier than other polishes I own.
The coverage is great (just 1 coat used in this swatch) but the finish isn’t as glossy as the visual implies:
Did it last 7 days?
Actually it did with tip wear though – no big chips at all, even though I am rubbish and rough with my hands, and I used a crap top and base coat! This does last well, and I am buying more of these because they are so quick and easy to use!
I bought this from eBay for £5 including shipping.
What do you think of this?
