A Box, Indied - Dropping Balls
Dropping Balls is a royal blue jelly with medium light blue circles, big blue holographic circles, blue and aqua hexes and dots, small blue holograhpic glitters and blue stars. I used two coats for opacity, plus one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and one coat or Rica Glossy Glam for a smooth(er) and glossy finish.
I'm somewhat torn regarding this polish. On one hand, there's the look, obviously. It's gorgeous, blue, glittery, just absolutely my cup of tea. But not even a polish can live of looks alone. The downside is the formula/application. Dropping Balls is very thick, stringy, lumpy, which makes it very hard to apply evenly. Thin coats are almost impossible (that's why my middle finger looks like I was wearing badly done gel nails). While I love looking at Dropping Balls, I probably won't wear it a second time, application is too bad to be fun.
Wicked Polish are available at thier own shop and at Harlow & Co. Dropping Balls is exclusive to the january "A Box, Indied". The box with five polishes is available at Llarowe as a one month only box or as subscription (50$ per box).
