Hi loves! Another pretty from Polish Alcoholic today, a Dutch indie brand created by Sabrina who's also a blogger herself. This time I am showing Polish Alcoholic I Want To Believe which is part of the X-Files collection and available right now!
How about a confession to start with? I never watched a single episode of the X-Files.. I don't know, I'm not to keen on sci-fi nor horror so it never really appealed to me. Also, I was quite young when this show started (I was 5 when the first episode aired September 1993!). While I never seen any episode I do recognize the lettering Sabrina used on the labels as well as the names and vibe these polishes have. So let's take a look!
Polish Alcoholic I Want To Believe is a layering polish. The base is clear and it is filled with a blue shimmer that almost seems to glow and shifts color from a greenish turquoise to a super electric blue. On my nails I only saw the electric blue. I choose to layer this over something dark but not a flat black - I went with the Chanel Taboo alternative namely Kiko 497 Pearly Indian Violet. There already is a blue sparkle present in that shade, and layering this one on top of it.. fireworks!
I used 2 coats of I Want To Believe and it applies and spreads easy. The glitter is a bit gritty so a good topcoat is recommended. Before trying this combination it was actually layered over a purple creme but I experienced some severe bubbling.. luckily that wasn't the case in this experiment. The topcoat I used is Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat.
To try and capture that intens blue sparkle I also made a fun video on Instagram which you can check here.
So, what do you think of this combination? Yay or nay? Tell me in the comments!
