Swatches & Review - Polish Alcoholic Mulder

Hi loves! Woops, I'm posting a bit late aren't I..? I forgot to prep this post and since today was some fabulous weather, I couldn't bring myself to sit down and spend those sunny hours inside. Nope, instead I sat down in our garden and got a bad sunburn.. way to go silly me! 

I want to show you the third and last shade I received from Sabrina, namely Polish Alcoholic Mulder. Just as I Want To Believe this one is part of the X-Files collection. Unfortunately I had some issues capturing the shade so I want to warn you these pictures are not color accurate! For the right purple shade please check the listing in Sabrina's Etsy shop.

Polish Alcoholic Mulder is a warm purple shade packed with a purple and blue shimmer and silver shreds. My picture somehow show it more as a blue based blurple while it's actually a much warmer shade and more purple rather than blue.

I used 3 thin coats in my swatch and while the formula itself is easy to manage, I must admit I'm not the biggest fan of the silver shreds. They didn't behave as bad as I feared, but on my ringfinger I had 2 pieces sticking up that I could not get under control. Luckily the other pieces did play nice!

My verdict: a gorgeous shade, but I kinda wish it came without the silver shreds. When behaving well they do look pretty though!

My basecoat is Duri Rejuvacote and I topped it with Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat.

What do you think of this shade? And how do you feel about shredded glitter? Tell me in the comments!

  1. The color looks really nice, but overall I am not a fan of shredded glitter. I just cannot get it to lie flat on the nail. Some pieces always stick up which is really annoying, but maybe that is just my application.

  2. This is a gorgeous color, but I agree about the shredded glitter.

  3. This is flippin' stunning!!

  4. I had some issues as well :-( too bad!

  5. A polish that causes danger while driving, because you'll be staring at your nails all the time ;-)!
