To get my groove back, I'm starting with a swatch and review of Guns and Roses by 3-free indie polish maker Jindie Nails.
Guns and Roses debuted in 2012 and I must say, I don't have anything else quite like in my humble collection! The name fits this polish perfectly! It's a chrome-metallic steel gray base with a subtle yet beautiful blue shimmer. The roses are comprised of hex- and round-shaped glitters in different shades of roses including hot pink and a light pink that looks like antique metal against the base.
Now to the formula! I love it! I sometimes have a hard time applying metallic polishes, but this one applies beautifully and its opaque after 2 easy coats. The glitters are also beautifully dispersed throughout the base. No need for fishing or turning the bottle upside down to redistribute. According to the maker, this polish was designed to be worn without a top coat. It works fine without, but shown below are 2 coats plus top coat (Seche Vite is my go-to top coat).
