Summer Ma(Y)gic #13: REVIEW: Faces High Shine nail enamel in 41 Fashionista

So so many product lined up for review. Its just crazy!! Today's review is my second FACES nail enamel. I didn't have even one and suddenly in two weeks I have two. One that I bought from a blog sale (click here to read all about it) and one that I won in a giveaway (click here to see what else I won).

I already reviewed the one I bought. Click here to read about it.

So when I entered for the giveaway it was mainly because of this nail enamel and the eyeshadow. I didn't expect to win it and so I bought one in a blog sale and then I wondered if both had ended up being the same
But after it came home I was so happy that they weren't the same. At the end of review, I will have pictures showing the difference in the two shades.

About the product:
The first thing I have to mention is the staying power. Oh my god. There was no chipping or wear at the tip till about the 8th day. I have not had a nail polish that has lasted for so long. Ever. Maybe even Coral Pink would have lasted for so long but I removed it after the 4th day.
Even the shine lasts for a long time. I guess it is true to its name of high shine. You will see how shiny it is in the pictures.
Fashionista is more of a pastel pink with peach undertones.
It goes on smoothly if you do it slowly with patience. Just like Coral pink it takes a bit of work to not get a streaky finish. But once it dries it looks great!!
The formula isn't runny. You definitely need two coats to get a true colour.
It takes time to dry. So if you are in a rush and apply the second quickly, it will be streaky and patchy.
Regular packaging. Nothing fancy about it. I just feel like the brush is longer. I dunno maybe it just looks like that in pictures.
I think it is a very summery colour and very girly and flirty. It would look great for brunches, date night, or shopping with the girls.
I looks kind of bright here na

Just look at the shine!!! 

What I like about this product:

  • Stays long. really long.
  • Continues to have a shine for a long time.
  • It isn't the cheapest nail enamel but it is affordable and you do get 9ml of it.
  • Lovely feminine colour.

What I don't like about this product:

  • Can be a bit streaky as its formula takes time to dry. 

This is a picture taken after 8 days. Barely any tip wear.

Coral pink has been reviewed previously.

Have you tried this shade? Do you know of any other brands with a shade like this?
