A stormy blue has stolen my heart. I thought I’d envied MAC’s Mean & Green, but this little polish can say “Move over, Butter London All Hail McQueen“! We’ve got our own holographic Filipino polish that steals the scene, but this just might be the first time it takes the limelight! Bobbie’s Premium Nail Creme in “Weng-Weng” might have been ignored for so long sitting plainly along the many shelves of cheap polishes, but not today, definitely, not today. Rock chicks, prepare to scream.
Who would’ve thought and who would believe that I’d actually find something that costs just under Php30.00 that can compete with runway worthy polishes in terms of sophisticated complexity? Mom said the shade was like a shimmery granite blue.
I like that it’s less neutral and more edgy than All Hail McQueen and that its holographic sparkle isn’t as much a secret as that of Estee Lauder’s Surreal Violet. There’s a Grand Canyon of a difference between a polish with chunky glitter, a polish with regular shimmer, and a polish with holographic shimmer. Holographic shimmer like that of this and All Hail McQueen is so much NEWER, more refined, and sophisticated to look at…and Bobbie’s “Weng-Weng” has a few tricks up its sleeve. When daylight or any direct light hits this polish…
…the holographic shimmer takes on a subtle rainbow tinge and the sparkles erupt in an array of different colors, similar to the effect of MAC’s Venomous Villains’ polish Mean & Green. The color goes on sheer but is beautifully opaque after three coats AND Bobbie’s no fail smooth, dreamy formula is so easy to apply without mistakes. Application is a win even for the most inexperienced of hands. Have a closer look!
Some of you might think “…but I’m not into blue polish…”. Believe me this stormy, muted slate/granite blue just might be a good first candidate to try if you want to step out with a bit of edge.
What do you think of this polish? Do you think I’ve somewhat fallen over the edge or do we have a mutual understanding on the subject? LOL!
