Colour Theory Flamingo Nail Polish - Review

Colour Theory's 'Flamingo'* nail polish is a stunning coral colour with pink (rather than orange) undertones.

With a creamy formula this is a very opaque polish, I used two coats however you could get away with one thick coat. It has a great formula, which is lovely and thick (without being difficult to work with) and dries to a high shine. It's a very bright polish that is nearly neon.Drying time was good despite the fact that I used thick coats. It was easy to apply however the brush is narrower and shorter than most other polishes so you do need to do a couple of strokes to distribute the polish evenly across your nail. You might assume that this means the polish is streaky but it isn't! I didn't see any sign of streaks and I'm definitely not the most careful person when it comes to nail polish. In regards to longevity this polish did really well, lasting around 3 days before I saw signs of wear (with a top coat). Even then, it was just a bit of wear at the tips and nothing drastic. It's worth noting that I don't look after my nails and I am very rough on my hands so I usually only get around 3 days of perfect wear with any nail polish.

My overall impression of this polish is that it is a really pretty colour, with a great formula (dries quickly and to a high-shine), lasts well and doesn't feel like a cheap polish despite only costing $4. The narrower and shorter brush could take some people a little while to get use to but nonetheless it applies easily. I can definitely see myself buying more Colour Theory nail polishes.

Made in Australia, Formaldehyde free and at the amazing price of $4 you can buy Colour Theory nail polishes at Amcal, Amcal Max and Guardian Pharmacies and online from Amcal and Guardian Pharmacies.
