Mani Monday: Nonie Creme Clacker
If you spied my Mani Monday post a couple weeks back, you'll know I picked up a new nail polish from a pretty display in Walgreens. This lovely little polish comes from Nonie Creme Colour Prevails, and I gotta say, the bottle design is what really sold me. The butterfly wing is so striking! If you read the other post, you'll know that the wing design was inspired by Alexander McQueen's 2001 runway spectacle, "VOSS." It's also designed to be easier to hold, which in turn should make application fluid.
I have to say, I was pleasantly pleased with the handling of the brush due to the butterfly wing! It felt natural to hold, and I was able to angle my hand comfortably to paint my nails. This polish in particular needed three light coats, and I really liked the color. I'm not a big fan of totally matte polishes, and "Clacker" has a teensy amount of shimmer, which keeps it from looking flat. I applied the polish on Wednesday afternoon, and by Sunday I'd sustained an unusual chip right in the middle of a pinky, but nothing super noticeable along the tips of my nails, so I was pretty happy with the staying quality.
Although no other polish colors really jumped out at my in terms of uniqueness, I definitely would like to grab another just out of curiosity. Plus, the pretty packaging will just look nice on my shelf!
