Last week I had the pleasure of attending a beautiful breakfast event hosted by Mary Kay at The Grounds Of Alexandria. We dined and discussed the up and coming product launches for this coming Autumn/Winter for Mary kay. One of the products was this marvellous nail polish called Mulberry Forrest. As soon as I saw this I knew I was going to love it.
Unfortunately I already had nail polish on at the event, otherwise I would have whipped this out ASAP. The colour speaks for itself - its pretty much the perfect shade for A/W in my opinion.
I was surprised to see how opaque this polish was - with one coat my nails were perfectly covered with no bald patches or streaks in sight. It also dries quite quickly as you only need one coat!
I was a little iffy about the brush wand at first as it seemed a little flimsy and a little too flexible, but it actually helps with the 'one-coat-needed' application. Within 2-3 strokes with the brush your nail is completely covered.
Mulberry Forrest has quite a glossy finish which is definitely my preferred finished. It was also able to last a full week with no chipping (with the help of Seche Vite Of course) and did not fade or get stained in any way.
Mary Kay Polishes retail for $16 which I don't think is that steep when comparing to the likes of OPI and Essie which is sold for about the same price here in Australia. If anything I find that the quality of Mary Kay polishes are very similar, if not better, than the other polishes I've tried previously. I cannot wait to try the other shade I received as well called Enchanted Mauve - I may also have to feature it in a NOTD post as well.
