This is the first product I have used from Bad Apple Cosmetics – this was in the goody bag from the BbloggersXMas event that I went to a couple of weeks back.
This is what Bad Apple have to say about it:
Bad Apple 3D Arkanasas is one of the exclusive and limited edition shades developed by Bad Apple and one of their collection of nail varnishes. Bad Apple prides itself on their collection of unique and innovative shades of nail varnishes. The Bad Apple design was developed by Darren Woods who prides himself on being the sole designer of these exclusive colours. By drawing upon his extensive experience within the industry and from all the advice he has given to others about colours, he has finally been able to design and develop his own range of stunning nail varnishes. This Bad Apple range is based on 70s cars such as the TVR. Bad Apple nail varnishes are made from quality material and are designed to be used by the professionals. Bad Apple nail varnishes are no drip, no chip and high gloss. Bad Apple Cosmetics do not contain Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP or Parabens. Be the talk of the party – wear Bad Apple.
This costs £9.95 for 14ml – you can buy it here.
This is a gorgeous colour nail polish! Its a lovely mix of colours and I personally wouldn’t call it “3D” but it certainly is multi-tonal and very pretty. In some lights and angles it looks green, in others more of blue and in some cases its like a metallic teal!
It is fairly opaque, two coats gives a really lovely finish and colour. Its high shine and the brush allows for quite easy application. It dried quite quickly which is always a good thing!
Now, Bad Apple say this will not chip, however this is exactly what happened on the evening of the day I applied it – and then it got really bad the next day. Admittedly I didnt apply a top coat, but that was because I wanted to test the varnish and its claims! The chips I encountered were quite bad actually – so bad that I had to take the polish off.
A couple of days later I tried it again, the same thing happened! I encountered chips on the first day, this is where this polish let me down.
I think its a lovely shade, you get a really decent amount of polish and its easy to appply but in my opinion a top coat is a MUST of you want it to last even one day without chipping.
I do really love that is formulated without half of the nasty ingredients you normally get in polishes like formaldehyde or parabens, thats a big plus for me!
Here are the ingredients:
Do check out their site as they have some lovely colours on offer!
Thanks for reading!
P.S – this post contains a PR sample, however my reviews are always honest and my thoughts are my own You can trust me on that, but you cant trust me not to steal your blusher if I like it!
