I pretty much edit and design books as well as publications (like brochures and annual reports) for a living. So, the Chicago Manual of Style, a writing and publishing style guide, regularly hangs out on top of my desk. Sometimes it even acts as my best friend. So, when I put my recent nail polish purchase of Pastel Teal by Kleancolor Nail Laquer next to the book on my desk (see pic above)

APPLICATION & CONSISTENCY

This nail polish was quite thick and did not go on evenly. The brush is medium thick and packs quite a bit of polish on the brush without flooding the nail. Still, it took a bit of work to apply this polish.  The overall application was kinda gunky really and two coats really felt like three.

The polish is opaque in 2 (unavoidably thick) coats. As a result, it takes quite a while to dry. Still, the outcome is a beautiful glossy  colour. Don’t be deceived by the pictures however. It is not even at all. Still, the colour is equally striking in direct sunlight (above) or indirect sunlight (below).

LONGEVITY & REMOVAL

I absolutely love this nail polish colour, so it breaks my heart so say this. I think the thickness of the polish I purchased  caused it to chip much sooner than normal. I saw chips after just 2 days. It also started to crack soon  as well.

On the positive side, this polish removed without any issue at all. It did take a little extra cotton but there was no staining of the nail.

CONCLUSION

This wcolour is absolutely beautiful but I wouldn’t wear it folr more than a day or so since it’s going to chip in a couple of days anyway. For that reason, this polish gets 2.5 stars. Some Kleancolor polishes are great, but not this one.
