Remember those crazy glitter polishes from Chic that I played with?
This time, this local brand has released the Sandy Collection which includes five shades with a “grainy texture.”
These sparkly shades were inspired by precious gemstones and holiday getaways.
I had a lot of fun playing with these.
This is Shadow Crystal.
Shadow Crystal is a grayish silvery white with silver sparkle.
It appears a lot more gray in the bottle.
I didn’t have problems with the formula.
Shadow Crystal is sheer but buildable.
This is how it looked after two coats.
This is how it looked after three.
This is Peridot.
Peridot is a pretty green with silver sparkle.
I have to admit that I find the name distracting.
Because it reminds me too much of the other Peridot, which I love so much.
Still, I love this color.
I think it’s really pretty.
The formula was nice.
Two coats offer enough opacity.
But if you want intense color, go for three.
Peridot is one of my favorites from this collection.
This is Siam.
Chic describes this as a vibrant red.
This is one of those shades that Jill and I would argue about.
She’d say it’s a red but I’d insist it looks pink to me.
But pink or red, it doesn’t matter.
The point is it’s pretty.
Again, zero problems with the formula.
Two coats would be enough.
Use three for intense color.
This is Montana.
Montana is a deep blue with blue and silver sparkle.
If you love blues, you will love this.
Strangely, this blue was the sheerest of the five colors.
I chalk it up to its almost jelly consistency.
I used three coats.
And I’m not complaining because it’s pretty.
And finally, Amethyst.
This is my top pick from the collection.
Amethyst is a deep violet with silver and violet sparkle.
Seriously, how can anyone not love this?
It’s crazy pretty.
I have three million violets and purples but I still love this.
I used two coats.
What’s amazing about this is the price.
A bottle of Chic just costs ₱27.75. That’s roughly $0.65. Yes, sixty-five cents.
Crazy? Yes. Very.
These bottles were sent to me for review.
Chic’s Sandy Collection is available at department stores nationwide.
