Wax Finish: Ginger + Liz Royal Flush

Imagine finger tips dipped in wax the color of dried blood... wait, I don't have to. I have them!

Ginger + Liz - Royal Flush

Ginger + Liz - Royal Flush

I was truly hesitant about trying a wax finish. I've had such bad luck with Mattes that I wasn't sure that another formula that was meant to be worn without a top coat would actually be acceptable to me. I was surprise. Ginger + Liz did well here.

Color
I already told you... waxy dried blood. Awesome!

Application
Here's where things get a little tricky. This polish can be streaky, so you may need more than 2 coats if you see brush strokes. Unlike other finishes (and even some creams) this finish will show every mistake you make. So be really careful!

Wear
Fantastic! Over Qtica Nail Growth Stimulator I had no problems. I started to get chipping toward the end of day two, so this held on much longer than I thought it would.

Bottom Line
If you've been thinking about it, go for it! But make sure you buff your nails first to get the smoothest nail bed.
