Hi guys! I have a feeling I'm going to have a very erratic posting schedule for the next few months, as shit got weird over here, lol. So sorry bout that! BUT I had to hop on here and show this polish, cause it is bonkers!
OPI's Push and Shove was the only polish from the Gwen Stefani collection I NEEDED, absolutely needed, so I went out yesterday and hunted it down (I did also pick up the black matte too).
Push and Shove is an awesome chrome with a mirror like finish. This makes me want to hunt down the Layla Chromes! Why didn't we get those here in the states?
Now, a couple things with the application. I honestly thought it would be horrible, but it really wasn't. I made sure to buff the ridges out of my nails first. I'm lucky that I don't have bad ridges, and I only buff the base of my nails (since my tips are already smooth from the previous time I buffed). And the polish comes with an itty bitty bottle of "Lay Down the Base" which is an odd base coat. It's a bit thick, dries fast and dries matte. Push and Shove is a true one coater (thought I added two). The first coat went down pretty even, but SUPER brushstrok-y. Within 5 minutes the brushstrokes disappeared. The second coat I added applied fine, but was super bubbly. I thought I had ruined the finish, but within 5 minutes the brushstrokes again disappeared, along with the bubbles. Hmm....weird. You're also not supposed to add topcoat...I kinda wonder what happens....will try before I take it off.
Anyway, gah! I can't help but absolutely LOVE this! BUT! Downside is instant tipwear! Next time I won't bother wrapping my tips.
Oh I love this so much! I don't want to take it off! OPI.....please make more of these! And make a bigger bottle of Lay Down the Base! (Anyone know how it works with finicky holo's?)
