**I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Alter Ego Nail Enamel**
I am super excited about this polish because it is my first ever Alter Ego polish. I did give a couple away last year but I didn't get to keep any. lol I received this polish straight from the maker, Cynthia. She has relaunched HER STORE ON ETSY and reformulated all of her polishes with a new, lighter base and I'm here to tell you how it is.All the Alter Ego's are named for occupations or actions so I got Rust Bucket Owner. It is a rust colored orange/red (which didn't come out correctly) with brown, black, and scattered holographic glitter. When I first opened it, I was so excited because it is so pretty. I really wish I could capture the color correctly so you can see how dead on the color is to actual rust.
I had to go outside to get a better color and I almost nailed it...lol. Nailed it! Anyway, see the brick wall in the background? See how close in color the polish is? Yeah. It's awesome! (:
So the formula was amazing by the way. I don't even know what I thought it was gonna be, but it wasn't this. It turned out to be the easiest jelly polish that I've ever used. I applied 3 coats for full opacity. Oh but wait, as if that amazingness weren't enough, it dries semi-matte! Yep! My only suggestion for this polish is to wait until each coat dries completely or else you will need extra, extra dry time. I didn't wait hardly any time between each coat and though I had absolutely no dragging or bald spots (thumbs up for Cynthia!), it did take a little while to dry. Jellies are squishy and this one is definitely that.
Thank you so much to Cynthia for gifting this polish to me. I really, really love it and I can't wait to try more polish from you. If any of you, my dear readers, would like to get any Alter Ego polish to add to your ever-growing stash, just visit HER ETSY STORE and purchase any of her amazing full size bottles for just $8.50. Have a wonderful evening and rest up for the upcoming week. See yaaaaaa!!!
