The effect itself is really cool, and I do really like it. It dries to create a gritty texture which is also opaque with two coats. The effect is subtle enough to be wearable and stylish, but is also interesting and different. The finish is also matte, which is what you would expect, however I am tempted, if I'm honest, to apply a clear topcoat to seal the texture in and add a little glossiness.
Whilst I only bought this yesterday (for £3.99 from Boots) so therefore cannot comment on the lasting power, it feels durable on my nails. I don't think it will flake off easily, as the texture makes it feel strong. However if this proves wrong I will tell you :P For the price though I am definitely loving this nail varnish!
BTW this is my 50th post on this blog! :D yay! Thank you so much for reading (and following..? haha) it really does mean a lot xxx
