Hot Topic Duo: Double Trouble

Hey guys! I almost said happy hump day then I realized it was Thursday! I've been all messed up on days since having a couple of 3 day weekends haha.  So the other day I went to the mall to buy "grown up clothing" you know, something that is not jeans...I had to buy these clothes for something work related. It was so frustrating, I finally found some drab looking gray dress pants and a periwinkle sweater that will suffice, since I was so annoyed at the shopping trip I decided to stop into the Hot Topic store in the mall and see if they had anything new and exciting I needed to have. Well, they did! In addition to all of the regular polishes they had a bunch of mood polish YAY! (post on that coming up soon!) and a bunch of nail polish duo's. There were a few color options and I picked up 2, looks like if you want to buy these they are also on their website...they retail for $6.99 each.

The first of the polish duo's I tried out is Double Trouble which is a creamy medium grey on one end and a bright as hell neon pink sprinkled with holo glitter on other end. I really wasn't expecting much from this, but I ended up being pretty impressed. The grey polish went on amazing, and was a 1 coater! Even better than the grey is the neon pink, neon's are notorious for being a streaky nightmare to apply, which was not the case with this one! The pink was completely opaque and streak free after the 2nd coat! My only disappointment here was that the glitter in the pink didn't translate very well onto the nail, it got lost in the pink. Despite the glitter being pretty much non existent on the nail the pink sure ate topcoat like no one's business, 3 coats of Seche Vite and I could still feel texture! Overall, I love this little duo, what a great idea! I'm excited to try the other one I picked up!





Here is a picture of the brush for anyone who is wondering about it, the bristles were really long...I thought that would make it hard to use but it was not the case. The brush was pretty easy to control!
