Graffiti Nails Tuscany

This is the second of some polishes I was sent for review by Graffiti Nails.

Tuscany is a gorgeous shade of orange. I don’t have anything like this already. It’s on the yellow side of orange and has a burnt quality about it. I did a Google image search for “Tuscan orange” and the colours that came up are strikingly similar.  I didn’t realise it was the name of a shade already – so I’ve learned something new today!

I had a bit of trouble with this polish. It’s very sheer – more of a crelly than a cream – and needed 3 coats, and could perhaps have done with 4 coats. But it didn’t dry very quickly. Others who have reviewed Graffiti Nails’ polishes have praised them for how quick-drying they are, but for me, this one just took an age. I don’t know if it’s just me, therefore. I’ve had another brand that didn’t dry on me, eye Candy London, and I know some people who have had trouble with Models Own HyperGels. So I am putting it down to my nail chemistry.

They also smell very strong until they have dried, so the wait is an unpleasant one for a bit. To help with the drying, I top coated it. But I didn’t get around to taking photos until the next day, by which time it appeared that my top coat had shrunk the top layers of polish. I’ve not had this happen before with HK Girl, only with Seche Vite, so I think it must have reacted with one of the polish’s ingredients.

So, I painted it all over again and used 4 coats and a different top coat the second time around.

The colour is gorgeous, though.
