review | urban decay nail color in vice

As promised, here's one of the Urban Decay polishes I said I would review! Something good must be happening, because I'm actually doing what I said I would do. Anyway! This color is called Vice, and it's an eggplant purple with red and blue micro shimmers.

Under direct sunlight, where the micro shimmers are more apparent. Kind of ugly photo especially with my pilly sleeve, it's something I have to work on I guess. Or get a macro lens, which I'm seriously considering for posts like this. Of course I'm sure it'll come in handy for other photos too... but it's probably mostly for nail polish close ups.

PROS:
  • It's sooooo pigmented and opaque, it's crazy. Seriously, this truly a one-coat polish.  I did two coats out of habit, but I left it at one coat on my ring finger. You can't even tell the difference!
  • Super easy to work with - no gloopiness, but it's not super thin that you'd need more than one or two coats. It's a nice consistency, I hope it won't change too much as I continue to use it!
  • The packaging, swoooon.
CONS:
  • The color itself isn't anything too special and I feel like I could find a similar color elsewhere. I wouldn't buy it for the full price at $15, but it's not bad for $5 at Nordstrom Rack.
  • There's a slight golden flecks in the bottle, but it's not noticeable on the nails - I think it would have been pretty if they were, but oh well.
Do you own this polish, or something similar? What are your thoughts?

  9. Thank you! I actually work in an environment where I have to wash my hands frequently, so they can get suuuuper dry around the nail area. I always lather on the hand cream after work and before bedtime, works like a charm!

  12. It is! It's kind of funny, cause I used to avoid shimmery polishes like the plague.

  13. OH MY GOSH this is so darn pretty....
    I agree, it may not be antyhing too special but it is still incredibly special and wonderful :)
    It is so irritating when you see beautiful specks and shimmers in the bottle but then when you have the polish on the nails you see NOTHING!!
    Really lovely polish though :)
