review | urban decay nail color in addiction

urban decay addiction nail polish

Hi! Today I'm reviewing Addiction, the second of the three Urban Decay polishes I bought from Nordstrom Rack. I would describe this one as a green-gold - packed with yellow-gren and evergreen shimmers that shift to a chromey gold. Wonderful selection of descriptive words here, but I probably don't know what I'm talking about.

Learning to do closeups is an art that I haven't mastered yet.

PROS:
  • Like Vice, it was really easy to work with - great consistency, not too thick or too thin.
  • At first I was on the fence about it, but I actually really like the color! It has a slight gold shift, but depending on the lighting it can look more greenish or more goldish. I think is pretty unique.
CONS:
  • Even though I did two coats, three would be better for good measure. I can see some patchy areas if I hold my nails up to the light, though nobody really looks that closely anyway....
I actually like Addiction a lot more than I thought I would. I normally only use greens in nail art, but I can see myself wearing just this. It also reminds me a lot of Christmas tinsel decorations.

  1. I think that color is gorgeous!!! Too bad it needs 3 coats, that makes it take forever to dry!!

  3. Surprisingly it's pretty quick drying! By the time I'm done with my tenth nail, I can go back over on my first one right away. I probably should have noted that, haha.

  8. Haha, thank you! Almond shaped nails are actually a lot easier to maintain over round or square/squoval imo :) the more I look at it, the more I like it!

  9. Thank you! Almond shaped nails are one of the best decisions I've made, haha. The bottle drew me in at first, I love the skull on top.
