Morgan Taylor If The Slipper Fits

Press Sample 

The grand finale of the Cinderella Collaboration Collection from Morgan Taylor is If The Slipper Fits, a light blue polish with rainbow reflective glitter. In the bottle this stuff is pretty fantastic. On the nail however... well...

I used a base coat of piCture pOlish Revolution (a peel off base used to help in glitter removal), 3 coats of polish and finished with Digital Nails Ain't Nobody Got Time For That. The formula went ON smoothly but it was not fun to use. The glitter in this polish is quite coarse and was bumpy and lumpy in the polish. I thought maybe it was my base coat since I have only used Revolution a few times but I decided to swatch again using my normal Duri Rejuvacote and received the same reaction. Because I did use piCture pOlish Revolution, removal was easy but this will be a glitter that needs to be soaked off properly so you don't peel up the top layers of your nails. To compare, this polish reminded me of the China Glaze Crinkled Chrome polishes.

Here it is in the sun. Opaque, yes. Lumpy and bumpy? Yes. Would a thick gel like top coat smooth it out? Maybe? But I'm just not loving it.

Here in the shade, the glitter is not reflective at all and just looks awkward.

Finally in indirect light, you can see the glitter reflecting a bit but it's just not as pretty as I hoped. When I first saw the polish, I thought it reminded me of my junior year military ball dress (yes I was an Army JROTC nerd).
I had that dress custom made from a pattern back in the day. Well, 2001 but that seems like such a lifetime ago! I had a blue polish on from Maybelline I believe. Oh memories.

  3. I'm glad I didn't pick this one up because it does look disappointing on the nail. Bummer. It's a gorgeous shade in the bottle.

  4. I actually like the polish, but then, I really liked the Finger Paints mermaid polish Sailor's Lure, that is similarly bumpy to this and ChG Crinkled Chrome (which I did not care for).


    I also think the dress is pretty awesome! :D

  8. Oh wow, it really does match your dress. It's a cute polish! I wish it was a little more opaque. Too sheer for my taste. :)
