p2 - jolly silver (Happy New Nails)

Last week, I went to the city to do some Christmas shopping in my lunch break and even though I put myself on a no-buy-week (except for Christmas), I ended up buying 2 polishes....

One of them, I want to show today. p2, dm store's in-house cosmetics brand, recently released a new limited edition called "Happy New Nails" that's consisting of three polishes and some other stuff like hand cream. I bought two of those polishes, the silver and the red one. The third is a gold colored polish, but the color gave me the impression of not going too well with my skintone, like most golds. I was originally drawn to the small display, because of the silver polish. I was actually wearing silver nails that day but I was disappointed by the silver polish I'd used. It was sheer... and slow drying and showed very obvious brush strokes. Boo. So when I saw the new LE, I decided to get a new silver polish. And I'm glad I decided that way!

jolly silver is quite opaque with its first coat, but I used two anyway. It has tiny tiny silver glitter that make it really sparkly. Very pretty. It was a bit slow drying though and you have to be careful when applying the second coat. I experienced some cuticle drag, but managed to smooth is out. You can see some brush strokes here, but it is actually possible to apply it without any brush strokes. My right hand(!) was almost perfect.

I think I found my new go-to silver polish. I'll try how it works with stamping soon. It would be amazing if it was still as opaque when stamped! ♥

Last picture was taken in sunlight! You have to be really lucky in Germany these days to catch a ray of sunlight, but this morning I was lucky enough, haha. Well, it's the third day of wear, so please excuse the tip wear. I did a day of marathon cooking yesterday and I'm actually surprised how well they still look after all that work. The pink polish is the second from that LE I bought. It's called cheerful red, but is more of a pink. I fell in love with this one at first sight too. I'll post about it seperately.

All three polishes are available in dm stores right now, contain 8ml and cost 2,25€. More expensive than the standard line, but it's still okay.

What do you think? What's your favorite silver polish?
