Hit Polish A Certain Romance

The indie brand Hit Polish is sadly no longer. They officially closed on January 4th. The thing is, I have so many of their polishes that I haven't worn, so I hope you don't mind when I post them on here. Today I have a really pretty one that is very appropriate for Valentine's Day, even though I don't have any plans to celebrate the day, being single and all. Still, I love the idea of romance, and a polish that makes me think of it is even better. Here is Hit Polish A Certain Romance!

A Certain Romance was one of their new polishes but was very limited edition with just a handful of bottles being sold. It's a very light and creamy white crelly, with glitters in various shapes and size. There's pink micro-glitter, pink hexagons, pink squares, black shards, black squares, some of which look like rectangles, black stars, silver stars, silver shards, and last but not least, silver stars. Whew! All of it works together beautifully though and makes for one unique polish. The colors in it kind of remind me of a 50s poodle skirt outfit, especially because of the black and pink.

The formula was really great and much better than I anticipated. The base was a little thick but in a good way. It allowed me to have great coverage in just two coats, though a third probably wouldn't have hurt but I didn't find it all that necessary. It had a bit of a bumpy surface when dried, so I topped everything off with a layer of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat.

I had such a hard time capturing this color in the shade. This is the only one that turned out somewhat decent.

I'm glad I was able to get my hands on A Certain Romance before the shop closed down. It's really beautiful and even though I'm a huge fan of their glitter toppers, I love that this is different. It's a nice change.

On a side note, yesterday I spent a little time organizing my polish area in my room and damn, I have way too many untrieds! It's kind of sad how many I have yet to give attention to. I really need to go back through them and see if there are any I can live without. Maybe I'll have a blog sale in the near future.

  1. This is so delicate and pretty. The black squares add some edge to it. I'm sad about Hit Polish closing too, especially after just discovering them. I'm looking forward to seeing more of them so don't hesitate to swatch them for the blog!
