I have another Island Girl nail polish to show you! Today I have Aloha Heat, a muted neon green with subtle shimmer. When I picked this one at the store I didn't even notice the shimmer until I went outside. On the nail you can barely see it though. The formula is good, but weird because it has a gritty texture when you apply the first coat. It's not as noticeable after the second coat, but I've never seen a gritty nail polish until I used Island Girl. This one dries extremely fast, and also dries matte. I needed 3 coats to even everything out because I had issues applying it evenly (not sure if it was because of the grittiness or the fact that it dries so fast.) It also chipped within a day, but I always have that problem with matte nail polish, so I wasn't surprised. Anyway, the color is amazing! It really pops on the nail and since I have a slight tan it looks even brighter.
This is 1 coat of strengthening base coat, 3 coats of Aloha Heat, and 1 coat of quick dry top coat.
