Island Girl Aloha Heat

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.
