Pretty & Polished - Antiqued Review

I did a thing, actually I've been doing a thing. I've amassed quite a few nail polishes over the past couple of months that I've purchased and haven't swatched or published for reviews, but that are absolutely amazing and deserve their own posts. I'm going to start posting these regularly so keep an eye out, and I'll mix up the brands so it's not the same thing every day! 

First up, Antiqued by Pretty & Polished. This polish isn't currently available but I'm guessing there's always a chance for a revival! Antiqued is from the Rustic Collection back from this past Spring but was just semi-recently taken out of the shop.


Antiqued is a white crelly with a scattering of small and micro black flakies.

This is such a subtly fancy polish, I feel like.


Look at the delicateness of the white base with the black flecks popping through like an old movie!


Matte nail macro.


Ahh, matte. I love matte top coats on polishes like this, it's velvet! 


Antiqued is a slightly thinner polish so you will need to use three coats for opacity. It dries down to a glossy finish so top coat for your own preference! Even with the amount of flecks, there wasn't any texture that I noticed and it smoothed out so easily when being applied.

Do you own Antiqued? Let me know in the comments!
