Necessary Evil Polish - I Am Starstuff Review | April 2018 Polish Pickup


This is the second of three Polish Pickup offerings I have for the month, this one by a still newer-to-me brand! This is Necessary Evil Polish's first time in Polish Pickup so don't miss out on it! It has a cap of 85 and will be $11.00.

Don't forget to head over to My Lacquer Cabinet to check out all of the polishes and products available for PPU April.

Polish Pickup is a monthly polish shopping extravaganza! Each month, there's a new theme (voted on by group members) and makers individually decide if they want to participate and create their own polish to meet the theme. This month, the store is open from 4/6-4/9, and you can buy as many or as few polishes as you want. The shipping is $3.00 total, no matter how many polishes you get, and they combine shipping if you make more than one order during the weekend!

Glossy nail macro.


The base of this polish is amazing, it's one of those shades that you didn't realize you didn't have until now! It's the perfect mix of purple and pink, and it has all the goodies added in as well! 


The application was amazing, this is a freaking one-coater! It did have a slight stink to it, but I'm starting to think that's just me because everyone I've asked recently about smells doesn't smell what I do. Thanks, allergy medicine.


Matte nail macro.


I do like this matte because of all of the flakies, but I think a glossy top coat really makes this polish pop!


Formula: Very good, a little stinky.
Coats for Opacity: One coat.
Ease of Dry: Quick dry.
Texture: None noted.
Finish: Satin.
Removal: Normal removal, no issues noted.
Top Coat Used: Glossy/Matte.
