And we're back to purple today! This is the second half of the Daily Hues New Years duo, Out With the Bold. This is described as a "light rustic purple with shimmer and linear holo." It's definitely a purple but has a strong silver shimmer and tone to it. Unfortunately, this ends up giving Out With the Bold a frosty finish, something not well loved by most in the world of nail polish. Confession: I actually think there are people out there who can make frosty polishes look good-- I am NOT one of these people. I did struggle with this polish a bit.
Out With the Bold was definitely a touch on the thick side, but due to the heavy shimmer it acts like a metallic and dries pretty quickly. I found it hard to eliminate the frosty streaks so after I applied two coats and was getting annoyed for having thought I could have dealt with this polish, I decided it was time to implement a fix-it strategy. So I grabbed a makeup sponge and sponged on a final layer to even out the streaks and frostiness and it worked!! The soft holo finish is still present but the streaks are gone and it looks much more appealing!
I think Out With the Bold is a pretty polish, buuuuut it ended up being a lot frostier than I wanted (and I did know there would be some frostiness when I bought it). I was able to salvage my manicure by sponging on the last layer and it doesn't look too bad, but I think that's the only thing that saved it. Perhaps if you have more patient polishing skills than I do, but I couldn't take it. It's a little bit of a bummer, though the finished product looks decent and the other half out the duo is good, so I guess it balances out in the end.
