Alter Ego Rebel Princess

Today's polish, Alter Ego Rebel Princess was another polish from last May's Nouveau Geek box, inspired by our favorite royal rebel, Princess Leia. When I was initially thinking of this polish, I though it was more of a neutral along the lines of yesterday's Darling Diva Rey, but in reality, Rebel Princess is a "a gold-toned tan polish with holographic shimmer and flashes of pink flecks." This is more colorful than a standard beige neutral, the beautiful bronze-like color of this polish works as an elegant neutral with just the right amount of sparkle-- definitely suitable for a proud, elegant, stubborn rebel princess we know and love.

This had a pretty good formula-- a little sheer but flowed on the nail nicely and wasn't too thick or too thin. It also dried super quickly to a semi-matte finish, so I was able to get my whole manicure done in about 20 minutes! Love that! I did use three coats to make sure it had the opacity I wanted, but application was a breeze!

I know I've said it several times before, but sparkly bronze gold polishes are a favorite of mine, so it shouldn't be a surprise that I like this one a lot! It's a nice twist on a neutral with just a little more pizzazz than you would expect. This is probably the standout polish from the Nouveau Geek box in terms of color and application!
