Believe: Sound the Alarm

What? Jen is reviewing something that's not indie? Yes, indeed! I have loads of mainstream polishes, it's what my collection started with in 2008; way back when indies did not exist.

This mainstream polish from Believe is more modern though. I swatched it last year, within about week of having purchased it. I saw it in a nail group and had to have it! The reason I needed that shade is because it reminds me of a custom tailored suit my mother made for me. The fabric I chose for it was a huge floral with golds, yellows, oranges, and greens. The lining and skirt that she made to go with the coat were this bright shade of orange.

Although the polish may look more red on some devices, it is definitely orange. I'd call it a bright red-orange, kind of like the crayola. Shown below is two coats with topcoat and a photo of it with matte topcoat. The formula was very fluid, not streaky at all but I had to take care with loading the brush and application as it would easily flood near the skin.

After about four days of wear, it began chipping. This is about half the wear time I usually get from other polishes. I'm still super happy about being able to add the shade to my collection. It's a bit nostalgic, as I no longer have the suit my mom made. It's also great color for summer time which is just around the corner!
