I really like this varnish, although it is part of the velvet goth collection it has that red and glitter Christmasy feel to it.
Sardonyx is definitely a shade you need two coats with. The first coat just doesn't give it that wow factor that a second coat gives it and although they are designed to be worn matte I can't wear any varnish without a topcoat, giving it that shiny/glossy finish and making the glitter sparkle that little bit more. Without the top coat there is a small textured feel but nothing compared to many textured varnishes I have used in the past.
- Great consistency
- Good brush
- Can be used without top coat
- Lovely shade
- Amazing bottle
- Great at Christmas
For me, this isn't a shade I'd wear on every nail. I wore it over Christmas on my ring finger with my false nails. I got so many compliments but it still isn't an 'every nail' shade for me.
