Elevation Polish - Mount Augustus (Australia Sunrise & Sunset Collection 2013)

Pink, it was love at first sight, yeah
Pink, when I turn out the light
Yeah pink, it's like red but not quite
And I think everything is going to be alright
No matter what we do tonight
(lyrics: Pink by Aerosmith)

It's Mount Augustus today: the weather here in The Netherlands is so dreary that I needed something warm and light! I was hard taking pictures in this drab and grey weather >I'm sorry<

Mount Augustus is a peach pink with electric violet shimmer and little gold flecks. The formula was a bit thick but quite workable. I used three coats to get this result.
It was perhaps a bit too much spring/summer but hey, everything is better then the eternal autumn we are celebrating here!

I really like these colours: the oranges with blue/violet shimmer BUT the formula almost always seems to disappoint (like with RBL NailsandNoms) and the wear time is very short (?). It's weird these polishes seem to become very hard when dry and very brittle as well.....perhaps the amount of shimmer makes the formula less strong or something...? I don't know what causes it, perhaps it is just me and my weird nail chemistry???
