Hello! I feel a little fail for not posting for a week lol. I'd like to give some good excuse like life got in the way or whatever but the reality is, I was being lazy :P Well, also the polish I have for you... I did not feel enthusiastic about posting at all. I hated it when I put it on, I didn't even want to take pictures of it which I had to wait till the next day to do, then I didn't feel like going through the pictures or writing a post about it. This is possibly the first polish that I have definitively said DO NOT WANT. Oddly enough it stayed on for almost 3 days. Please tell me I'm not the only crazy one who that happens to? I disliked it so much I didn't even want to deal with taking it off. Yeah, it makes no sense to me either lol!

So, the concept of the Del Sol polishes is cool. I picked up two of them on a cruise in December, however I bought them on the ship and they only had a few colors, otherwise I don't think I would have even bought this in the first place. Electrick is a sheer, frosty, brushstrokey mess. The blue base color is so unflattering on me and the seafoam green it turns to in sunlight is not much better. At least it wasn't difficult to apply, if you can ignore the brush strokes and the four coats it took to almost reach opacity. Which is probably the nicest thing I'll say about this lol. Anyways, I put the pictures side by side so you can see the shade color and the sun color together.

Does anyone else have any Del Sols that they like? Have any of you tried this one and liked it? I'm leary to try the other one I've got now though I'm sure I'll eventually suck it up and give it a go hahah :P

Thanks for looking!
Meeka :)


  1. I randomly found a Del Sol today that I never knew I had. It's called Vanity. I haven't tried it yet...but I'm not sure if I should? It's probably very old, haha!

  2. I would give it a try! I'm not really convinced that polish "goes bad". I've seen swatches online of other Del Sol polishes that looked great :)

  3. I have 2 Del Sol and both are a bit disappointing because the color on the bottle is so much stronger than what you can get on the nail. I just found that you can layer it over 1 coat of another polish to help the opacity. The brands I've had success with are China Glaze and Fingerpaints. Hope this helps!
