I am usually not one to buy polish from clothing stores. I know they are always trying to temp you with them by the registers, but for some reason I feel like they most likely lack quality. I also don’t know what the company’s animal testing policies are, like with this polish. So if anyone is aware of that information about Urban, please let me know.
However, this polish caught my eye while shopping and I HAD to have it. (They had a lot of interesting colors, by the way.) It looks glorious in the bottle. The prettiest, ideal blurple ever. I’m really excited to share it with you guys. It was a little hard to photograph correctly, but I tried my best!
Bandeau killed an internal lemming I had. I’ve been looking for a polish in this exact color for a long time. I know it doesn’t seem that unique on paper; it’s a vibrant, and saturated blue-toned purple creme. But it’s absolutely beautiful. It has the perfect balance of blue and purple. There is something about this polish that is everything I’ve been looking for. THE one, I might say. This is what I wanted DL’s Call Me Irresponsible (reviewed here) to be. I’m so happily surprised by this polish.
The formula was a little fussy. It wasn’t the smoothest to apply; it was a bit streaky. But it did dry semi-matte, so I’m going to attribute the wonky formula to the neon pigments in the polish. But after applying a thicker second coat, it evened out and I got full coverage no problem. It also dried quickly.
