Ok, let's get to the wear test!
Items Used for Wear Test:
- 1 thin coat of Duri Rejuvacote
- 1 thin coat of Orly Bonder on top of the Duri
- 3 coats of Electric
- 1 coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top
As you can see, there's a little bit of tip wear, but nothing major. Still looking great despite doing some dishes and other house work.
Sadly, I had some weakness in my index and thumb nails which caused my polish to flake off. Then, I went crazy, as per my usual, and started picking... Yeah. So this is the result of that. What went from some small flakes off of my nail turned into half of my polish missing from those two nails. D'oh! As you can see from the other three nails, there's still only minimal tip wear and a tiny chip on my middle finger. I wonder what would have happened if my nails weren't so weak!
There you have it! So, what do you think about Alchemist Lacquers so far? Go give her some love!
