Color: Clear base with blue, green, silver, and black micro glitters.
Finish: Glitter Top Coat – glitter in a clear base to be worn as a top coat.
Bottle / Brush: Round bottle – the brush and wand are the standard width and length. Easy to control and manipulate.
Opacity: Glitter topcoat – not designed for full opacity. HOWEVER, I do believe that this could achieve full opacity in 3-4 coats. Granted, it would be a lot harder to remove than having just one layer over undies.
Glitter Application: Medium – requires the dab method, but glitters are easy to extract and spread evenly.
Consistency: Thick – slightly thick, but is easily remedied with some polish thinner.
Overall Ease of Application: Easy – applies well without pooling, dragging, streaking, or balding. Spreads evenly and smoothly.
Stampability: Not designed for stamping.
Dry Time: Medium – dry to the touch with minimal smudging in 3-8 minutes.

Overall Thoughts: Witch's Brew is a fruit punch scented polish that is just simply to die for. It's also very fitting for any time of year without being pigeonholed to just one season. Here, I wore it over 2 coats of Barry M Indigo, which is the perfect match for Witch's Brew. The scent is perfect because it's faint enough to not drive you crazy but also strong enough that you know it's there. Again, you can purchase all of Model City Polish's fall collection unscented if you'd like. Application was super easy, despite being a little on the thicker side. I do wonder if the scented aspect makes the base a little thicker than normal. The thickness here, however, is not really a problem. I didn't even add thinner, and it applied easily with the dab method. It definitely needs the dab method, though, in order to get it even across the nail. Remember, this trio is available starting this Saturday, 8/31. All polishes come in scented or unscented, and those who purchase the trio will receive a bottle of Model City's cuticle oil in candy corn or unscented!
