Collection: Innisfree 2015 Fall/Winter, Tartan Check
I’ve been picking up Korean nail polishes here and there, since I’m new to those products and I love to try new brands. So far, I’ve reviewed Banila Co., Etude House, and Missha polishes on my blog, and I recently got in another from Innisfree.
Today, I’m reviewing a shade from Banila Co.‘s Tartan Check collection from earlier this year (probably a Fall/Winter collection).
The bottle is a pretty standard cylinder with a white cap. It contains a mere 6 mL, but the bottle feels deceptively larger.
Scotland Check (112) is pretty much the deepest vampy green you can get without totally feeling that it just looks black. I mean, in dim light, it does just look black, but in normal to bright light, you can definitely see that it’s a deep forest green cream.
A lovely surprise is that this vampy green is a one-coat wonder! Yes, that’s just a single, smoothly-applied coat in the swatch! That’s some nice pigmentation, folks.
The brush is a wider, flat brush with a squared off edge; I prefer a narrower brush or a wide paddle shape, but this brush works all right for me.
I am pretty pleased with this one, even though ideally I like a less blackened vampy green. Still, those who like an especially deep green will love this.
