Hey, Push and Shove was on sale at Sally Beauty for half off! And I almost bought it at Ulta for zero off! Bullet dodged 4 sho.
Do you remember that Maybelline Mirror Image nail polish set from the 90s? Or was it the early 2000s? Well, this is pretty much that.
Push and Shove is a reflective chrome polish that is sold with a mini base coat called Lay Down That Base that essentially smooths out the nail's surface since the polish highlights every little teeny tiny flaw on the nail. It works all right but I buffed my nails prior to application for full mirror-ocity and you can still see a bit of wonk on my ring and pinkie fingers. I tried, okay? Geez.
Shown below is one thin layer of Lay Down That Base (per instructions) with two coats of Push and Shove (also per instructions) without topcoat.
I really like this polish. It wears awfully (my tips are chipped and I just put it on five hours ago. To be fair, OPI does state that it's only a one-day kind of deal. Also to be fair I did a crap ton of dishes in those five hours, so I mean) but it looks real neat. The formula is nice and it's pretty fast drying -- note that immediately after application it looks kind of like a brushstrokey nightmare but the brushstrokes diminish once dry. Hooray!
Also it gives me robot fingers kind of! Anything that gives me robot fingers is all right in my book, you know?
