Piggy Polish: Poet-Tree with Base and Top coat Review


Piggy Polish Poet-Tree (2 coats)

Sorry it's so late, but I just got home from a beating a trivia tonight. It was brutal! Today I have the last polish from Piggy Polish, but it sounds like we got some good buzz going for the company. The colors and application by far surpassed my expectations. Up tonight is a pastel mint green polish called Poet-Tree. Someone mentioned that it has a vintage feel to it and I totally agree with that. I also received several compliments on this polish. Instead of the more bluish mint greens, this one is definitely green based which I really like. The application and formula was flawless and was completely opaque in 2 coats. 

I was also given bottles of their base coat (Under Toes base coat) and quick-dry top coat (Over the Top quick dry top coat). I just want to mention that I don't normally use base coats like this since I usually opt for treatments as base coats. The blue liquid dries clear and very quickly. I didn't see a huge difference in wear length, but it did seem to stop my nails from staining. On the other hand, I am extremely impressed with the top coat! Since I paint  my nails every day, I really need a quick dry topcoat so I can get things done (I can't wait all day for my nails to dry!). The top coat really dries quickly (dry to the touch in approximately 5 minutes) and I have no issues with the thickening like some see in Seche Vite. Also, I had no shrinkage on the nail. It probably reminds me the most of Poshe which I also really like. Actually, I think it may be a little bit shiner than Poshe top coat. Overall, I love this stuff and I need to get another backup bottle!
