When it comes to makeup, there's two products I fall really hard for. One of those is lipsticks.

Polish Me Silly Holy Shift, fullsize bottle.
The other is nail polish.
I used to spend time every week at home when I was in the states polishing my nails, I had at least 70 or so colors. It was a calming ritual for me, it made me feel complete. Like that "cherry on top" type thing. I cut down my collection to about 1/6th of the size when I moved to Finland, but my love of polish is still strong, even if I don't buy it as much here because of the small selection. (They finally got Sally Hansen in our remodeled Sokos last week. I almost cried.)
|Holy Shift in natural light.|
It applies very smoothly and easily, the first coat is thin and streaky, as with a lot of polishes, but by the second coat it easily evens out into a lovely glossy multichrome. I didn't experience any chipping, but I wear false nails so that may make a difference, as sometimes my nails fall off before the polish has time to chip. I also paired this with ORLY's Polishield, my one true topcoat love, so it's possible that extended wear time as well.
|Uggghhhhh that shift. Ugh. Beautiful.|
One thing that does need to be noted for international (non-US) customers is that Polish Me Silly has an explicit disclaimer (in all caps, so not easy to miss) that once a package leaves the country it is out of their hands, and they don't replace lost or damaged international orders. A small gamble, but not overly unreasonable in my opinion, since overseas packages are more expensive to replace, and personally all my mail losing issues seem to be with USPS and not Posti or Tulli anyway.
My odds worked out just fine, it arrived even faster than I expected, packaged in a million layers of bubble wrap and packing peanuts, safe and sound. I would rather have the option to test my luck rather than just be told they refuse to ship overseas at all, and I think they obviously did their best to ensure my package would arrive with the bottles in-tact and full of chrome-y goodness.

If you're looking for a wide selection of fun polishes, I'd really give them a try. Their Spring collection seems to involve a lot of crellies with neon glitters, they also recently released a bunch of multichrome flakies, and they have one of the largest selections of duo/multichromes I've seen. They also offer mini size bottles as an option, so you don't have to commit to just one big bottle either.
Next time I'll probably go through a Europe-based stockist instead (I'd just do Cesar's but their stock is super small), but I am already considering another haul from them. This polish is a stunner!
Where to buy: Directly from Polish Me Silly's etsy here, multichromes are $11.50 USD for a large bottle or $7.50 USD for a mini.
Also try INT stockists such as: Rainbow Connection (UK), Femme Fatale (AUS), or Hypnotic Polish (Netherlands), Pshiiit (France), Cesar's Shop (Finland)
