Anise Dangerous Lover

Today I have another Anise polish for you.  A brand that is new to most people, I first reviewed Agent Glam here.  I picked up my handful of Anise polishes at the counter at an Annie Sez retailer, but I've read that these are also popping up at DSWs as well.


To the polish!  Dangerous Lover is super quick drying (even between coats!) foil metallic in icy blue and flecked with sparse silver micro glitter.  I actually received a number of comments on this polish when I wore it, mostly from girls who were self proclaimed fans of gunmetal polishes.  Personally, I'm on the fence about this polish.  It's a nice color in the bottle, but I just felt it fell kinda blah on me.


This is three coats.  I've found that with all my Anises, three coats are necessary as they have thinner formulas that dry almost instantly and don't have a tremendous amount of saturation in my opinion.


I do see this color as the perfect polish to wear on a cold, icy night but otherwise, I'm not running to this polish anytime soon.  It's pretty, but I just didn't like the way the color washed out my skin when I wore it.  I think this would pop more on a darker or olive skinned girl...or at least someone who is not glow in the dark like me.


What do you ladies think?  Am I being too hard on this little guy?
