I wore Disco Inferno over Revlon's Purple Pleasures (from the Dark Pleasures line). Disco Inferno is made up of red, pink, mint and blue hexagons and circle glitter pieces suspended in a clear top coat. To me, this combination clashes quite horribly- the red looks out of place amongst the cooler colors which seem to dominate. The polish was quite thick, yet not many glitter pieces dispense upon application- it took me at least 5 or more coats to achieve this level of glitter (note I do have tiny nails)! The glitter itself seems well adhered to my nails and I don't notice any bending or warping of the bits.
Over this dark (almost black) polish, I can't quite seem to decide whether I like or dislike Disco Inferno. From afar it is quite eye catching and gives a disco space party sort of feel. However when I look at my nails up close I can't help but think of a haphazard confetti party that failed miserably as the clashing glitter pieces stand out awkwardly against the dark background.
|No base color applied on my thumb with 3-4 coats of Disco Inferno. See that it is still quite sparse.|
Overall, I can't wait to try out this polish with some bright blue, purple or pink base coats. I love the uniqueness, price and eye catching effect of this polish. The downsides are the lack of versatility and the sparseness of the glitter particles- not a fan of having to layer 5 coats of nail polish over yet another base coat.
