Seriously Hip gets my award for the most bizarre nail polish in my collection. In the bottle the different sizes of gold glitter suspended in the black jelly base settle into layers that look like the sort of geological strata you'd find in an alien landscape. On the nail the colour is amazing and almost reptilian, but also annoyingly lumpy and rough looking - I only did one coat of Seche Vite but it really needed two.
It's so long since I swatched this I can't remember much about its application - I think it was two coats and I don't think it gave me too many application problems. I do love it though, just because it's so unusual. The thickly packed gold glitter seems to not just be different sizes but also different shapes - I swear there's flakies in there. I can imagine this is the sort of polish you'll either love or hate - I think M.A.C. have outdone themselves with this one.
