P is for POLISH, Part 2

As I promised you, this is the second part of my polishes for the letter P in the Alphabet Challenge.  If you haven't yet, you should see the first part, to know what I'm talking about.
So today I will show you another indie polish. This is Penny Pincher by the amazing Cynthia of Alter Ego.

I have a special fetish for all orange shades, and this is what caught my eye to begin with. But when I saw this polish on my nails... WOW! I love it so much!  This is a gorgeous copper-orange shimmer that has an amazing texture and beautiful glow.

When I got this bottle in the mail, Cynthia added a note about the proper use of this polish. She suggests that a few minutes before use, you will put the bottle upside down for a little while and then shake it well. I didn't really give much thought to this, and I placed the polish in my helmer. Then when I took it out to use it, I saw that all the glitter sank down and the base was above it. I was a bit worried and disappointed, but then the note fell on my feet and I read it again. I did as suggested and all my worries disappeared!

This polish applies as easy as any good creme or shimmer applies! All the sinking glitters came up and turned into a very consistent formula, rich in pigment and texture. I only had to use 2 easy coats that dried very quickly into somewhat of a matte finish. But it's so shimmery that you don't even notice it's matte. Just look at the pictures and see for yourself. There's NO top coat in any of the pictures.

Oh and I almost forgot to tell you - removing this polish is as easy as removing a creme polish. No need for foiling or any other harsh method. 4-5 strokes of a cotton pad with polish remover do the work perfectly!

You can get Penny Pincher in Cynthia's store. She offers international shipping in a very low price! Also, make sure you also follow her Facebook page for any update.

Ohhh beautiful! Orange looks absolutely fabulous on you! Which is great because your hair is "jinjin" right? :p 1 up for my memory!
The fact that it removes like a creme is great, for most of the times knowing the removal is going to be a pain in the butt makes me decide over another polish...
BTW, I have priviledged info so: happy holidays!

Oh! Hello there! Why have I never heard of Alter Ego until now? This shade is the perfect rusty penny orange. Hurray about the removal too. For me nail polish should be about the whole package (application, formula, #of coats, removal and colour, not JUST colour). Great swatch ;)

Oooh I love this!!! I have an orange fetish too!!! Soo awesome that it doesn't take foil method to take it off, that's always so discouraging!
