Tidal Wave is part of Sinful Colors’ new collection Pool Side Polish.
I love this color, but the formula is TERRIBLE. I know pastels are difficult to begin with, but this is probably one of the worst polishes I’ve ever owned.
It’s somehow both watery and goopy, so the polish moves all over the nail, but also sticks to the brush. It’s just a mess.
I thought this would be more of a creme formula, but it’s very sheer and requires at least 3 coats. I’m really disappointed that it wasn’t better, because the color really is very nice. Unfortunately, I can’t see myself wearing this very often.
This is two coats because I totally gave up once I realized the formula sucked. I have other similar colors, I didn’t feel like bothering with this one. I’m sure had I tried harder, it would have come out better, but I only work that hard with truly unique polishes. A plain pastel blue doesn’t call for any of that.
