A pretty green polish review: Gala of London Shade 612

Gala of London is a brand I really like when it comes to nail polishes. They are super cheap, come in over 70 shades and are great for water marbling. They come in two different sizes, 7ml and 9 ml and the shade selection is different for the two different sizes.
Product name: Gala of London in Pearl 612
Product price: INR 65-90 at local cosmetic stores.
Product quantity: 9 ml.
Shelf life: Not mentioned.

My thoughts: The shade 612 is a lovely forest green with no discernible shimmer.. It has a cream finish and wears decently. I mainly use this color for water marbling but even worn on its own, it is definitely pretty.

Is it a shade I would wear to work? Probably not. It is not a staple shade to have in your collection if you do the regular mani. But if you are into nail art and funky colors, this is a great shade to have- easy to apply and great value for money.

Formula wise, Gala surprises me. They can compete with more famous budget polishes like those from Revlon, Colorbar or Maybelline while being much cheaper. The bottle reminds me of the regular Colorbar nail polish. The shade 612 has a nice consistency, self leveling and perfectly opaque in two coats.

The Good and Bad and the Aby:

The Good: 
1. Beautiful shade.
2. Super easy to apply, opaque in two coats
3. No chipping up to three days, minor tip wear from second day when worn without top coat

The Bad:
I don't really find any glaring con with this polish.

The Aby Rant*:
Personal rants? None, I adore this polish.

* Aby rant is my personal problems with the product, may not be a negative in general.

Overall verdict: It is a great addition to the collection of any nail art enthusiasts. It is such an easy polish to work with and the price tag is just right so that using it for nail art does not hurt the heart :D.
