Nail polish is everything right now. Well, I really should say nail art since DIY nail art is really big right now, but I personally can’t do nail design to save my life so my main goal is to simply master a salon replica manicure and Scotch Naturals has really made that possible for me. So please forgive me for constantly name dropping this brand via nail reviews (I plan on featuring other brands soon) but I’ve really got this brand to thank for really flawless mani’s and plus I love their polish colors so sue me! But definitely check out this cutesy so Fall red polish because nothing beats a red nail.
Scotch Naturals Balmoral Punch is described as a “royal raspberry creme”. I would describe this nail polish as a deep raspberry fruit punch color initially, yet it dries a deep burgundy red color that appears a lot more brighter than it is in certain lighting. I’ve been wearing this color on my nails for a couple of weeks now because I can definitely see this being one of my fall favorites since it’s a red tone yet it’s not too bright coinciding with Fall’s deeper red and berry toned colors.
I was able to get nice and even opaque color coverage with just two coats of this polish and because of the consistency of all Scotch Naturals polishes it was super easy to work with and also dried insanely fast. I did not experience any uneven streakiness with this polish and it dries matte without the use of Scotch Naturals top coat to give you a nice and glossy finish. Also, the use of their base coat provides a nice surface for the polish to adhere to and for removal I use Scotch Naturals Soy Polish remover and I’ve found that it works best for removing their polish if you let it sit on the nails for at least five minutes and it practically just slides right off!
I typically get 5-6 days of wear on my fingernails with their polishes while exhibiting minor tip wear within 2-3 days.
