Review: San San Nail Polish
Here's a review on San San Nail Polishes in Purple Topaz and Luxury Black
Price: Around P50.00+ each
Bought From: HBC, Metrowalk, Ortigas
Other Locations: Available in all HBC Stores
I was scouring HBC in Metrowalk Ortigas one time and I gravitated towards San San's nail polish stand because the color options are quite nice, not to mention the bottle size is too nice for its price. As you guys have predicted, I left the store along with two new polishes. :D
Purple Topaz is from their Holiday Collection. I don't know if this one is limited edition though but in any case, please check it out because it's such a nice color! Actually, I bought this because I thought it was a good dupe for my favorite Estee Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer shade, Bete Noire.
Finally, I got meself a black polish because most of my nail art tutorials require this color.

Purple Topaz is a semi- metallic purple shade with a bluish undertone and silver flecks. Unfortunately, it's a tad lighter than Bete Noire. Guess it's really hard to dupe that one for it's such a unique color! Nevertheless, Purple Topaz is a beautiful color.
Luxury Black is indeed luxurious! It's a rich, opaque black shade that dries off to a patent finish.
Both polishes yield medium coverage on the initial application, but are buildable. In my opinion, they could give more expensive brands a run for their money because the overall quality of the nail polishes is great: It's very fluid, applies smoothly, and it doesn't look and feel cheap at all! Drying time is so-so, but they remain chip- free for more than 4 days, depending on your activities. I really love it, and I hope San San comes out with more shade options!
