Polish Me Silly Mystery

Hi there!

First time with this indie brand for me! There was a big hype about Polish Me Silly new mega multichromes over in Facebook groups and I gave up and ordered a couple. This is Polish Me Silly Mystery, two coats.

Ciao a tutti!

Prima volta con questo marchio indie. C’era un gran parlare dei nuovi mega multichromes di Polish Me Silly su Facebook e così ho ceduto e ne ho ordinati due. Questo è Polish Me Silly Mystery, due passate.

The big thing about Polish Me Silly mega multichromes was that they are meant to be super opaque on their own without needing an undie. Well guys, to be honest I was hugely underwhelmed by Mystery. It’s just the usual green to purple duochrome and the colour is not that deep and bold to be called special.

Just out of curiosity I removed it from one nail, polished it with a dark blue undie, and used one single coat of Mystery on top. That makes a total of two coats anyway. I think you can easily tell what nail I re-did with an undie. And sorry not sorry I highly prefer it that way.

La grande particolarità dei mega multichrome di Polish Me Silly è che dovrebbero essere super coprenti da soli, senza bisogno di mutanda. Che dire? Sono rimasta molto delusa da Mystery. E’ il solito duochrome verde-viola senza infamia e senza lode, e non ha una coprenza speciale che lo differenzi dagli altri secondo me.

Per pura curiosità ho tolto lo smalto da un’unghia, messo una base blu, e rimesso una sola passata di Mystery sopra il blu. Quindi un totale di due passate cmq. Direi che lo vedete da soli quale unghia è mutandata, giusto? E mi spiace dirlo ma preferisco quella.

What can I say? I am quite sad Mystery didn’t live up to my expectations because indies are not cheap, and they actually get super expensive if you add international shipping on top of their price.

Do you think my expectations were way too high? Do you have any of the Polish Me Silly new mega multichromes? I’d love to read your experience with them!

Che dire? Mi scoccia molto che Mystery non sia stato all’altezza delle mie aspettative. Gli smalti indie sono tutt’altro che economici, aggiungeteci anche le spese di spedizione altissime, l’eventuale dogana, e capite che prendere delle cantonate non è bello.

Mi chiedo se sono le mie aspettative ad essere troppo alte o se c’è stato tanto rumore per nulla su questa linea. Se avete esperienze coi Polish Me Silly dite pure!

  1. Ero curiosissima di sentire la tua opinione in merito...A occhio direi che "molto rumore per nulla", effettivamente il cambio colore sembra uno dei classici (anche se è positivo che si veda in modo così marcato, a me piace molto quando appaiono entrambi i colori sull'unghia).

    1. Sì è bello, ma ce ne sono di altrettanto belli a prezzo mooooolto più basso secondo me!

  2. La mutanda nun se batte, non c'è storia. Nel dubbio, comunque, e visto quello che m'avevi anticipato, non ho ordinato i Polish Me Silly dalla Hypnotic... E per quello che ho visto qui ho fatto bene. Bello ma non balla!

    1. Bello ma non balla esprime esattamente il mio pensiero.

  3. It may have been underwhelming but at least you captured the colour shift perfectly

    1. Thank you Vic! I rarely struggle with duochromes actually!

  4. I just got this one but haven't had a chance to wear it yet. I think the shift is pretty. You captured it well.

    1. I've just read your post and I am curious to read the upcoming review. I must say I have a lot of duo and multichromes because it's one of my favourite effects. For this reason it's also hard to find a shift that's really unique, too. The reason I was quite pissed off at though is the claim not to need an undie.

  5. Non ho esperienza diretta né con Polish Me Silly né con il suo brand primigenio, ma una mia amica aveva preso dei termici ed altri smalti PMS e non si era trovata bene neanche lei. Universalmente con le formule abbastanza noiose da stendere, un po' con l'odore in alcuni e con la durata in altri. Peccato, questi multichrome allettavano anche me!

    1. L'abbreviazione non sta bene :D Ahahah! A parte tutto, come formula/qualità non ho davvero nulla da ridire, è perfetto da quel punto di vista. Sono solo molto scocciata che non abbia niente di speciale da giustificare il prezzo e che non mantenga quello che promette (niente base 'sta ceppa).

  6. I do not have anything by this brand, but that is a bummer! The only multichromes I own are the ILNP ones and they're opaque on their own, too.

    1. I ordered Nostalgia off the recent ILNP sale! I can't wait to see if it lives up my expectations and how it compares to Polish Me Silly!

  7. I agree - I feel like there are so many multichromes out there now that it's difficult to get a super unique shift. This is a pretty one for sure, but I own an ILNP ultrachrome that's basically identical (and actually opaque in 2 coats)! But anyways, this one does look good on you and I like it best with the dark polish underneath!

    1. Thanks! I agree with you about the struggle to find a unique shift, especially in my stash which is quite big on duo and multichromes! I recently ordered ILNP Nostalgia and I am quite curious to see how it compares to Polish Me Silly!

  8. Oh man, I like it better with the undies too!! I don't think your expectations were too high. This is a gorgeous polish but it would be nice to eliminate that extra step!!

    1. You know, I don't mind using a base, I always do, but it pisses me off that you promise something super opaque and super unique. This is neither!

      Delete
  9. I can understand being a little underwhelmed by this polish. I do like that you tried it with a different polish underneath it, but still!

    1. I don't mind using an undie, that's what I always do. But if I spend this much in an indie that claims to be stand-alone it has to be!

  10. For not liking a polish I think you photographed it beautifully! The ILNP multichromes are pretty fabulous. I must have at least three colors in my chromes teehee

    1. Thank you Shelby! I recently ordered ILNP Nostalgia off their sale, can't wait to try it!

  11. Honestly, it reminds me of Colour Alike duochromes that are less expensive. And I prefer it over dark blue, it gains more depth.

    1. Thank you Aneta! I agree, I don't know if I have a CA with this colour shift but for sure they are opaque the same, if not even more, and they cost probably 1/4!

  12. Buh, che peccato. Con la mutanda è davvero molto meglio. Per fortuna ne hai presi solo un paio, dai!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Aww, I'm sorry that the polish was a disappointment for you. At least it looks pretty layered over a darker color!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Come già sai, la penso esattamente come te: colori simili a tanti altri (i cambi psichedelici che si vedono in certi swatches non sono credibili, quindi volo basso con le aspettative) ok, però puntavo molto sulla veridicità del "no mutanda, sì party". Indie costoso bocciato, da una parte dispiace, ma dall'altra... Meglio così!

    1. Diciamo che è meglio così. Spero che l'ILNP che ho preso non mi deluda anch'esso.

  15. I think this looks really pretty in your photo's but I know how it feels to be a little disappointed by a duo chrome. I really like how the colour shift looks here. xx

    1. The colour shift is super nice! It's just not unique nor opaque :(

      Delete
  16. I still think it's pretty! I'm sorry you were disappointed :(

    1. It is! I mean it's very pretty! But it's not unique, not extremely opaque, and basically not worth the price. You get the same with any cheaper mainstream brand.

      Delete
  17. I've found that a lot of the multichromes that say "no undies" are still much better with undies. I still think this is a gorgeous polish (or maybe your pics are just fabulous ;) )

    1. Thank you Jenny! I am almost glad to hear that, although I wished I knew earlier haha :) My pics do it justice, I swear!

  18. You captured the colour shift perfectly! But it's sad that it did not live up to your expectations. Yes, I can easily spot which one you did with undie and I do like it better that way too. And it is not really multichrome at all, just duochrome. So I understand.
    I have many Polish me Sillies, but only one multichrome, of their "Meet my Chromies" line. The other ones are toppers and crellies. Those are gorgeous, though! So don't give up on the brand just yet!

    1. It's duochrome for the most part, yes, with some rare bronze shift which you can see in the second and third photos. I have another one, let's see if it's any better than this. I must say I am quite tempted to use it with an undie though, not even trying it on its own!

      Delete
  19. I think the shift on this is pretty. I'm also a believer that undies make it better for almost all shifters.

    1. I have to sadly agree! No more undie-less! Haha :)

  20. Ciao Simona, se non erro hai messo la mutanda sull'indice, comunque guarda, a me non dispiacciono neanche le altre unghie sai! Questo smalto mi ricorda vagamente un duochrome della maybelline, che presa dall'indecisione non comprai, tempo fa! Un abbraccio e buona notte,
    Marghe

    1. Esatto :) Mi ricordo vagamente i duochrome Maybelline ma potresti avere ragione!

  21. You capture multichromes so well! Not an easy feat!

    1. I think I've never struggled with multichromes, maybe because I take my pics in natural light and not in a lightbox?

  22. Was it your middle nail? Buying duo/multichrom is always risky, they don't always turn out as expected. But the ones who do, I absolutely love!

  23. La mia esperienza polish me silly è nulla per cui non posso esprimermi a riguardo, mi dispiace tanto per la delusione, decisamente comprensibile... :(

  24. Anche io non ho molta voce in capitolo.... anche perchè sono troppo innamorata dei miei cari Ludurana per tradirli! :-D

    It's not bad but not living up to its promise
