Skin Food Juice Tox #7

I've been singing praises to Skin Food's polishes ever since I started posting about them. Until NOW, that is.

Do NOT, I repeat, DO NOT ever buy anything from their Juice Tox line.

#7 looks adorable enough in the bottle,

and sets in with a silky smooth satiny finish that looks more purple under bright light,

BUT IT NEVER COMPLETELY DRIES.

I first tested the infernal polish two weeks ago, Sunday morning. Take note, MORNING. I went about my day, then settled off to sleep. (At night, obviously. :P) I didn't have to go out in public anyway, so I didn't clean up the mani in the shower. The next day, I awake to this mess:
bed sheet marks EVERYWHERE. Ugh.

Yesterday I tried salvaging what I could from this difficult product. Top coats didn't work on it either, so I painted it over a layer of last week's similarly-colored French Kiss. Doing that seems to have fixed the not-drying problem. Here's what it looks like today:

Eh, I guess that's alright. I won't be buying any more Juice Toxes in the future, though.

It never dried? That is terrible! That's a shame because it is such a nice color!

too bad...You know...I think I've had the same experience with Bobbie Butterfly Kisses...looks good in the bottle, kinda milky and opaque looking...but when you put it on, it doesn't dry completely..even with a Quik Dry on top.

I've been tempted by those Juive Toks because I loved the colors so much (and this one especially, ah ah!). Well, thanks to yur reviews, I won't buy them. Waking up with bedsheet marks makes me angry. I am indulgent when it happens to old restored polishes but not brand new ones! :P

Oooh bummer! And it's such a lovely shade! Maybe you can try soaking your nails in water after putting on polish, just to hasten the drying process.
