The Lady Varnishes The Second Chance Romancer (Captain Wentworth) Swatches & Review

Disclaimer:  These polishes were offered at a reduced price or at no charge to manicuremanifesto.com in exchange for published reviews.  All reviews are fair, honest and reflect my personal opinion.  

The last polish I have for you from The Lady Varnishes is The Second Chance Romancer (Captain Wentworth) from the Brooding Boys Collection.  Whenever I get a choice of what colours to review I always try to choose one that's a bit out of my comfort zone.  Captain Wentworth was that polish because I'm not usually drawn to copper coloured anything.  Because of this I was expecting this to be the polish I liked least out of all the ones I got to try.  I mean, don't get me wrong, I like all of them... but there's always one you like best.   However, when I actually put this polish on my prediction got flipped upside down.  I love this polish!! It's super unique and I think it my be my favorite from the four I tried.

Ok, back to actual polish itself.  The Second Chance Romancer (Captain Wentworth) is a navy blue jelly with a subtle copper shimmer and two sized of iridescent copper hex glitter.  Despite being a jelly it is highly pigmented and goes opaque in 2-3 coats.  The bottle needed a good shake before I started to get the glitter off the bottom and mixed throughout the polish.  The formula was easy to work with and it dried smoothly.  I did have to do a little dabbing to get the largest copper hexes where I wanted them.

The pictures show two coats of The Second Chance Romancer (Captain Wentworth) with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in natural sunlight.  I love how much depth this polish has without having to apply a ton of coats.  Want a bottle of your very own?  Check out her Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheLadyVarnishes.  What do you think of this polish?  Has it changed your mind about copper like it did mine?
