Morgan Taylor Truth Or Dare Swatches & Review

Hello readers! Today I have a polish from a new (to me) brand, Morgan Taylor. I came across this brand when browsing amazon. There were a few shades that caught my eye so I added them to my wishlist on a whim. This is the first shade that I received in person, Truth Or Dare.

Truth Or Dare is a dark vampy shimmery purple.  Totally up my alley.  It does look a little more shimmery in the bottle than it does on the nails, but the shimmer still makes it through.  The formula was... average.  Not fantastic, not horrible.  It was streaky for the first two coats but finally evened out on the third.  Photos show three coats of Truth Or Dare with one coat of Seche Vite in natural lighting.

Do I like the colour? Yes.  Do I love the formula? Not really.  I feel like I could get a comparable polish from Zoya who's formulas I love and trust.  Will I try another polish from this brand? Probably.  Every brand has a polish with a not so great formula.  I don't want to write off potentially fabulous polishes because of one bad egg.  On another note though, I really love the bottle shape of this one.  The flared brush handle made it very easy to hold on to.  Are you willing to look past a mediocre formula if it's a colour you love?

Happy polishing,

- Michelle
