Death by Chocolate Nail Polish | SoSu | Classic and Wilde

I was delighted last week when I received a gorgeous delivery from the lovely ladies from Revolve PR, of three nail polishes from the SoSu by Suzanne Jackson collection.

I received a clear top coat, which I really needed, “All that glitters” and “Death by Chocolate”, which is one of the new season colours that has just been added to the collection. All Summer I have been wearing ‘First Date’ from the first collection, and I have heard some improvements have been made to the polishes in this new collection, including a new application brush. There were originally 25 colours in the collection, and 8 new colours have been added for Autumn/ Winter.
The idea of these polishes is to achieve a gel effect without a UV lamp, which means that the finish is glossy, chip resistant and long-lasting.

 

 

SOSU Death by Chocolate nail polish review, classic and wilde

As the season changes, so do my nail polish colours. I love to wear dark nudes and even blacks in Winter. What I love about this colour is that as it is brown, it is much warmer than black, while giving a similar effect. The finish is still bold and leave a strong impact, but the slight purple undertone to the brown means it is not as harsh a colour as black.

While we are talking about nail polishes, can we discuss the word varnish? I actually HATE IT! When I think of varnish I think of staining a wooden floor. The word is just so harsh when I say it, it really should not be associated with something as feminine as a manicure. Polish is the only word I would like to use when discussing nails.

The brush has been made larger, which makes application much easier. If you remember from my last review, I really messed up my nails the first time as I couldn’t get the right amount of product on my nails.

Suzanne recommends having nails filed and buffed before painting, applying a base coat, two colour coats and a top coat for optimal application. I would also recommend this process, as I found with this colour one coat was not great. This is not the type of polish you could apply in a rush with just one coat, you really need the two coats, to achieve an even application.

Final thoughts: I love the colour, the topcoat gives a glossy finish and protects the colour for days. I think the formula will continue to improve, as it is easier to apply this new colour compared to the last one I used. I am not great at DIY manicures, so I need really easy to use brushes and formulas.

You can buy the polishes online here or in Penneys and selected pharmacies across Ireland for €7.99.
