On my latest stop at Bonjour, I came across a bottle of cute-and-cheap that I couldn't wait to get home and onto my nails. I'd never heard of Castledew before, but for about $2 US, I was eager to give this Korean, indie-looking, yogurt-style polish a try.
It's possible this shade is 9707, but there's so much extra print crammed onto the bottom of my bottle that I can't be totally sure. Apparently I need to hire someone
At the first stroke I knew this polish would need way too many coats to reach opacity, so I layered it over a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. Even then, it still took a good 3 1/2 coats to match the bottle's glitter density, so...not a whole lot of bang for your buck. On the other hand, it was only two bucks to begin with, and the result is still really cute.
I definitely love the rainbow glitter mixture, as well as the combination of shapes and sizes. On its own, it's probably not meant to be especially dense or opaque, and as such I wouldn't recommend it as a good stand-in for indies like Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker or KBShimmer Oh, Splat!. But layered (or maybe even with some white added, which is what I'm thinking of doing), it's a soft, cheerful, nicely milky rainbow of glittery cuteness.
