Bobbie's Foil it Collection


The current collection that Bobbie released was the Foil It Collection which only has 3 shades. I hope that Bobbie would come up with more shades for this is a great collection!

As what the name says, the effect of this is more of a metallic foil effect. It's very opaque & you would only need to do 2 coats just to be able to have that full look.

This is how the 3 polishes look like...


I included the name of the shade of the 3 in the pic & how it looks like on the bottle.

First is the Adored shade...


It's a really pretty metallic burgundy-ish! I'm sorry if i wasn't able to take a pic of it in natural light for it was already a bit dark when i was able to swatch the shade. What you see on the bottle is actually the shade that you will be getting.

Second is the Charmed shade...


This is my favorite amongst the 3 for it is a great metallic bronze-ish polish. Really pretty! Love it to bits!

Last is the Electrified shade...


A great metallic silver polish! This is something that really screams silver! If you are tired of the usual silver that doesn't hold an appeal then you ought to try this for this really catches attention! It's metallic so naturally it would do that...hehe

I'm really happy that Bobbie has a good selection of polishes without paying for an exorbitant price. The only thing that i'm having trouble with this brand is that the drying time is quite slow. It could be touch dry after a couple of minutes but the fully dry stage takes after a couple of hours.

Yes, a couple of hours! Would you believe if i said that i applied it in the evening, waited for 2 hours to dry... then i fell asleep waiting. The next day when i woke up, there were hair marks all over my polish. It wasn't completely destroyed, but hair marks after 2 hours (or who knows if it even exceeded than that for i wasn't keeping a close tab on the clock)!?

Come on!!!
Isn't that annoying?!
Mukatsuku!!!!
(-__-")

I also have the Holoprism collection,right? Drying those is a pain in the neck!
Bobbie, please do something about this! I don't have any negative things about Bobbie except the drying time though.

What can i say about it more?...It's locally available (of course!), cheap (it's only Php33 or $0.75) , doesn't have limited time in each specific collection, doesn't contain the big 3 toxic nail polish ingredients.... but the drying time is the only thing that's holding me back. Is it because it doesn't contain toulene?!

Oh, maybe one thing too, that i personally want is to be able to have this in a bigger bottle. Most Bobbie polishes are only 8 ml... though there are also other shades that are being sold in a bigger bottle, which i think is 15ml, but that's very limited. The shades i think are the usual neutral colors... The funky nail shades are only packed in the smaller bottle though.

If Bobbie would be able to come up with a better formulation but retains the shade, then this is something that would be highly recommended! But nevertheless, it is a good brand.

For my fellow pinays out there, am i the only one having trouble with the drying time? What's your experience? How can i make this dry faster?! This is really annoying!

Hope you could give me a tip or two~

Have a great day!
Jaa ne~!

Ganda! Proud that our own local brands are coming up with gorgeous shades!

Camille said...

Wow! Improving na talaga ang Bobbie! I'll get those shades! Drying time? one of the techniques that I do, just apply thin layers, then wait about 15 minutes before applying another.. =) Hope that helps =P

Hazel said...

i experienced that too.. drying time takes forever.. mawawalan na yata ako ng hininga kaka-ihip! hahaha but i guess that's the only drawback.. so i guess we just have to deal with it.. tutal, it's very cheap naman e :)

i love the silver polishes!

ChinaDoll said...

the first shade is my favorite! and about the drying part, I have to agree, it really takes time before it dries...I can suggest you to use a quick drying top coat though...I hope it works for you :)

Justine said...

It's my first time to try something from them, Exactly Red (on my last blog post). I agree with the hair marks haha and it started chipping by the third day.

I wonder why I don't have any problems with the drying time of Bobbie nail polish? Hmmm. Hindi naman masyadong matagal magdry pag ginagamit ko...

@Thiamere Thanks for the info on the NYX round lipsticks and I'll try rubbing it on something gold.

But the Cosmetic Cop, Paula Begoun and her team has reviewed them and found nothing wrong at all. Her reviews are based on the product ingredients, how it reacts to the skin and results on many product test on women.

I have used them for a long time and I did not notice any discoloration on my lips or what so ever. I guess people have to make sure the lipstick is not old.

I bought Bobbie polishes because of you and now I'm hooked! I didn't have any issues with the drying time. In fact, mine dried up pretty quick. :D I'm so excited to get my hands on the Foil It line!
