I'm a sucker for gunmetal so when I saw Tris I knew I needed it. NEEDED! But I also knew the formula would bubble on me. Which brings me to a point that I've been thinking about for awhile: bubbling. People are going to throw things at me I just know it.
Nail polish is a viscous solution. A very sticky and thick liquid that changes states as it becomes exposed to air and temperature. So while shaking your polish *may* cause a few tiny bubbles, that's not why it bubbles. If that was the case that can of paint you bought for your living room would bubble completely up...they mix the ever loving out of that before you take it home. Polish makers use the same method to create their colors. So your carefully stored polish that you never shake? It's been shaken like you wouldn't believe already. Sorry to spoil the fun.
Things that prevent the nail polish from adhering to your nail are what cause bubbling. Like:
- Humidity (polishes are far more likely to bubble in the summer)
- Solvents on the nail (oils, lotions, partially dried polish)
- And sometimes good, old-fashioned body chemistry.
That's that for today. I do have that monthly sub box still coming. I ran into some issues making the video (which is why I take pictures for the record), but for better or for worse it'll be up soon.
