Review: Daphine Polish Watermelon Taffy

Press Sample

I have the last of my Daphine Polish polishes to share with you today. I have to admit, when I opened my package and saw the name Watermelon Taffy, I was mildly amused. With a name like Melanie, you can't escape being associated with melons :P (Not that I'm saying this was done on purpose.. but you get the gist.) Watermelon Taffy was the full size sample I was provided with, which makes me very happy because ironically, this one is my favorite. I think the only thing that would make this polish possibly better is if it smelled like Watermelon.

"There's nothing like taffy made in and bought from a candy store on the boardwalk along the shore. Bright pink taffy with a green "rind," watermelon was always one of my favorite flavors. Part of the Beach Collection — inspired by all things beach related, they're all perfect colors for summer.

Pink almost-neon jelly with green and black glitters. It practically glows!"

This is the description of Watermelon Taffy, and I have to tell you, Joanne did a perfect job of creating a polish which captures the color and fun of watermelon. Just looking at the polish in the bottle, I'm reminded of watermelon.. the glitters and color she used for this are, in my mind's eye, perfect. 

L - R: 1 coat over black, 1 coat over white, 3 coats, 2 coats, 1 coat

I love how this looks as a topper over black and white, but I was looking at this polish and thought it would look fantastic over orange. So I decided to do something a little bit different with it.. get ready for my first Halloween manicure of the year!

For this manicure, I used 2 coats each of Kleancolor Neon Orange and LA Colors Circuits, with 1 coat of Watermelon Taffy.

This polish did apply just a little bit lumpy which you can see a bit better over black, but it really didn't bother me that much.

You can find Daphine Polish:

Watermelon Taffy is available on her Etsy shop for a $10 full size 16.5 ml bottle and it is 3 free.

Thank you to Joanne for providing me with this sample.
