Swatch Saturday: Alter Ego Duct Taper!

Press Sample

Hello, readers! Are you having a good weekend so far? We got to swim in our pool in between some rain storms today so that was a nice time! 

I have some swatches to share with you today of a new Alter Ego Nail Enamel. You may remember my other Alter Ego posts:

Duct Taper is the color of duct tape! It dries to an awesome satin finish with a slight texture. The pigmentation is awesome and is almost a one coater! I did two coats and am showing with and without top coat for you below. Alter Ego uses a unique base and the colorants settle upon standing. A few minutes upside down and/or some good shaking mixes it right back up and the application is amazing!

First, without top coat:

And with one coat of shiny top coat:

The top coat really brings out the shimmer!

What do you think? Every shimmer Alter Ego Nail Enamel I've tried dries to this awesome satin finish. It's like you get two polishes in one with the change from applying top coat. Thanks for reading!

*The polish in this post was sent for me to review with my honest opinion.

  1. What a fabulous review! Thank you so very much from the bottom, top & all around my heart <3 Your mani is perfect & your photos are outstanding!

  2. Wow! I never knew I wanted duct tape colored/themed nail polish til now!

  3. Awesome polish! - I think it's more duct tape-y without the top coat... the satin texture is more of a match for actual duct tape. With the top coat it gets lost in the crowd of beautiful shiny silvers. But like you said, it's like a 2-for-1 bargain!

  4. love this! it definitely evokes a duct tape look!!
