Being introduced to CAPTION NAIL POLISH has been a highlight of late 2017 to early 2018. So far I’ve worn 3 Caption polishes and am craving more. It’s not hard to fall for a line of polish that has over 100 amazing shades and that is wearing perfectly on me. I’m staring at my nails right now as I’m at the end of 7 days of wearing ‘Selfie Fulfilled Prophecy’ and the shine and wear is absolutely perfect. 7 days of perfect wear actually on all 3 of the polishes I’ve worn.
CAPTION polishes can be found in many different finishes and I was immediately attracted to a shimmery metallic, a true metallic, and a chrome. But I can just as easily find creams, crellies, and top coats that are exciting additions to my nail polish collection.
When looking at what I was sent I was mesmerized by amethyst. Totally mesmerized! So the first polish I wore is “Way Above Average” which is described as an over-achieving metallic amethyst.
This midtone purple is almost a one coater but I like two coats to even out the finish. There’s an embedded glitter in the polish that makes it shine and look way way above average.
CAPTION uses what they call an LacQ3 Technology to make it wear as well as a gel and helps with its mirror-like shine. The polishes dry really quickly, they say 3x faster than a regular polish. There’s no difficulty in removal since they don’t need to be soaked.
The next polish that attracted me and rightly so is “Let’s Be Frank“. My friend Frank here is a ‘straight talking metallic garnet’. Since garnet is my birthstone I often like wearing the shade, especially in January, and this is the prettiest garnet I’ve worn.
This has the most striking glitter yet it’s smooth as can be. It only looks shimmery but doesn’t feel shimmery. I’m not a fan of bumpy polish so this finish is awesome. The shine is totally fabulous and lasts and lasts. I never had to apply another layer of topcoat during a week’s wear because it stayed this way the entire time.
My third choice is SELFIE FULFILLED PROPHECY, a fabulous chrome polish that is wearing so beautifully.
This is the chameleon of the bunch. It looks different all the time. It’s described as a ‘fiesty fuchsia chrome’ and I see half a dozen colors depending on which light I’m in. I am looking at a light golden copper in the low light of my computer room. In the brighter lights of the nail salon I described it as a copper rose. I see a lot of rose in the polish but it’s never just one shade.
This is truly a one coater though I am wearing two coats. My nail tech even asked me if I wanted a second coat since she too was amazed at how smoothly and fully it applied.
There are over 100 polishes ($9.95) on the CAPTION website as well as dozens on Dermstore (they are $12 there though) and I can easily find half a dozen more I’m eager to wear. If you haven’t heard of CAPTION before you are missing out on some beauties. Believe it or not the company is owned by two male nail technicians who named their company Young Nails. They’ve been in business for over 20 years and sell in 40 countries worldwide. I may not have known about them before but now that I do, I won’t forget!! — Marciasamples
