Mmmm Forbidden Island

So "Mmmm" isn't necessarily my description for this indie polish, but the name of the company on Etsy. It has such a fun name and I get a glint in my eye when I see minty-esque type greens that this one was hard to resist. After I made the purchase of three polishes from the store,I see now that she no longer has an active store or products? I'm not sure if she was just dabbling in the frank world, but my thoughts on the polish may indicate this very fact.
This is three coats of Forbidden Island. I realize that some frankens, especially indie glitter-bombs are thick and need a thinner, but even a brand new bottle of this was very gloopy. After one day of wear it cracked and I seemed to have bald patches even with that many coats. Ultimately it was fine on the nail, but honestly I'm not sure if I'll be using this again =/. I used some Born Pretty Store water decals which pulled out the blue glitter nicely. I am a big fan of their water decals as they have a smooth application and last awhile.
I haven't tried my other two polishes, hopefully those are in a better state of affairs!
