Swatch & Review: Twenty Seven Polish ‘Mistborn’

“Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term art, I should call it “the Reproduction of what the senses perceive in nature through the veil of the mist”
~ Edgar Allan PoeI love me some black holo glitter! I enjoy wearing dark manicures during the winter, but I try and stay away from plain black – so polishes like this are a must for me!

Mistborn is a stunning black polish with rainbow holo flecks throughout. It has a wonderful holo effect, and the colors add a dimension that is not often found in black polishes. What I love about this polish so much is that even when inside or under dim lighting, the holo is still apparent. In sunlight it is more vibrant, but the more subtle holo effect present indoors is also nice.

As with all the other Twenty Seven polishes I have tried, the formula was incredibly easy to work with. It took two coats to reach full opacity, although you could easily get by with one (I have a thing where I almost always automatically apply a second coat even if it isn’t absolutely necessary). It’s also worth noting that I’ve worn this at least four times over the last few months, and oftentimes with mini bottles the formula can get goopy the more it is exposed to air (true for all polish, but definitely more noticeable with minis) but the formula is just as smooth as the day I first opened it. Score!

  1. I’ve gotta say… I was expecting a less positive review based on the photos! The formula looks like a patchier version of Zoya Storm!

    Note: This is NOT to bash you or the polish maker. I have yet to try any of her polishes.

    • I’ve never swatched Zoya Storm before, so I can’t really compare :)

      I have worn Mistborn several times and never had any issues with it, but perhaps I would feel differently if I had a similar polish of a different brand.
