Sweets-Sweets Tokyo Varnish Review

Hello! Today I've got a short and sweet (haha I'm so funny) review on the Sweets-Sweets Tokyo nail varnish/polish.  They've also got an adorable website!

We received two sets of three polishes from the Chiffon Meetup, but since not everybody uses nail polish, we divided them among the ones who do. I go a blue and a green. 

One of the biggest things I dislike about nail polish is the smell, and these luckily don't give off much smell at all!  I was painting Neco's nails in the restaurant (we were a bit overexcited and forgot about the situation) and it didn't cause any smell that could overpower just the smell of pancakes. At home I use it and the smell is truly minimal in these sparkling, buildable polishes.

Three coats of the polish is opaque
The first coat of polish is pretty sheer, and I think it would look good as a topcoat over white polish or another one of your choice. It would reflect at different angles and look very cool, I think!

In order to get a completely opaque look using only these polishes, it took me three coats. At two it was fairly opaque but the brush strokes were visible.  Layering this polish with a base in the same color would be a good way to get the opacity you want without applying so many layers!

Overall, I really like these polishes and will keep my eye out for other colors.  They last pretty well so long as you remember to add a topcoat of your choice.

What's your favorite nail polish color? I really love a vibrant yet neutral pastel pink, which probably is not a good description ^^; image the color of strawberry milk and that is the shade of pink that I like!

I haven't had time to do fancier nail art designs recently, nor have I felt inspired to do anything other than Candy Corn pedicure.  If I get a good idea to go with these polishes, I'll definitely be making a post about that!

Thanks for reading and commenting!  Hope you have a lovely day~
