I have heard of polish shrinkage but never experienced myself until the week before my vacation!
I was wearing my Rimmel English Rose manicure with the gold stamp. The following afternoon after I did the manicure, I was waiting at the bus stop and admiring the design....then I noticed it! It wasn't tip wear, it was true shrinkage! It was even across all nails, here is a picture showing the shrinkage.
I am anxious to try this color again, with only Seche top coat and without to see if this repeats!
