Oh dear Lord where do I begin with this nail polish? Is it a neon? Not quite. Is it matte? Not quite. Does it look nice on me? Uh, NO! I think someone with a different skin tone might be able to pull this off. I’m just too dark for this to look ok. Taking pictures of it was like climbing Mt. Everest. It also had a sort of weird formula that dried kind of fast like a neon but it was pretty pigmented. It did pull and create bald spots when I didn’t let it dry enough before applying another coat. In order to even it out, I applied 3 coats.
These first three pictures were taken with flash. It washed out the color somewhat.
Please excuse the cuticle oil. I neglected to massage it in well enough which makes my fingers look like greasy sausages. I took the following pictures with natural light and they just look icky. My skin looks so grey.
I am so not happy with this color. I am going to leave it on my nails because I’d rather have this color on than nothing at all. I was wearing Mysterious Curse on my nail,s but I ruined them when I gave myself a pedicure. Not smart.
The gym was alright last night. I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and then walked 2 miles on the treadmill. It was ok as my first workout. When I got home, I had a massive headache. I thought I would sleep like a baby, but I didn’t really. I actually had a very difficult time tossing and turning all night. The other night I had a dream that I was in a psych ward and that Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) was my doctor. He was tearing us down patient by patient and when he got to me, I got so mad that I grabbed his cane and started beating him with it. Then someone picked up this big sink looking thing and threw it out the window like The Chief in One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. We all stood there staring–I even stopped beating Dr. House. That’s the last thing I remember.
I doubt I’ll wear this color again; maybe I will just use it for designs and stuff. Essie deception. You looked so pretty in the bottle.
