Confession time. When I bought this polish last month, I wasn’t entirely sold on the shade. I desperately wanted Graphite, which I also picked up, but Peridot was purely a ‘Sheep purchase’ – the term I’m going to start using when I buy something to follow the status quo. It was a ‘must-have’ in the blogosphere, and I didn’t want to feel regret that I didn’t get it because everyone else did. But honestly, it just didn’t get me the same way Graphite did. And I was convinced it wasn’t going to look good with my skintone. Nonetheless, I spent the $27CDN and bought my very own bottle. It wasn’t until after painting for four days straight (OMG we’re exhausted, but ZOMG! – our house looks spectacular!!!!!!!!!) that I decided to wear this shade because it was ‘special’ (as in, mega-expensive-its-gotta-last-forever-special) and I deserved it. I didn’t hold any illusions about how it was going to look on me, but it is still an interesting shade regardless.
Blah blah blah. Seriously, I’m done talking, all I can say is: absolutely hands down my favorite polish that I own. The End. It applied better than any other polish I’ve ever used, like molten gold…and I simply CANNOT.STOP.STARING.AT.MY.NAILS. Not to toot my own horn but…..oh what the hell. It looks FABULOUS on me. 100% WIN.
Pics. Two coats. No more to say.
Truly and utterly wonderful. For once I really don’t have anything more to say. If you haven’t yet, and still can – buy this right now. NOW I said. You need to own it. I promise its so much more amazing in person. I absolutely do NOT buy backups for any product – I’m ready to move on when it’s done – but I am actually considering it with this polish.
What is the world coming to?
