So, our wireless internet is frigged – but not on my bf’s computer, just mine! Super annoying. Currently I’m sitting on the floor near the modem with my computer actually plugged IN, as it’s the only way to get online. But DAMN this hallway is chilly so I won’t be hanging out here for long! In the interim, here’s some polish spam for you to keep to busy until I get this whole thing straightened out:China Glaze 2030. I also swatched Hi-Tek at the same time, but stupidly forgot to take photos, so that’ll be for another time. This one is actually up for swap – its flattering on me but I’m not really into this kind of look. Plus it’s a little annoying to apply as it dries fast and can get patchy easily. Pass!
Yuk. This is an LA Girl polish that I got in a swag bag, but the name is missing (sorry). Anyway, I hate colors like this – SUPER not my style. Though, this polish had one kickass formula – perfectly thin, but opaque in two coats, and with an awesome glossy finish. Too bad about the icky shade (though I’m sure it’d look great on someone!).
I should have titled this post: ‘Polishes I Hate’ because here’s another one that I’m not a fan of (maybe hate’s a strong word…but there is NO love lost). This is Deb Lippmann’s Satin Doll, one created for Mariah Carey. In theory, its quite pretty – its very complimentary to my skin tone, but I am not liking the old Granny shimmer at all. It makes this look really dated, which it very well could be – when did this come out? One of the awesome gals at Mills Brothers gave it to me because I spent an hour arranging the Lippmann polishes just so, one night while I was working at Clinique (hello, OCD!). This’ll go up for swap too like the others I suspect…so sad.
Rescue Beauty’s Piu Mosso. Bah! I’ve had this swatches for ages but just COULD not get the pretty fire-red shimmer to come out and play. And in all truthfulness, it really made this shade kinda disappointing to me. I know ‘secret shimmers’ are all the rage, and I loved me some Chanel Paradoxal, but for some reason this one didn’t translate the same. Maybe because its similar to Zoya’s Cynthia, which has my heart completely, that this seemed to be a dud in comparison. Which is weird because of the awesome shimmer…that you can only see in perfect sunny light. Meh. I’ll likely hang on to it for a while, then move on.
That’s all for now, I’ve caught up on almost all my backlogged polish swatches now :) I hope this gives you a lil something until I can get this ridiculous internet problem solved! My computer must be faulty :( (*Guess it’s time for a new one* heehee)
I hope everyone is well, be back soon!!
