Good afternoon lovelies!
Ok, so I joined a group on Facebook called The Purple Crumpet Fairy. They set new manicure challenges for each Friday and this week's challenge is to wear your most ugly polish. I am sorry that this post is a little late but better late than never!
Ok, so from the outset I thought this challenge would prove difficult especially because I tend to EBay my ugly polishes and so on looking through my stash and particularly my un-trieds I eventually found "Case Study" from Essie's Brand New Bag Collection 2011 and I remembered a conversation I had with my cousin Haley where she said she wore this and it reminded her of baby poo - so obviously not a good look so it must be ugly! Right?
Anyway, now that i am wearing it I have to confess I kind of like this little piece of ugly! Not sure when I will wear it again exactly but I think it's a keeper - mostly to do with the fact it was almost a one-coater (I still applied two) also applied extremely well and looks so creamy. The colour is a mixture of brown/khaki/green and beige and it is a creme finish. It reminds me of a military colour. It isn't all that appealing in the bottle nor on the nails as it's just not what I would consider "pretty", however, it's not as bad as I thought! I can see why my cousin thought it looks like baby you know what especially against different skin tones it might appear to look like that!
I also used NYC's Grand Central Station as a top coat for this mani and I am very impressed with the speedy drying time and the glossy finish - good job really considering I now have 6 bottles of it!
I apologise that these photos were not taken in daylight but this post is late enough already and I couldn't hold out another day!
What do you think? Would you wear this colour?
