NOTD - Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge - Your Most Ugly Nail Polish

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?


  1. i would totally wear that! wouldn't buy it unless it was on major sale since that brand is expensive

  2. Yes it's not all that bad! I know what you mean about it being expensive. A month ago managed to get some for a bargainous £4 each which wasn't too bad compared £10 a piece! x
