Pink from Pacific UK, Northwich

Hi Kids! I finally found a medium pink creme that looks good on me!
About a year ago I picked-up a set of 7 polishes packed in a round plastic box at Ross. I thought "Nail Polish" in Old English style lettering, foiled in purple, on the bottle was absolutely gorgeous. The colors weren't too shabby either. Aside from a quick swatch in the car, on the top of the plastic container they came in, these polishes sat in the furthest regions of my stash- destined to be untried...

Until last night, when I pulled out the pink, swatched it on my nail, and found that it looked great with my skin-tone. Not too bright, blue, chalky or creme-y, this polish is an almost jelly, and I love it!
I can't wait to go through my fauxnad and Konad plates for this one! I am almost tempted to go girly...imagine that!
I am also tempted to try to remove that perpetual hard spot located at the sidewall on my middle finger (your right) with wart remover. That hard spot has been with me *all* my life and nothing has been able to remove it. I am desperate!!!
































Application was streaky, however, I managed to get an even first coat- which helps a lot with polishes that are not totally opaque. Second coat went on horribly streaky in  gloopy vertical ridges, so I added thinner for the third coat. When I was finished, I took a good look at the brush and realized that my troubles came from the brush and not so much the formula. When I have time, I'm going to see if I can get one of the new Sally Hansen Complete Salon brushes to fit in this bottle.

The only other marking on these polishes are 2 small round stickers on the bottom of each bottle. All 7 bottles have the same batch # 1148. Does anyone know more about these polishes?

Ainos what a gorgeous color. I think it suits you wonderfully well! I'm not always a pink person but this one is so soft and sweet. I like it very much. And what lovely bottles they come in. Never heard of the brand btw. It's a totally nice picture......

These are all very pretty shades.  Be brave and go girly! I hope you can find a brush to fit.  It would be nice if there was a standardized size of opening so you could have any brush fit.  Looks really pretty on you.  I always love your manicures and what you come up with as a design.
