As you can see, this ain't no Milani holo, or the pink I thought I'd use next. The weather forecast said dreary and rainy on Tuesday...definitely not a good day for holos. And the pink?...well... my appetite changed after seeing Sasha's post HERE with BB Couture, Zuma Wave Rider. That's a Baby Blue I can get into!
The 3 baby blues I have in my collection are; Claire's pastel blue, Quirius, Cruiser & Maybelline, Pie In The Sky. Out of the 3, I'd say Pie In The Sky comes closest to Zuma Wave Runner. Since that one has been swatched to death, I tried Claire's pastel blue, and immediately gave up due to the brush size. So, I went with Quirius, Cruiser, and what a nightmare! Before I say anything else about this polish...I am not a creme fan!
I don't apply them well, nor do I think they look nice on my nails. I think they look fabulous on everyone else, but on me, cremes tend to look ...um...flat and one dimensional. I dunno, perhaps my dislike for cremes stems from the fact that I grew up in the age of frosts, and that is why I prefer shimmers.
Anyway! Quirius, Cruiser is a pretty creme, however, it is definitely super-streak-city for me. I did not add thinner to this...my instincts tell me that this polish would benefit from the addition of thinner and a bit of clear, and a decant into a bottle with a better brush. (This polish doesn't "level" well, and thinner is not enough, therefore my reasoning for the addition of a clear) I've decanted one of my Quirius polishes, Paris Night(?) into one of the new Sally Hansen Complete Salon bottles, and it did wonders for application.
This mani is 3 coats and done 1 hour before I went to bed. Drying time was great! I love the color of this polish, and I *really* wanted this lacquer to redeem itself, so I did not apply Seche. Upon waking this morning, I had NO sheet-marks and miraculously a lot- but not all of the streaks disappeared with curing overnight.
What do you think of this color on me?
I believe that with a brush like this, even the best formulated polish would have streak issues;
Can't think of a clever title for this post about smiling soap - I was feeling pretty crappy yesterday (having a rough month, if it wasn't already obvious) and I was hoping a hot shower would make me feel better. Usuall...
