Yesterday it snowed. SNOWED! And it wasn't just little flurries. It actually stuck to the ground. We have at least an inch now. Uber-sigh. It's sunny today, so I hope it melts quickly. Last night my friend Amber and I went to Rite-Aid, just to look around. Turns out it was spring drugstore polish heaven. I guess they had just put out a ton of new displays, which I will show you later in the post with crappy iPhone pictures. Whenever I see a Borghese display I always pick up the bottles to check for Almondine. It's just habit by now. Last night, though, I actually found Almondine. It almost didn't register in my head when I saw the name on the back of the bottles. Then I may have squealed and hugged them to myself.
Hm. How to describe this...well, it's a taupe. But it has these little black flecks in it that give it a gray cast. It also has a hidden pink shimmer that I assure you actually does show up on the nail, it's just so hard to capture. Here's a bottle picture.
My jankity arrow is pointing to the pink shimmer. Do you see it? Here's a macro of the polish on my nail.
Black flecks and pink shimmer, clearly visible. The brush on both of my bottles of Almondine (yeah, I got two) was wonky. Bristles sticking out willy-nilly. It made it kind of difficult to use, but I persevered. This is three coats, and the formula was alright. Nothing to sing about. I really like the colors that Borghese comes out with, but...eight dollars for a drugstore polish is so steep. I was willing to pay it for this one, though.
Raven strikes a sexy pose with Almondine. He loves to look out the window in the morning.
Sorry for all the pictures. ...more are coming! I took some crappy iPhone photos of all the new spring stuff at my Rite-Aid.
Borghese Tutti Gelati. Mary from Body & Soul had some great pictures of a few of these yesterday if any of you are interested in what they look like (and I know you are!).
New Insta-Dris. I didn't even know there were new Insta-Dris! I feel like new ones just came out a couple months ago.
Scented Revlons! OMG! I tested a couple of them on a bit of paper and they are definitely scented. The blue one is called Ocean Breeze and Amber was hoping it smelled of dead fish. It didn't. It smelled pretty nice!
That's all for today. Are you guys excited for the weekend? Anyone have any fun plans? Also, does anyone else have Almondine? Do you love it like I do? It's such an interesting twist on a neutral...
