Remember how I found that new Maybelline polish display the other day? Remember how I said that I thought there were probably two other polishes on some other makeup display and that one of them would probably be green? I was right! My friend Amber and I ran across the makeup display (full!) yesterday at a random Walgreens.
OH HEY LOOK A GREEN
This Walgreens was like the mecca of all new polish collections. I don't know what's going on with the drug stores in Northeastern Ohio, but they've been pretty awesome lately. We also found that L'Oreal collection that's supposed to be dupe-y for Essie North Fork. I did take pictures, so maybe I'll post those at a later time. I picked up the green because I couldn't resist it. I put it on last night at two in the morning because I couldn't wait to wear it.
This polish is called La La Lime and it's amazingly gorgeous. I absolutely love it. I guess it's what I'd call "spring green." It also has this nice dusty and muted quality that seems to be really popular in spring releases lately. It of sort of almost reminds me of OPI Creme de Menthe, but the OPI has gold shimmer and is as sheer as all get out, or so I've heard.
Last night at two in the morning I thought this looked similar to the green color on my Orbit Sweet Mint package. Clearly I was very tired and the light was bad.
Anyway, the formula was not good. The brush was cut weirdly. I did three coats and I just got a new bottle of Seche Vite, so that helped even things out in the end. The trouble was worth it, though, because I seriously love this color. If you can find this one, go get it. It's a drug store gem. I still have that feeling, though, that it's going to be difficult to find. I think I was lucky to stumble across it.
Alright, sound off ladies. Anyone seen this yet? Have I created any lemmings? Any awesome Saturday plans? I'm working so...yeah, that's awesome. Meh.
