Yesterday I showed you OPI Black Cherry Chutney and today I'm showing you Maybelline Sweet Clementine. Delicious, delicious fruit. Sweet Clementine is the last of my Sweet Thing polishes. I think I got every polish except the pinks, of which there were either two or three.
And with a pot no one actually uses for cooking, but that is always sitting on the stove.
Sweet Clementine is a yellow-leaning orange creme. It's really, really beautiful. I'm not sure that it's actually flattering on my skintone, but I like wearing it. It's supposedly going to be 80 degrees today, so I wanted something springy/summery. The formula was...eh. I think this one needs to be thinned. My application was bad, so I'm sorry about that. This bottle wasn't lumpy either. Out of all of my Sweet Thing polishes the only one that was lumpy and gross and a true nightmare was Goody Plum Drop, which is a shame. That's such a beautiful color with such beautiful shimmer. All in all, good show Maybelline! This was a great collection and I loved every single color I brought home with me.
Something else really quick. My good friend Ted, who is working in Iraq right now, took a vacation to New Zealand not too long ago. He surprised me with a package. The contents therein? A couple plush animals (including a kiwi! This is the second kiwi he has sent me 'cause he knows I have a weird obsession with them) and some tourist-y things. Except...why is this a tourist thing?
I mean, it's funny, but why is this a souvenir sticker? Is it because we Americans are silly bitches and we buy stuff like this? Probably. Can anyone from New Zealand explain this to me? I did take this sticker to work and show it to the rest of my little barista pals. We all got a good laugh. And here's my new kiwi friend.
You can't tell from the picture, but he's actually quite large. I love him.
Alright, that's all for today. Does anybody have a favorite polish from the Maybelline Sweet Thing collection? I think my favorite one...well, it's a tie between Pie in the Sky and Sweetie Pie. I guess I just like pie? It's almost the weekend, guys! Be happy!
