Hello everyone :) It's Saturday and I've already worked this morning so I've got the rest of the day free. Kind of a nice feeling. I don't even know what I'll do! I'm exhausted, though, so it'll probably be a quiet, lazy day. Would you like to win a bottle of Sally Hansen Salon Hidden Treasure? Then click here to enter my haiku contest. It's easy. And fun!
I've got Essie Knockout Pout for you guys today; it's the pink from the collection. Pictures first, opinions second.
So...eh. I'm really not a fan of pink. It looks nice on my fingers in these pictures, but in real life I kind of hate it. One of my co-workers (a male!) even said, "That doesn't suit you." The only pink I've ever enjoyed wearing is $OPI Go With the Flow-er, which I recently posted on. Because I never wear pinks I feel like I'm really bad at describing them. This one isn't quite bubblegum pink...it just reminds me of Barbie. The weird thing about this one is that it's just on the cusp of being neon because it's so bright. It even dries to a satin finish. These images show the polish with three coats of Knockout Pout and one coat of Seche Vite. The formula wasn't great. It was thick and it was difficult to get even. Even after three coats I still couldn't really make it look good on my index finger; I'm not sure if you can tell from the pictures. Also, I painted my nails yesterday around 5pm and by 11pm I had a chip on my index finger. I wasn't even doing anything with my hands. Not happy about that.
The only thing that I really like about this polish is its name. Knockout Pout is an adorable name for a pink. Good job on that, Essie. All in all, this isn't a very unique polish so I think that unless you're a pink hoarder (and I know you're out there!) you can probably skip this one. It might make a cute pedicure, but it's definitely not for me.
What do you guys think of Knockout Pout? Are you going to pick it up or skip it? I definitely wouldn't have grabbed it had it not been included in my set of minis. Also, what's everyone doing this weekend? Any fun plans? I could definitely use a nap. See? That's how fun I am.
