My skin looks so pale in these photos...and I wish I could say I'm not actually this pasty, but I am. Sigh. Anyway, I'm really, really into this polish. I don't know why I bought it and took so long to use it. I was also feeling pretty shaky when I did this manicure and wasn't able to leave the gap between my nail and cuticle that I usually do. Looks a little weird, huh? And now I'm babbling, so I guess this means that I'm back into the groove of blogging, doesn't it? Okay, anyway, the color. The color is, for all intents and purposes, gray. But in some lights it will fool you and look taupe. And the best part about it is that there is definitely a drop of green somewhere in there. It's a little chameleon. The formula was a little thick and I ended up having to use three coats to even it out.
Also, does anyone have any advice for my dry cuticles? I've been slathering them nightly in Burt's Bee's Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream and it doesn't seem to be doing much. Sadly. I don't really know what else to do. They're not that bad in real life, but with the macro setting they look pretty bad. Also the really short nails don't help, but I had to cut them and even them out last night. They were driving me crazy.
Okay, so opinions on Skull & Glossbones? I didn't do a Short 'n Chic "best of" post of 2011, but if I had, the OPI PotC collection would have topped the list. I'm crazy about every polish I got from that collection, this one included. A set of pastels that drive me wild...who would have thought?
