First let me say that I'm dying for this color. I absolutely love it. I love how it looks on my skintone, and it's really neither too yellow nor too blue. I don't think of a "sour apple" when I see this. I think of those really tasty pastel mint things:
om nom nom
Anyway. I don't know how I feel about the "sugar coat" finish. I think these polishes are akin to the new China Glaze Texture polishes, where they're a creme formula instead of a shimmer, like the OPI Liquid Sands or Zoya Pixie Dusts. I actually really, really like how it looks. I think it's really interesting. From far away it just looks like a normal polish to me, for the most part, but then when you get close up you notice the texture. So, color and appearance: good. Buuuuuut I really hate how it feels. I don't mind feeling it with the pads of my fingers (which I've been compulsively doing since I put it on); what I hate is feeling my nails rub against anything. Rubbing against each other? Ugh. Rubbing against my felt iPad case? UGH. Rubbing against my sheets while I'm trying to sleep? UGH.
I'm wondering if maybe one of two things will happen: 1.) I'll get used to it or 2.) the texture will die down after a few days of wear/friction. The latter happened to me with OPI Jinx where the grit seemed to lessen after a couple days, like sea glass or something. But anyway, the formula was fine. I couldn't tell if I should use two coats or go for a third, so I just used two thick coats and it covered fine. I think that I like the color enough that I'll probably reach for this one again, despite the weird scratchy-grabby texture.
I had a nice, albeit short, weekend. I took myself on a date to The Met to see Civil War and American Art, which was wonderful. Oh, it was just beautiful. I bought the catalogue and I can't wait to read it throughout the summer. I also saw the rehung Ren/Baroque galleries, and if there are any fellow New York inhabitants who haven't gone to see those revamped galleries, then you need to go. I did a Target trip on Sunday but didn't really buy anything fun, which is weird for me. I tried on like 12 dresses and couldn't find one I liked enough to buy. Sad. I do love little summer dresses so much.
Anyway, I'm out. I hope everyone has an absolutely lovely Monday.
