I chose this one against my better judgment. When I saw it in the store I thought, this looks a lot like OPI Sand In My Suit... which has never worked on my skintone, and its pearlescent shimmer has never appealed to me (I really need to get rid of my bottle). But I thought Don't Honk Your Thorn might be different. It's a light beige-y nude with silver microshimmer. And it's pretty. But I think it's too warm for me. Actually, though, looking at it in pictures, I like it. But when I was actually wearing it? The whole time I was like, eh...it's okay. I couldn't wait to replace it with a punchier color (and I did, and you will see that very soon; infinitely more exciting, I swear). As for the formula, it was decent. I found it to be a little thick, and at my standard two coats there were a few bald patches, so I did three. Oddly enough, this polish dried with tiny bubbles throughout. At first I thought it was my topcoat, but when I was removing it it looked like there were little pinprick holes in it; so it was definitely the polish. I dunno, guys. I'm not crazy about this color. I think it appealed to me because it was the lone neutral amid a sea of brights and neons.
Speaking of disappointments, we should talk about Peter Pilotto for Target. Nothing was super appealing to me, and the prices were actually kind of high. To be fair, my Target seems to have gotten a pretty small selection of things. Out of the stuff I tried on, this top is the only thing I liked (I was holding the tag back, hence the weird arm thing happening):
I didn't get it, though. I didn't check to see what it was made of, but the material was very thin with very little structure. I love the colors and the print, and if I see it on clearance I'll probably pounce on it then. I tried on a couple dresses and a button-down, but nothing really made the cut. I'll be scoping out the clearance racks in the coming weeks to see what's up and to see if there are any online returns of stuff that didn't hit stores, but all in all I'm pretty disappointed in this collection. It's too bad. I love prints.
You know what I did buy, though? THIS:
NO SHAME, GUYS
Okay, that's all for today. How depressing! Lackluster polish choice and a lackluster Target collaboration. Did anyone else check out the Peter Pilotto stuff? Get anything? And what about China Glaze City Flourish? I'm curious to know what your picks were. I have one more to show you from that collection, and I'm hoping it's much more exciting.
