As the name of this one might imply, it is gray. But it is a very, very cool gray. So cool, in fact, that I questioned whether or not it was gray when I got it home and looked at it in my kitchen light (which is terrible). But no, it's definitely gray. It just looks like a powder blue sometimes. What to say about Insta-Dri? You all already know about the a.) weird shaped bottle b.) long, flat brush stem that is hard to wipe off and c.) the canoe paddle brush. At one point I thought I was used to the brush, but it had been a while since I had used one of these polishes, so when I went to do my nails I was basically like WTFFFFFF all over again. The formula was good, though, for such a light color. Two coats and I was in business. I actually really, really like this polish. It's a really good neutral and I think it's nice for winter and even into spring. Oh yeah, and the display I found this on said these polishes are "new and improved" or something along those lines. ?? I don't know. The formula seems to be the same. The staying power of this has been good so far, though. I'm on my third day of wearing it with nary a chip in sight (but some tipwear).
In other news, I got this really professional, adult-looking watch from Bed, Bath & Beyond yesterday:
I know, I know. You want one too to wear with your work ensembles. I get it. Lucky for you there were a bunch of prints--not just sprinkles!--and this was only like $14. Can we also talk about how all BB&Bs are not created equal? There's one about half an hour from me that has a Harmon's in it and dude. It's good. I almost never get to go there, but I'm going to have much more occasion in the future because I'm teaching for a school with a campus right next to it. Hey, benefits. Ben is out of town so I texted him a picture of this watch and somehow it ended up in this conversation, which cracked me up:
This is how we share our love. It was basically our wedding vows.
Okay, NEXT WEEK I will have at least one post. And that post will go up Monday or Tuesday, I promise. It's becoming a habit to not have something up until Friday and I don't like it. So I'm going to do my best next week. MY BEST. Which sometimes isn't that great. But I have a sprinkle watch on, so please forgive me. Has anyone else run across this "new and improved" Insta-Dri display? I'm always kind of happy to see new SH polishes, but the colors for like the past year in seasonal collections have not been speaking to me. But! This gray is good. Trust me.
