Hi there, everyone!
I have been out for so long. I haven't felt like writing anything at all since the last time I did. I've been active on IG as usual, but not on here (AS USUAL.) In fact, I'm feeling kind of lazy right now. I have a lot on my mind, but I'm escaping it by writing this.
I bought half of Essie's Retro Revival just to be able to swatch it. When my friend Selina (from www.sluenidoesnails.com) and I were talking about this collection, I swore to her I wouldn't buy a single bottle. But curiosity got the best of me...and addiction, of course. I got my polishes from Polish Please.
Birthday Suit here took me 4 thin coats. It was watery and streaky, so I had difficulty with it. I was surprised to see this lovely outcome after the 4th coat because I was losing all hope after the 3rd. I thought I was gonna throw this bottle away from disappointment. I can hardly say I'm happy with it, but I know this is something I'm keeping for the rare times I'm feeling delicate. This shade is really good for work or weddings, if you're interested.
Cabana Boy was something that I knew I would like, and it did not disappoint, with just 3 thin coats. It wasn't too hard to work with, compared to Birthday Suit. It has a slight silver shimmer to it, so it's really unique. I haven't had any shade like this before.
I only bought Starry Starry Night because everyone was nuts about it. I wanted to compare to Zoya's Dream, too. I'm sad to say this falls short of expectation. It does build up nicely, but is probably a 7 or 8 out of a perfect 10 score.
Here are some stamping I did with these shades:
I hope you guys have a good one! I'm hitting the sack.
