I'm sorry, I'm sorry, but I am here with yet another FOA polish. I don't know what it is but despite not really being a polish kind of person, I have been so into the FOA polishes in the past couple of months.
This NOTD features 'Castle on a Cloud,' a shimmery super light lavender, almost-white kind of shade. From a distance it looks like a light grey but close up it is obvious that there are underlying purple tones.
According to all nail polish laws, this should take approximately 8 coats to reach full opacity, but instead it took only two.
Unfortunately I have ridiculously shocking circulation in my hands (which often leaves my hands with a greyish tinge) and therefore although this polish was actually quite beautiful, it added to the corpse 'look' I have going. Not nice.
Other people seemed to like it though, and I certainly didn't hate it. Wearing such a neutral kind of polish was a nice change from all the brights I usually wear.
This chipped after three days of wear, about average in my opinion. It doesn't really have a glossy finish like some polishes, in fact it is quite a matte, almost dull finish, so after an extended wear time it can look almost grotty.
I quite like this polish, it was relatively quick drying and a non offensive, nice kind of colour. What are your thoughts?
Also, check out my ring - it was made in Cambodia by former street children and before it was a ring it was...a teaspoon!
