Brief post this morning because I have a migraine. On to our next Valentine polish, NOPI I Love You Cherry Much, a red glass fleck and Target exclusive that was released back in the summer of 2011. I think by the summer of that year, glass flecks were like Pokemon to me ... I HAD TO HAVE THEM ALL. Now does this one live up to my expectations?
Three coats with SV.
Answer: Ehhhhhhhhhhh? Yes, in that it's a red glass fleck. But also ... nope, because I feel there are better ones out there. However, I'm really pleased with how these photos turned out! How ironic is it that I get some pretty awesome photos of this red glass fleck despite being not wowed by it? (For the record, I think SpaRitual Intention and especially OPI The Spy Who Loved Me contain stronger, more visible glass fleck particles. I haven't tried RBL Lotus Elise, but I think that might have stronger, more visible particles as well.)
Formula was good on this NOPI, more on the thin but not too watery side. You don't need to load up your brush, which is nice. Dry time was super fast.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you still can find this polish at Target if you want it for around $7. As Shania said, it don't impress me much, but again, that's because I've seen it executed better.
All right, I have an important errand to do today before I go sit in a four-hour Met Opera broadcast ("Rusalka"). Speaking of opera, how cool was it to see Anna Netrebko at the Sochi opening ceremony last night? LOL at that ceremony, but at least they played a little bit of Mr. Trololo. Oh, Sochi. You're kind of a mess, but that was amazing, so thanks for that. And for this article. And this one. (Rhythmic gymnast, you say?!)
