Fun? Hold that thought. I'll come back to that.
But first, this is China Glaze Five Rules, from their tie-in Colour Your Destiny collection with the film version of "The Giver" (which met with both lukewarm and abrasive reviews upon its release last weekend). I picked up three CYD polishes the first time I saw the display back in July; I already blogged Capacity to See Beyond, so Five Rules makes the Number 2 out of 3. :)
I feel like I have something similar to Five Rules, but I ain't even mad. I love it.
Three coats with SV.
So yeah, I think we can say I liked Five Rules just as much as the critics did not like the movie. The formula was creme polish perfection, so I would have to be stupid to get rid of this. And while this color is not all that unique, I am not one to kick a flattering neutral shade out of my stash! Five Rules definitely resides in the putty/greige neighborhood, but it doesn't have overly greenish or reddish tones. Obviously in certain lights you can see the grey stone cast better than in others. In fact, here are 2 photos that I thought pulled out the grey tones rather well:
Sooooooooo gorgeous. I love it. If you're looking for it, the Colour Your Destiny is out now and it's limited edition, so go grab it before it's gone. I did because you know me and my LE Disease ... it's a problem. :)
Any thoughts on this polish? Did you go see the movie last weekend? If you did, I'm curious to hear what you think. I think I'll wait till this can come to Redbox or something. Oh, and if you want me to see another Colour Your Destiny polish here, leave a comment with your request -- the first one I actually have, I'll blog it in the coming weeks.
Next on the agenda: Anna and I wanted to thank you for reading Skinny Dipping for two years, so we took the liberty of putting together a little giveaway! One lucky U.S.-based reader will win four of our favorite nude polishes, all previously blogged as Skinny Dipping entries. It's pretty easy to guess who picked what!
From left to right:
This giveaway is open to U.S. readers following via Google Friend Connect (apologies to our international friends!) until Saturday, August 30 at 11:59 p.m. EST. One winner will be chosen and announced on August 31. That lucky lady will be given 2 days to respond to an email from one of us, so please reply as soon as you can! If you don't, we will have to choose another winner. (--And yes, I will pay more attention this time so we don't have a repeat of what happened on my last giveaway, hahaha.)
Please fill out the Rafflecopter form to enter the giveaway and find out how you can make additional entries. Good luck!
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much! We hope you've loved Skinny Dipping as much as we love this feature. <3
