Of course, there are a SHIT TON of nail polish and nail art accounts on IG, which is terrrrrrrrible for your wallet. They don't even have to be solely nail accounts, though. Take Eva Chen's account, for example. (I don't know too much about her, but I do enjoy her #evachenpose posts, normcore mom wardrobe, and her adorable baby! Also: boy, her high heel immersion program is reaaaaaally not working out, haha.) She posts a lot of polish and NOTD shots from time to time; one day, she posted a picture of a LE Tracy Reese SH CSM that made me go, "OH. SHIT. DO WANT." Lucky for you guys, I don't think this polish will have quite the same effect because, well, it's not easy to pull off.
Three coats with SV.
Dang it, I should have posted NOTD shots with my little jar of honey from the bridal shower. That would have been sorta meta. Oh well.
True story: When I texted a crappy iPhone photo of this polish to Stephanie, her reply went something like, "Of course this would look good on you." (I'm too lazy to scroll all the way up in iMessage and check. You'll just have to take my word for it.) Anyway, see what I mean about Tupelo Honey being tough to pull off? This is not going to look good on you if you are of the melanin deficient variety with red undertones because it's going to look like pewp. Sorry, ladies. On me, though, yasssssssss! I love it. Thanks, Eva Chen! ;)
I don't recall anything weird about this polish. Formula was good, it's opaque in two coats, dry time was good, and it's basically your perfect SH CSM creme. I had this on for four days and save for my SV scratches, it still looked great. Honestly, it just comes down to whether this is a color you can wear, but I just covered that, so. There you go.
Tupelo Honey was released a couple months ago as part of SH CSM's ongoing seasonal collaboration with several designers including SH favorite Tracy Reese, who gave us this very shade. Should you decide you want this, too, I don't think it's very HTF right now -- it actually might be on clearance at Ulta because I can't see this being a super popular polish, at least, not compared to Teesta Turquoise (EMOJI HEART EYES!). So go check it out. Maybe you've got CVS Extra Bucks, I don't know. Go use it on that. I actually picked up this bottle at Kroger one day after coming back from Anna's wedding because I was searching for SH CSM Perfect Pair (from the bridal collection), couldn't find it, and decided I couldn't justify a quest across town without buying *something.* (And that is how I get into trouble. /csb)
I'm curious, though, so tell me: Would you wear this polish? Are shades like Tupelo Honey something you would try out? What are your favorite IG nail accounts? What's the last thing you bought after seeing it on Instagram? What's your favorite SH CSM Tracy Reese shade? --I have a LOT of questions ... it happens when you've been gone for a while. ;)
This song kind of goes on forever, but whatever, it's nice. Sometimes dad rock isn't so bad. ;) Also, RIP, Grooveshark. I miss you so much right now!
All right, I'm out. I'll catch you later this week. Thanks for reading!
