B is for...Believe

OK so admittedly, today's swatch is a little boring.  I wanted this color for SO long and then when I got it I was underwhelmed.  Does that ever happen to you? It IS gorgeous, don't get me wrong. It's just that I'm unsure what to do with it. It's not sheer enough to layer but it's still too light to do much in the way of art.  I fancied it as more of a metallic than it ended up being.  If you click the picture to blow it up you can see all the pretty sparklyness of it. It actually has a lot of different colors in there, much like Essie Pure Pearlfection. It glistens nicely in the sun (which we unfortunately have none of.)  Even though it's a great neutral and very sparkly, it's ultimately just a bit too vanilla for my taste. Here is is with a matte topcoat...




I actually like this a lot better matte because it looks sort of velvety and smooth and I think it gives it the edge it needs.  It does lose some shimmer once matted but it's very unique.   I can't complain too much since I got this polish in a three pack on clearance!! But I don't think I'd buy it at full price! No art for today since I have some Thanksgiving art going up later!! :) Hope everyone who celebrates has a very happy holiday!

  2. I agree with you Bee, I find pearly polishes pretty but I am not the biggest fan of them. Great Photos though!
