China Glaze Tempest - meh
Last weekend I was extremely stressed out and decided that I needed a new nail polish in order to feel better. :) I popped into my Sally Beauty Supply hoping to score a polish from China Glaze's Bahama Blue collection, even though they've come out with Romantique since then, as my SBS is a little slow on the whole new collection thing. Alas, the Bahama Blues were gone and Romantique was taking their place. Romantique isn't really my thing so I decided to pick a polish from China Glaze's regular collection. That was hard ... there were so many pretty colors! Eventually I settled on Tempest, a bluey purpley color that looked very awesome and intruiging. Once on the nail though, I realized that Tempest has a pearl finish. I'm not a huge fan of pearl finishes ... I don't know why, they just irritate me. So poop. Also the application was not so great, I had to use 4 coats to get a good opacity and no streaks. Plus I wanted the color to be more blue than it is. This picture makes it look bluer than it is, it's really like a dark periwinkle that learns towards the purple side. So I'm not really digging this color. Its not that I hate it or anything, its just kind of blah.
