Oh hey blogger, it's been awhile huh?
Nine days, huh?
I'M A TERRIBLE BLOGGER, HUH???
I'm sorry for my absence... it was kind of sort of my birthday and my mom and brother kind of sort of flew to Boston from Minnesota and I was kind of sort of being busy in real life.
I hope you can find it in your beauty junkie hearts to forgive me!!
To kick off my back-to-blogging-bonanza I figured I'd share a nail polish I wore a couple of weeks ago (yikes, it really has been awhile...) since, well, you know; my blog wouldn't be much if it weren't for NOTD posts considering it's my kryptonite (aside from chocolate).
I picked up "Unpredictable" while on an outing to Ulta a few weeks ago because it was in the sale bin for $3. Three dollars!! What an unpredictable little surprise ho ho ho (the name of this one is just screaming for puns galore... I'll spare you at one). And considering I've had a thing in my mind lately for holographic nails I just couldn't pass this up. The blue/green/gold holo looked like all sorts of gorgeous especially when I peered into the bottle; look at that green lava in the photo above!
However, please note that I said looked... past tense...
yup, this didn't exactly translate into the beautiful holo that I thought it was when applied to my nails.
It's not that "Unpredictable" isn't pretty, it's just that it was... well... unpredictable (I know I said I'd stop at one but I just can't help myself when it comes to puns)!!
"Unpredictable" is pretty much void of any holographic tendencies but is rather a straight up metallic green/teal. Seriously the metallic finish on this polish is insane, mimicking that of brushed chrome. So if that's the kind of finish you like then this polish is going to be right up your alley. I personally am just not a fan of metallic polishes so this was a bit of a let down for me, especially when the bottle makes "Unpredictable" look so beautifully holographic (or at least duochrome).
Oh well, you win some you lose some right?
As much as I love sale bins, sometimes there's a reason those items were on sale in the first place.
Galileo's glad to have me blogging again so I hope you're happy I'm back too!
Have you tried china glaze's "Unpredictable"?
Love it? Hate it?
Do you have any polishes that are actually holographic?
