If you didn't know yet, Rite-Aid is now carrying the Color Club polish line. This color is part of their spring Blossoming collection and I saw this on the shelf today and fell in love with it. I don't know why they call it Blue-Ming because it is definately not blue, but a lovely pastel mint color. The pictures you are seeing are from day 3 after I have slept twice and soaked in a luscious bubble bath (more on that later) so obviously it has some staying power.
First the good. I'm a big Color Club fan. I've had really good luck with all their polishes. And did I mention I love this color? It reminds me of China Glaze Refreshmint (which is one of my all time favorite polish colors).
Chipped my middle finger, darnit!
If you have good you have to have bad - right? Unfortunately - the formula on this was AWFUL. The first coat was draggy and patchy. The second coat covered up the dragging, but as it dried it began to bubble. Badly. I can still see the bubbles through the third coat. Since it's late and I don't feel like removing it, I'm going to throw a top coat on it and see if I can disguise the bubbling.
Is the color worth the application issues? As much as I'd like to say yes - I'm going to have to say no. Go with Refreshmint instead. This one is definately a 'miss' for me.
Also a couple quick product reviews today -
I just picked this up at Rite-Aid as well and wanted to share my thoughts.
Its EOS brand shave cream in pomegranate raspberry scent. The bottle says "ultra moisturizing paraben-free with natural aloe and shea butter". The creamy consistency reminds me a lot of Lush's Turkish Delight. It does not foam, but rather is a creamy lotion that conditions your legs while you shave. It also comes in a plastic bottle so you don't have that annoying rust on the bottom of your shaving cream can. LOVE! This pic is from their website.
Are you a Lush fan? If not you should drop into a store or check them out online. They have all natural and organic bath and beauty products that are just fabulous and both Amanda and myself are completely in love with them. Today I used The Comforter bubble bar which not only gave me mounds of bubbles with a sweet Black Currant fragrance, but also turned my bath water a girly pink color. So relaxing! Picture is from their website. I love Lush's bubble bars and bath bombs.
Have a great day and Happy Patriot's Day!
