It Isn't Easy Being Green (and Cheap)

Posted by Kimberly Purcell at 7/30/2010 09:50:00 PM
You truly do, at times, get what you pay for.  Not always, but sometimes.  This is the case here...
A green called 'Lost Paradise' by Jade.  Looks pretty in the bottle. (OK, I'm not great about using self-tanner on my feet.  Thus, they look 'sick'.)  The color is a yellowish-green and you can tell, right away, that it's going to be watery.
And I have 4 coats on here!  Still the polish wouldn't become opaque.  Not really a hard worker.  Sort of like someone who tries to be your friend but just can't come through.  I'm trying to figure out what to do with a polish that just plain sucks.
See?  Wouldn't this have been a pretty color if it would have been more friendly?  But I got it at the nail supply store and this was on the cheap wall.  This was a $1 or 2.  Yep, you get what you pay for, in this case. 

What's your advise on this loser?

*takes misbehaving polish and puts it in the corner for future Zoya exchanges*

Awww, maybe you can use it to franken? As a sort of thinner polish? :X It does look kinda of... ah, what's the word for it, weak!

Sometimes inexpensive polishes are great, a la Color Club. But othertimes, yeah, they suck.

Franken it. :) Thats my motto when I've got a lacquer thats meh. It would look great with a green mica powder or a green mineral lose powder eye shadow. Woot woot - especially since its a thin formula cuz the powder will thicken it up. Good luck whatever you decide to do with it.
