China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le

Happy Thursday! no Ulta today... tomorrow it is! sadly, i also have to go one of my most dreaded places... the grocery store. yuck!

today we have the first swatch of a basic color polish that is not OPI! it's China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le. the name seems lame to me... are all the dashes necessary? i get where they were going with it, but... ick on all the dashes! SPWL is a gorgeous blurple (blue purple) cream. the color is beyond gorgeous. it is truly the color of periwinkle flowers. wish i had a flower to take a picture with the polish... but i live in an apartment complex that doesn't plant them AND it's winter! i used three coats... but i'm marking it down to user error because it's literally the first time in years i've used a traditional polish brush with regular colored polish (not topcoats). i do prefer the fatter brushes, but the skinny ones aren't terrible.

here's three coats SPWL topped with one coat Seche Vite.




i'm so excited to try out the other colors! tomorrow will be a comparison of blue glitters between China Glaze Dorothy Who? and OPI Abolutely Alice. they are very similar, but one is warm toned and the other cool. check back tomorrow to find out more! Ria :)
