ncLA Poolside Party, All Eyes On Me!

i just don't have good luck with the English tack store in my area. they had ordered riding breeches for me... but they ordered them in beige, when i asked for black! i went ahead and tried them on... and they looked horrid, just as i'd feared. you have to be thin to wear skin tight pants that color! so i guess i'm either going to go back to the Western tack store, or just order the ones i want offline. it's one of those... gee, i wish i knew that my pants were ordered in the wrong color while i was holding a black pair at another store! it's not a big deal, i have my boots and my half chaps, so i'm pretty good to go.

today's polish is ncLA Poolside Party, All Eyes On Me!, the exclamation mark is part of the name! it's a long name for a relatively simple polish... but don't be fooled by its simplicity, it's really pretty :) it's a light/medium peach creme that still manages to be quite bright. in some lights, it leans towards orange sherbert! the formula is great, the first coat was a little scary and streaky, but it evened out perfectly with the next. the trick with this polish is to use a really light touch and spread the polish gently out over the nail. i used that method for both coats on my right hand, and i had much less streakiness than on my left, where i applied the first coat with a bit more pressure. i wasn't sure if i was going to like this polish on my skin tone, but its brightness really makes it work. this polish dries shiny, but i like it better with a topcoat!

two coats Poolside Party, one coat Seche Vite.

this is my first polish review in what feels like forever! since i took a long chunk to do other things, there will be a lot more polish reviews coming up... let me know if you have any requests. Happy Monday! Ria :)

:: this polish was given to me for review, these are my honest opinions! ::
