Color Club: It’s Only Natural Swatch and Review
A man walks into a doctors surgery and says”Doc, I can’t stop singing The Green Green Grass of Home, no matter WHAT I do! What’s wrong with me?!” And the doctor says, “hmmm. It sounds like it might be Tom Jones Syndrome”. And the man says: “I’ve never heard of that! Is it rare?” And the doctor says “its not unusual…”
Ok, no, I’m not really. But this is the first of the new nail polishes, and it’s a goodie! In fact, there’s only one thing I don’t like about it, and that is that it’s a mini bottle. I even like the fact that the name got THAT joke in my head instantly. Because I’m easily amused, and proud of it.
Base of bottle / label shot..
I think this has become my favourite ‘my nails but better’ polish. I find it really hard to find the perfect nude colour – most are too peach toned, and my skin has a really strong yellow/olive undertone so the peaches give me corpse hands, and I hate that.
This doesn’t. It has just that little hint of pink to make it really work. This is almost identical to a L’Oreal polish I had, and adored, called Sweet Nothings. I broke that bottle, then when I went to replace it I realised L’Oreal test on animals and so far I’ve found nothing as good. If anyone knows any polishes that look like this, but are full sized and not animal testing, could you let me know?
This is three coats, quite thick. It is a little streaky, but if I can even it out, anyone can. It is sheer, and I would like it to not be, but apart from that it’s perfect. I quite like the effect, it’s almost jelly-ish – it’s just that my nails are stained from a pink polish I had, and I can see the stainage through this polish. Quick drying time, and very shiny – this has top coat but it was shiny without it.
Based on the name, I thought this photo, nails and tree,would be appropriate.
So yes, I love this colour. I do think my hands look nicer with a nude colour, but I love all the other colours way to much to give them up! By tomorrow I expect this will have some bling on it. What’s the bet? 😀
Update. It’s tomorrow, and my nails have some bling on them. Who’da thunk? 😉
This is another polish I got at the IPC garage sale – all I know about it is the brand name, Testimo. Its a salmon-pink tinged clear base with gold/green iridescent glitter in it. Super pretty! Then three pink hexagonal glitter arranged on top – these were in a nail art wheel from the $2+ shop in Feilding. I was going for 4 on the diagonal, but my hands are super shaky today, so 3 it was!
