NOTD - Jackie is a Siren

Tai: What's a monet?
Cher: It's like a painting, see? From far away, it's OK, but up close, it's a big old mess.

See, everything in life can refer back to Clueless.

Yesterday was my "change my polish" day and decided to pull out one of my polishes I have yet to try out, Essie's Jackie Oh My.

I admit, I only purchased this for the name (I need to stop doing that!!!). I had high hopes for this natural-looking shimmery-soft white polish. I wanted something lighter, something different than the grays and dark shades I usually go for.

Aaaaaaaaand here's how it ended up :(

Gosh, my nails look so sad (I didn't make this a large picture for a reason)! This is 4 coats, people. 4. Coats. Application was a pain, it streaked so badly and color was uneven. It was late enough that I didn't have time to change it, so I just wore it for the day today- I just didn't like it at all. Bringing it back to the quote at the top of the post, it looked fine from afar, but up-close I just couldn't stand it.

The first thing I had to do after having dinner - CHANGE MY POLISH.

I decided to go back to what I love the most and know the best.


Wet n Wild in Sexy Siren

Sexy Siren is a limited edition polish that was released sometime last year (I think, don't quote me on that though). It's a dark navy blue with a beautiful shimmer (not glitter!!!).

The Rock Solid formula from Wet n Wild has to be my favorite from the brand, it applies with no hassle, and even without a topcoat it dries pretty fast on its own. This is two coats, but the color is so opaque you could easily do one.

Yeah, I don't think I'm cut out for dainty sheer polish....
