Hey everyone! How are you doing? Hope you're alright, since it's Fridaaay! I had my last written exam today and i'm on a break for two months. I still need to study, but not nearly as intensive as I did in the past couple of months. I still have my oral part of exam next week, so don't un-cross your fingers just yet for me! ;)
Today I have for you one of the let-downs. I thought Cashmere Cardigan will be just the thing for me, as I am still in my soft-periwinkle-washed-dusty-blue phase, but I put it on and wanted to remove it right away. I planned to do some scotch tape with it, but after colour disappointed me so much, I lost all creativity.
The thing that actually bothered me about this one was that it is too purple for my taste still. I'd add less purple and more blue in it and it would probably be perfect.
I thought it will be a two coater, I needed three to even it up. Mind you, my nails are rather long here. I didn't have any troubles with it, it's still the Orly lovely formula and the brush is fantastic. A nicely behaved polish, I just have the problem of expecting something else. I'm picky, I know, but with so many polishes out there, I kinda can afford to be.
Cashmere Cardigan is a part of Orly Prepster Collection for Spring 2009, a rather boring collection for me, I don't like one colour in it, Cashmere Cardigan is by far the best there. But to each their own, I always say!
Oh, btw, I wondered how close this gets to one of my favourite types of blue I adore lately, Essence Forget-me-not, so I did a quick bottle shot, in case you're wondering about the difference as I did.
I like this photo because it shows them both on sunlight and in the shade. :D
So yeah ... I'm picky, aren't I? Oh well, what can I do. :) What are your thoughts about this particular Orly? Do you like soft, periwinkle type of blues or are they too gentle for you?
Thank you for reading, have a great Friday!
