hello hello! i am back from a business trip to austin, tx. it was fun despite the cold; will queue a post up after the following psa/rant:
i think i have a new favorite nail color but sally hansen is driving me nuts! check out these two sally hansen salon swatches below:
it's my new favorite nail polish color: a super pale pink that isn't as glaring as a solid white polish; but light enough to make me look really warm and tan. makes me feel sunny and socal. (:
but they are freakishly similar right? these pictures of "you-gurt style" and "pardon my french" were taken on different days so it's not really fair to compare them. here they are swatched on alternating fingers:
if you ask me, there is no freaking difference. i don't even remember which is which. i'm thinking "pardon my french" is just a rename because "you-gurt style" is a terrible polish name. i mean... seriously? that's understandable and forgivable and all that but THEN look what happened!
my nails turned purple! wtfffff. this is day 3! and you can see that two air bubbles have been stained something terrible, too. compare to the color in the bottle:
compare to a new re-application (on middle finger and pinky):
the difference is a lot more dramatic in person; you can see it better if the photo is darker or desaturated:
my primary suspect is the water supply in austin, tx. here in santa clara county we supposedly have really good water, and when i was brushing my teeth in austin i definitely noticed a strong tap water taste. i was only there for 2 days! what do they put in there? o_O
my second thought was that i got a new pen but i can't imagine how that would get such uniform color change across all my nails on both hands...
has anyone else had a polish color randomly change on them?
