Last week I wore a lovely pink polish from I Love Nail Polish, and although I didn’t get a full week out of it like I normally do out of the polishes that I wear, my time with it was brutal cut short when I decided (after much deliberation) that it was time to cut my nails. Removal was a breeze, I didn’t have any issues with the nail polish staining my fingers or my nails. I seriously hated having to take it off and /I almost… almost decided not to do a NPLC this week, just because I loved it so much.
Vacation Time is a pretty dusty rose brown creame. In the bottle i wasn’t really impressed or wow’ed by the color, but on the nail i thought it was really flattering, this particular polish fits two themes, it’s great for the fall AND it’s (somewhat) pink so it fits in with the pink nails for October theme I have going on at the moment. before I get to the color let me say that I purchased this polish before I looked at the name, but I figured with a name like that it would a bright color, maybe something that evokes a tropical island vacation. I picked up this polish, looked at it and put it down and went about my shopping, then came back and put it in my cart. This is defiantly not the type of color that I would seek out. When I looked at it I instantly thought of my grandmother, when she wore nail polish it was always a dusty rose shade, and maybe that’s why I picked it up… nostalgia, and honestly the color has been growing on me.
These colors look great on people with warmer and/or darker skin tones.. The formula is thin, but builds nicely to a streak-free finish in two coats. I think it’s called Vacation Time because it’s a work-friendly polish color. I imagine staring at my nails after a hard week at work and thinking. And I also put this color on my toe nails so that proves how much I like this color, I’ve been reading what others have thought about this particular polish and a one of the mentioned that the color was nothing like the color in the bottle, when I found to be very confusing because the picture is very much exactly like it is in the bottle perhaps the bottle that blogger used as old…who knows nail polish is a funny thing.
This is a great color, and if you can’t find this particular polish search from a very close dupe is Pure Ice’s Envy . And the best part is both brands are inexpensive so frugal fashionistas won’t have an issue with this splurge. Pure Ice polish’s normal retail for $1.97. Or is you are looking for something with a higher price point I would suggest OPI’s Barefoot in Barcelona.
Even though it’s only Tuesday, it’s been a busy week and I haven’t been able to wrangle Tsuki to take a picture with this week’s pick… so for your viewing enjoyment you’ll get derpy Tsuki. I like this polish for I’m gonna give it a 8 out of 10. I think this is a versatile polish that can go far in my collection.
Sinful Color’s Vacation Time retails for $1.99.
Until Next Time…
