Earlier this week, I stopped by Sally Beauty on the off chance that they might have this collection in stock... and they did! Better yet... the display still had every.single.bottle! Out of 6 original lemmings from this collection, I only picked up 2 after seeing them in person... Five Rules, a creamy greige polish, and History Of The World.
I haven't been feeling dark polishes at all recently, given the fact that it's still summer, and I'm hanging on to every last drop of humidity while it lasts! BUT... as soon as I purchased History Of The World, it kept calling to me, begging to make it onto my nails waaaaay sooner than later.
History Of The World is a not-too-muted steelish navy blue that's got a little bit of gray and purple added into the mix. If you look at it directly, and in full lighting, you really take in the saturated, pretty blue hue. If you see it from a distance, you might think it's black. Just a quick glance, and it could be mistaken for a charcoal gray. Excuse me while I have a total fangirl moment over here... O.o (okay, I'm done... moving on.)
Application was flawless, pretty standard for China Glaze in my experience. Two coats would've been sufficient, but I want to enjoy this polish for a little while, so I added a third coat AND wrapped my tips for some extra mileage.
Have you picked up any polishes from The Giver collection?
