Fishbowl Friday *038*

Hooray! It's Friday, and that means it's time for another installment of Fishbowl Friday here at Studio Sparkle... We're keeping it really simple this week. BLUE nails...

Wet n Wild Sky Me Mine California Dreaming

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats Wet n Wild Sky Me Mine
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

After a very long time searching for the California Dreaming collection from Wet n Wild, I finally found this shade, Re: Incarnation, and Bee-U-tiful at Walgreens the other week. Sadly, there were no more bottles of Sun Settle Down or Green Tease. While I could probably live without Sun Settle Down, (it's orange) I am still looking for Green Tease. But I haven't seen this collection anywhere other than at Walgreens. Boo.

Formula-wise, I've always like the mega-last line. This particular polish is a little thicker than the average. I'm not sure if that's because it's pastel? It self-leveled out well enough, but the problem wasn't streakiness. It was incredibly visible brush marks. As someone who paints right before bed, I often have to wait until morning to see if my polish leveled off. This seemed to meld a little bit when I added a coat of clear, so I crossed my fingers and went to bed.

And smudged my thumb.

But I didn't realize that until this morning. Such is life.

I really like the color of this polish, I just wish the formula were a little less thick. But if that's what it takes to avoid chalkiness and streaks, I'll manage. I haven't cracked open the other two yet, so I don't know if this is a thing with just Sky Me Mine, or if the entire collection has a thicker formula. Re: Incarnation is definitely calling my name, but before that? I feel like I need a little green. It's been a while since I wore green!

Weekend-wise, it looks like it's going to be a decently relaxing one, and I really can't ever complain about that! Happy Friday to you... hope you have a nice, chill weekend too!
