Back in April we loaded our carcasses into the Family Truckster and drove up to Woodbridge, VA. They have that big outlet mall, Potomac Mills, and there's an IKEA on the premises. We went to buy some items for the kitchen that weren't available online and of course I needed a Helmer or two!
While at the mall I stumbled upon a Blooming Beauty Supply. If you don't have one at your mall, think of a way-cooler Trade Secret. BBS doesn't have a web site and I believe they're franchised. What you find at one you might not find at another. This BBS had some China Glazes I'd been looking for like Good Witch? and C-c-courage. I was also on the hunt for an OPI full size of Not Like the Movies and I scored. I also picked up a gorgeous medium blue polish with blue glitter, Rainstorm.
Against my steering wheel. Can you believe that's FIVE coats?
Oh, I want to love Rainstorm but this polish is terrible! I took my time on a lazy Friday evening...this polish is a runny, watery mess. I couldn't get an even application. I had bald spots on all nails. It took five coats and it was still a bald, streaky mess with VNL.
Sunday came and I went to get my pedicure. I really didn't want them offering me a manicure. Manicures at a salon bore me to tears. I can't read and they try to nip my cuticles. Back off, ack! So I salvaged Rainstorm with OPI's Silver Shatter.
Sun was scarse that day. I had to snag it when I could.
Outside Wags, inside my car.
Oh, Rainstorm. What will I do with you? Did I get a bum bottle? I've seen swatches online and it's gorgeous when others use it. With me it was an utter failure. I don't even know if it makes a decent layering polish. Perhaps with the shatters I can still have some fun with Rainstorm.
