Everything I buy is vintage and smells funny. Maybe that's why I don't have a boyfriend.

Hi guys!
The quote above is from Lucy Liu - it cracked me up the first time I saw it!

Anyhow! Here is a little something that arrived in my mailbox on friday...
Eyeko's Vintage Polish!

NB: I am desperately running out of Seche Vite, meaning until the new bottles get here you're gonna have to deal with ugly bubbly top coat again. *sigh*

The colour in the above pics is pretty true to life, except its a teensy bit more green. It looks kinda blue here. My camera went funked up at the idea of photographing this one. :(

I really didn't enjoy this, I left it on for a couple of days purely to make it worthwhile... application was pretty damn awful, though apparently it's better than the old formula, which must have been a total nightmare. The colour is pretty as hell, but it was quite sheer, and with my long nails and the tiny bottles, doing three coats used up about a third of a bottle!! Mostly this is because it won't let you do a thin coat as it was so goopy.
But the colour is hella pretty, although next time I think I'll franken my The Face Shop mint green to make it a bit darker and more blue, the application of it was better and considering price and availability, I probably wouldn't buy it again.
