This is the completed mani (for thumbnail's sake)...
And now the story... A while back I bought Sinful Colors - Dream On
I bought the polish because it was so pretty and bright in the bottle. I assume that it's a dupe for Illamasqua - Stance. The first time I applied Dream On, it dried really dark! I was soooo bummed :( I decided to go hunting for another.
I found Jesse's Girl - Wild Thing while out shoping with my friend, the Fashionista :)
My bottle has a tall thin cap not this big square one... strange!
We each bought a bottle because, along with me, she thought that her bottle of Dream On was a little deceiving. Surprise, surprise... Wild Thing dried dark too *sigh*.
I personally can't really see a difference in the two polishes but I'll let you decided for yourself...
I applied 3 coats of each polish. Dream On is thumb, middle finger and pinky. Wild Thing is index and ring fingers.
In certain lighting / angles Dream On looks slightly darker than Wild Thing. Other times they look exactly the same. Very frustrating!
I have seen swatches online of Illamasqua - Stance and it seems as if that polish dries dark as well :'( I've come to terms with the fact that the color I am looking for is unattainable, and that is ok.
Of course I couldn't walk around with just plain polish on my nails... So I busted out the laser tape that I got from Amazon a while back and my handy-dandy dotting tool (it's just a polka-dotty kind of week I guess lol)!
My frustration turned into immediate joy and I was a very happy lady!
Again I just wanted to say thanks for all of the lovin'! You guys rock :) And just a reminder that I plan on having a giveaway when I reach 25 followers (tell yo friends... yes... I said YO)! Lol...
Until next time!
