No, this isn’t going to be a tribute post to the recently-departed Leonard Nimoy, although that’s a worthy idea.
Instead it’s a swatch post of a new-to-me polish with the actual color name Greetings Earthlings. The other day when I was in the local Kmart searching for — and finding! — the new Coca-Cola collection from Nicole by OPI, I saw a small display on an end cap of foil polishes that I’d never seen before. I am to foil polishes as a moth to the flame.
The brand name is Bonita, and it’s an ultra-budget brand. Not a Kmart exclusive, but I’ve never seen it anywhere else. The display of foils was quite picked over with only a few colors left, and I picked up the silvery blue Greetings Earthlings. The bottle contains 0.4 oz/12 ml and it cost a mere $1.49, which I think was marked down from $1.99.
I’ve only just swatched it so I can’t speak to the wear time yet, but I liked the application. The polish was thick but not too thick, and one coat was almost but not quite enough for full coverage. No visible brushstrokes, typical for most foils. I did think the smell was stronger than, say recent Zoyas or OPIs, but wasn’t terrible.
Under indirect bright sunshine and with the flash:
Wow, for a buck and a half, I’m impressed!
Live long and prosper.
