Geeky madness here. My favorite (currently only, as well) MMORPG is having a beta weekend starting now to test its new expansion pack, and I’m nerdily anxious to play. So you get a short post from me. But a good one!
China Glaze’s fall collection, The Great Outdoors, had me all excited when it was first announced. As time went on and swatches appeared, my enthusiasm dimmed which is actually good for my wallet. There was one shade, though, that I just had to have. Wood You Wanna? is a silvery gray-purple-brown foil.
I love brown polishes yet am picky about them. Don’t like them looking like dirt or…. other organic matter, if ya know what I mean. A good way to avoid this with browns is to get a shimmer, foil, or glitter instead of a plain creme.
Ulta is currently having a BOGO sale on all China Glaze (CG) polishes, good through tomorrow, Saturday. New releases are included. That’s buy one get one free, a rare sale these days; usually things are buy one get one half off. So two CGs that normally cost $7.50 each are $3.75 each. ♪ ♫ Awwwwe-some! ♫ ♪
Wood You Wanna? applied extremely smoothly and gave good coverage in one coat. Yes, it’s that rare bird, a one-coat wonder. It also dried very shiny. Under indirect bright outdoor light, with the flash, and under artificial indoor light:
I love this polish. LOVE IT. Right up my alley for fall, and it’s a brown that looks good on my cool-toned skin. Oh, and it begs a comparison to another new fall color I reviewed, Frock ‘n Roll from Essie.
Not dupes. Wood You Wanna? is more brown and silver, and Frock ‘n Roll is more purple. I like both.
Have a great weekend!
