China Glaze Sun of a Peach and Flying South Review
Have you tried those fuzzy, furry nail polishes? Today I did for the first time after finding a bottle of China Glazes Flying South among my CG polishes. I have no idea how it got there, but I decided to give it a try. I figured it would require a colored base coat, so I chose Sun of a Peach since the peachy orange color seemed to work well with the orange sawdust (that's what it looked like to me). Overall, I was disappointed with the process, but the result wasn't too bad. I started with two coats of the orange base color. Sun of a Peach was watery and streaky. It pooled and was difficult to work with. The good thing about it was that it dried quickly. I give this one two thumb nails down. The application was difficult and although the color was nice, it wasn't worth the effort it took to apply.
Next I applied a few coats of orange furry sawdust (Flying South) which started to morph into a mangy rat right before my eyes. It was like when Ron turned his pet rat into a furry cup with a tail in the Harry Potter movie. I started to feel a little disgusted. I think that the fuzzy polishes just don't go over well with me. Maybe if it were blue or something that might remind me of a soft, warm bathrobe rather than a sick rabid rodent I could appreciate the concept. Overall, this was one of my least appealing manicures. I couldn't wait to snap the pictures and get that stuff off my nails. All ten are currently recuperating from the horrors and look forward to returning to the field as soon as possible. In the mean time, I will work on removing the entire experience from my memory.
What do you think of fuzzy polishes? Can you stomach them or do they give you the creepy crawlies?
Ciao for now.
