I believe this was two coats, and of course the sun escaped while I was doing my painting.
Of course I wrecked my manicure while still wet, because I was trying to get my shoes on - not for work though, as I was going to the Viking park with my daughter and niece first! So, since I just wasn't very impressed by this grey, subtle shimmer, I pulled out another "neutral". Which was also another Color Club - Soft as Cashmere.
Three coats. Somewhat sheer, especially for a creme, but here's the thing... I've noticed that Color Club polishes very seldom bubbles when coated excessively. For this manicure, I did one coat on the thinner side, and two thick ones. I had about two bubbles on one of my thumbnails, one that happens to be very ridged and uneven - the rest of my nails were good despite the massive amounts of polish. This impresses me.
What a fool I had been, keeping this one in my untrieds drawer for almost a year, believeing it was too bland for me! I thought it was going to be just another greyish taupe, but hey, it has a greenish tinge to it, which makes it a really nice, wearable and subtle, yet still wicked cool khaki color. This one I did bring to work, and I got compliments on it by my coworkers. That made the alizarine a happy girl, and it only verified my own feeling of absolute love.
Both these were from the Untamed Luxury collection from last fall, and this is usually how long I wait before wearing colors... I know, I know. But I still firmly believe I'm more prone to liking them if I wait until the hype blows over, otherwise, I easily become full by all the photos circulating. And while Wild Orchid may not have fulfilled my needs, Soft as Chasmere certainly did, despite not being very new!
